Hello,
        I've had some good luck most of the time by airbrushing several thin
layers of acrylic gloss medium on to the back of cloth. Make sure you build
up a good layer and let it dry between sprayings. A few times I've not laid
an adequate coatings and I have had glue bleed through when trying to clue
it to Davie board. Daved Ferrell
