Any ideas, crafty peas? I have a photograph on canvas that I want to use a stencil on with a thick, clear product.

Not sure of the size of your project, but maybe Glossy Accents?

You can buy clear gesso.

(matte) Heavy gel medium, it is used for body as well as a few other things. Keep in mind that it goes on white, but dries clear. It also is archival, won't yellow or destroy a photo. Its an artists medium, and can be used very easily in stencils. I do it all the time
Clear Gesso is not really very thick (also has a texture to it, much like very fine sandpaper).

Thanks so much. I knew the product had to be out there, but didn't know what to look for. I will check out all of your suggestions.

I like to use Golden's matte medium. I find Mod Podge to have a slightly tacky feel to it even after it dries.

Heavy Gel Medium would work - or maybe try Wendy Vecchi's new Clear Embossing Paste (by Stampers Anonymous/Dreamweaver stencils.
