How to Decoupage using Mod Podge

This simple technique is on the crafter's "need to know" list! Bonnie teaches us about Mod Podge decoupage, how to apply it and some of her tips & tricks. Mod Podge Rocks is a basic easy-to-use product used as glue and sealer.

Bonnie shares...
"You always want to apply the Mod Podge first to the back of your paper. That starts conditioning the paper and gets it ready so it doesn't wrinkle so much when I put it on my project. Then apply a coat of Mod Podge on your project. Apply a nice even coat. It doesn't need to be heavy but you want enough that your paper will stick on it. Once you have it on both the paper and the project, you glue them together. Smooth out the paper - I like to work with a piece of paper towel or rag. It just seems to not rough up the paper as much as when I use my fingers. 

You want to give your project a little bit of time to dry before you seal it. If it's cold to the touch, that means it's still wet. 

To seal it, just apply a nice even coat of Mod Podge to the top. That's going to seal the paper so it doesn't fade and get torn up. It will dry clear so you don't have to worry about your brush strokes. Those will disappear when the Mod Podge dries."  

Here are a few projects that were done using Mod Podge Rocks.
