How protect postcards painted with creon

Hi guys.
My second post here
I was searching a bit without find the right tread.
Suggest me it please.
I need to paint a postcard with creon (I love the simplest baby way to paint).
I need suggestion on a support (maybe plastic/polistirene if you think good) and mostly a "finishing" that can protect the work when the postcar will be sent.
My wife suggest me "lamination" process..
You can understand.. maybe a "resin"? something like that can be good to protect enough to not destroy all before the postcard reach the destination?

find my lovely work in loversflying

Hi Federico. Welcome to oil pastels. You could try a thin layer of oil painting medium. I've used Dala Alkyd oil painting medium (SA product)with success.

Re: How protect postcards painted with creon

Hello Federico!
I sent two oil pastel postcards this christmas. I painted them on Cotman watercolour postcard pad,varnished them with Sennelier oil pastel fixative-2 layers and put them in an envelope.Its an expensive solution ( that fixative is pricey) but they arrived safely at their destination.
