What exactly is mod podge?..ive seen it advertised, and seen many projects (like making jars..covering clipboards...etc. but im still confused on what exactly it is, i know its glue, do you put it on papers to make it sticky and when it dries..clear? Do you use mod pogde for scrapbooking also or is it other DIY crafts? im sorry if this isnt clear, i just need some good explinations of what/how/when to use mod podge. it seems like something i would deffinately love to check out and get into!! Thank you so much in advance!!
I love my mod podge and use it for a whole variety of things. The main thing I use it for is to adhere paper onto chipboard for mini albums. I give a good layer on the chipboard and lay my paper onto. Then I use a brayer to really get a good seal between the paper and chipboard. Using mod podge doesn't wrinkle the papers like some liquid adhesive, sometimes thinner chipboard will bow on me, but a night under a heavy book fixes that.
You can use glossy mod podge to add a layer of shine to things, flowers, pages, letters, or use it as a seal on collages to smooth down rough edges and adhere the pp at once. Basically it is a glue, seal and varnish all in one. Check out the mod podge website-they have tons of ideas, how-tos etc
Mod Podge is a waterbased sealer, glue and finish for paper.
When you see paper stuck to decorative boxes or wood frames etc....that is usually Mod Podge.
It comes in matte or satin finish. You usually put a layer on the paper, stick down the other paper and then "paint" more Mod Podge on top.
I don't use it just as a glue....I use it for sticking tissue paper or filter paper die cut shapes to my layouts....like the flowers on the LO below. 2010 By Kiyawinn
Yes, the difference is that Mod Podge is a lot thinner consistency...sort of like a thin white glue...
Multi mediums are like Gesso...much thicker and will dry thick if you want a 3D effect..
I use both but for different things. I use the Mod Podge as I've mentioned to stick down tissue paper etc.. to my pages. I use Gesso/multi medium with stencils to create embellishments that are raised off the page....
