Mod Podge is a great medium to use on your canvases, mixed media projects, art journals and collages as a glue and sealer (If you wish to use it on a scrap page, just remember to get the paper Mod Podge as it is safe to have near photos etc). It is perfect for wood, fabric, paper and other porous surfaces; it dries clear and best of all it is an easy clean up with soap and water.
In this video, Linda Kaiser demonstrates 3 different uses which I can’t wait to try. The techniques involve using the Mod Podge as a glaze – firstly with Distress re-inkers, secondly with paint and lastly with glitter. The Glitter finish looks especially handy – not only does it have a lovely finish, but any product that can pull a double duty is great as it saves money and space in your craft area.
You will need:
- Mod Podge
- Distress Re-inkers
- craft sticks or skewers
- something to mix on eg an ice cream lid etc
- paint brushes
- cosmetic sponge
- add the Mod Podge to a small amount of the other medium (re-inker, paint or glitter) and mix with a craft stick
- use the cosmetic sponge to apply the re-inker and paint glazes and apply the glitter glaze with a soft paint brush.
- using vintage photo or walnut stain re-inkers would give a antiquing finish
