I was hoping you guys would have a good suggestion.
I am making some centerpieces that have popcorn buckets on them. I want to mound the popcorn up and then spray it with something to make it hold together. It will be for display only.

What should I use?

I would say polyurethane, that's what I use to spray gumpaste figures

Thanks. Do you think that will seal the whole thing? I don't want each piece of popcorn to be stuck together so that it doesn't fall apart.

Yes and yes. It can be dusted it has a kind of lacquered finish. A word of caution..do not spray it in doors only OUTSIDE. As for the popcorn I would loosley fasten each piece before spraying.

Ugh, that's a pain. I need to make 15 of these.
Maybe it won't work. We wanted to be sure that they didn't come apart so that no one thought they were edible.
