    I am trying to alter a wood letter "B" and I think I messed it up, I put adhesive down first, then my paper, then the mod podge well now it is all wrinkly.

    I used to do this all the time 20 years ago and I forgot how! Please help me! Is there anyway to save it do you think?

    How does everyone else alter there items?

    Thanks so much!!!

    I would love to know how to do that too. I think I would have tried the modge podge under and over, but what do I know.

    Since it's wood, can you sand off the wrinkled stuff and start again? Just a thought.

    No I decided ti just cover it with little chipboard stuff for boys, like cars, an airplace, and truck. Not bad for my first time.

    However for my daughter's "t" I did it with putting the mod podge down first then paper then another coat. Worked better!! At least her will be grily I can add ribbons and sparkle can't really do that with a little boy's letter

    I would still like other info on how people alter their items how and what do you use??

    How long did you wait with the modge podge? I helped out in a class at CKC and they used it. They said if it looked like airbubbles were still there that in 24 hrs they wouldn't be. So maybe just wait a day and see.

    this is where a brayer also comes in handy. brayer the heck out of it before you put modge podge over the top. That way it is really adhered flat from the bottom. Then let that dry, if in doubt let it dry more.(never hurts to let it go over night and finish the next night) I know it's hard! Then go over it with modge podge.
