What is Mod Podge for?
Mod Podge is used to decoupage, which is a fancy French word meaning “to cut out.” Decoupage is also a craft category similar to knitting, stamping, or scrapbooking.
Basically, decoupage involves cutting out shapes from a material such as paper or fabric, and then sticking them to a surface. Mod Podge is being used to glue down the shape to the surface. Once it dries, you’ll add a few more layers of Mod Podge as your finish in your craft project.
Mod Podge works on paper, fabric, wood, ceramic, tin, terra cotta and some plastics. Since it’s suitable for a variety of surfaces, you can make so many things using Mod Podge such as jewellery, home decor like wall art, faux stained glass, to mention a few.
