What is this modge podge business? Every second pinterest craft tutorial tells you to get your modge podge at the ready, maybe it’s an American thing but we hadn’t heard of it until recently  until we became obsessed with Pinterest.

Holly happened across two pots at a car boot sale and I finally used it recently. Basically it’s a PVA type glue that drys non-sticky with a shiny finish, you can use it as both glue and a varnish (it’s like a top and base coat nail polish!).DSC_0766-002DSC_0764-001For a set of little canvases I used MP to stick on a flower decoupage (canvas painted first obvs), painted on the text, then two layers of Modge Podge over the top. It dries much faster than most liquids glue, and I really like the look of the finish. Conclusion: Modge Podge is well worthy of the pinterest love, looking forward to the next project.

  1. Mod Podge is awesome. My decoupage projects would not be the same without it.. Have you tried different finishes? I use the paper one most often, but the gloss is good too. I want to get a shimmery one for special occasions. It’s available at Spotlight here in NZ.

    • We both only have the furniture finish (?!) but it still gives a nice matt finish, makes things look so good! Glad you’re a mod podge fan too Ness, it’s going to change the world! xR
