      Great projects! Thanks for sharing! I live in the UK and can’t find a mod podge brayer online. Can I get a regular brayer instead? If so what size is best?

    Thanks for the list Amy!!!!

    I have only used Mod Podge a few times but I can’t never seem to get it right. Guess I’ll have to try again. :)

    I have a Modge Podge question-
    Im getting married next year- Labor Day weekend 2013-so I have time but
    We traveled for 4 yrs back & forth before I relocated to Tx & my wedding is in Boston-
    soooooo I said that to say- I saved TONS of our plane tickets saved !!initially it was for nostalgic, sentimental reason-
    THEN …….I went to a wedding & saw a hat box decorated with postcards from all the couples travels -which inspired me-
    To modge podge all of our plane tickets on to the a large hat box (which I have) BUT
    I want to do it right- its my 1st time Modge Podging & I dont want to make a mess- to you have a tutorial or any advice, tips etc???

    I’d appreciate it soo much

    I have a question- I’m planning to mod podge monograms/scrapbook paper on coffee cups to give as gifts. Obviously, coffee cups undergo a lot of moisture- would you recommend using Outdoor Mod Podge? And then sealing with a spray/polycrilic. I’d encourage the recipients to hand wash only with soap and water rather than using the dishwasher.

      Hi there! Yes I do recommend that, but Outdoor Mod Podge is very thick so you’ll probably have to stick your brush in water and make sure it’s wet rather than Mod Podging with a dry brush. You should seal with a brush-on, outdoor spray. And definitely no dishwasher! 😀

    I’ve never Mod Podged and have seen lots of crafts with it. I love crafts and will give this a try. Thank you!

    Hello! My email isn’t in all caps btw haha. I have been psyched to use my new mode podge but I’m not sure if I got the right kind for the crafts i would like to try. I got the mode podge photo transfer medium. Can I still just use that kind to, for ex., glue down paper to a frame? Or what I’ve really been excited to do, make my own phone case? You just mode podge paper down on the pkain plastic case but I’m not sure if I can use this specific kind. Thanks!

    How do I stop the Mod Podge from being tacky? I covered a box & now it keeps sticking closed.
