    • Thank you! Mod Podge basically has the consistency of white glue, but holds things together better and is applicable to a wider variety of surfaces. I apply it to surfaces with a sponge brush or paintbrush. It looks white when you apply it but dries clearly.

      • Interesting. Is it the sort of thing that could be used with acrylic paints on canvas? I guess it might be good to adhese things like photos or collage pieces to a canvas. Would that be right?

      • Yes, you can use it to protect paint on canvas, and you can use it to make collages with photos and magazine paper. I am working on a piece with combined paint and collage and will post it shortly. It is waterproof as well, so you can make coasters by adhering paper onto cork however you please. Fabric also sticks well when using Mod Podge!

      • Wow! That sounds very useful! Hmm…I’ve seen different types of mod podge around. What would you recommend? I’m interested in using it on canvas with acrylics. Thanks 🙂 How are you today?

      • I would recommend the regular “Matte” kind with the yellow label. They have several sizes depending on how often you will use it. If you want your pieces to have a Polaroid-like tinge to them, the antique mod podge is also good. If you want gloss, the glossy one with the green level is good, and there is an outdoor type as well for decorative stones and such. When I make coasters though, I use the mod podge to adhere the paper onto the tile and apply several protective coats. That way, when I apply a coat of resin (because mod podge does not make coasters heat-resistant), the resin itself doesn’t drench the design I made on the coaster.
