    Mod Podge

    Has anyone ever used Mod Podge before? I have not. But I saw on Pinterest that I can use that with cardstock/paper with canvas. Just wondering if anyone has any tips before I get started. I didn't even know until I went to Hobby Lobby to buy it that there's like 20 different kinds of it!

    I use it several years ago on puzzles. Just brushed it on with a foam brush and let it dry then turned the puzzle over and did the
    other side. It is really thick and I think it is pretty much Elmers glue (or that is what it seemed like to me). My only tip would be to
    make sure that you let it dry really good between coats or it stays tacky like. Sorry but have never used it on canvas. It does go on white
    but dries clear.

    Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you'll get one thing done.

    I have 2 kinds of it...Matte and Gloss...I use it on a lot of altered projects...It's like using glue and a sealer in one and it holds everything together! I love it!

    Cindy, My daughter uses it all the time on canvas. You do want to use it on each layer. We also use a brayer but don't need to go too crazy b/c bubbles will occur. The bubbles do settle out on their own. She cuts out quotes w/my cricut and puts them onto patterned paper. She also paints canvas black w/acrylic. I think my DD uses glossy and matte mod podge. It's your preference

    I have used matte and gloss too. I have used it on canvas, paper, tissue, fabric flowers on canvas, notebook covers etc. It is not waterproof. I brush it on with a foam brush, a paintbrush, or my fingers. Elmers glue can be watered down to half strength and will be exactly the same as Mod Podge.
    Here are a couple of Mod Podged projects I made:

    Hummm I think it was mod Podge that I used years ago on a wood base. After years it yellowed. I would say don't use on special! Now that I think about it the project was our wedding invatation with our photo. I'll take a photo of it.

    Could it have been the wood that caused the yellowing, I wonder, Clarinda?
