    Looking for a large profile

    If Vermont Hardwoods can not do this you may talk to Rhonda Feinman. I know they do Gold Leaf but maybe she could do a wood tone? Or have a recommendation for someone that does.

    Jigsaw Puzzles

    Hi Donna, If it already has mod podge I would do something like perfect mount board or Gudy and stick it to a board. I would weight it to be sure the piece adheres well. If you do use glazing you will have to space it away from the face of the puzzle. Others may have another suggestion...
