I've used Mod Podge and Liquitex gel medium and thought this was going to be the same so what's all the hooplah about, ...BUT when I used this multi-medium, it was smooth and creamy going on, and its smooth when it drys and doesn't leave my art journal pages all thick and stiff.
When I try to write over the liquitex gel medium it was rough and my pens would catch and leave marks, but not with this, this is so smooth and flexible. It's the best, I absolutely love this stuff!!
This product is a great addition to anyone who needs extra protection on your scrapbook pages, cards, fussy cut elements etc. Applied with brush ,fingers or sponge this product goes on smoothly and quickly dries. It does add a layer of protection to any project that would get lots of use, as in mini albums, cards or whatnot. Matte dries without a glaring gloss but does give a rather beautiful sheen. It really does add a little extra special touch to all those beautiful paper wonders.
I wanted to try this product because I have seen several projects done using it. It is very smooth and since a little goes a long way this jar will probably last me a long time. It dries to a clear, matte finish and is not sticky when dry. I'm using it to reinforce some small paper embellishments and score lines on card stock. I've read it can also be used as a glue but I haven't tried that application yet.
I bought this after view video of Tim Holtz's Configurations. It's the perfect adhesive. Blends out smooth with a brush, the paper doesn't ripple. It leaves a beautiful and professional finished product. Scrapbook.com is the only place I can find it and well worth the ordering to have in my stash!! Perfection!
I wanted to try a matte medium instead of always using "Modge Podge" and this was on sale, so I thought why not? It works well and even better than Modge Podge as I can use my gel pens and black microns over the medium unlike with Modge Podge.
