Discover the Possibilities of Mod Podge!
A bland object you want to spruce up (nearly any surface works)
Mod Podge (referred to below as MP)
Top Layer such as fabric, tissue paper, scrapbook paper, etc.
Brush or sponge
Well ventilated work area
A little creativity
Tip: Remember to work in a well ventilated area!
Find something that needs a face lift. It can be made of wood, glass, card board, particle board, metal... well nearly anything.
Apply the MP generously to the object as well as your top layer material, then glue them together.
Tip: Don't apply the MP to a huge area that will dry before you're able to get it covered. You want to have your top layer material applied before the MP starts drying.
Smooth out any air bubbles.
Apply some more MP on top of your top layer material.
Optional: For a textured look, apply MP thickly and imitate artist's brush strokes or stippling with sponge.
If you have more area to cover, then continue to work in sections until it's complete.
Allow the MP to dry about 15-20 minutes.
