  1. Who are you? My name is Amy. I am a 44-year-old crafty gal who has lived all over the country (a lot in the Northwest) and finally ended up in the Portland, Oregon area. I was born from creative genes, so I’m carrying on the tradition. I have been knitting for 20+ years, sewing for longer and decoupaging for almost 10. I do all of these things on a daily basis, or at least as much as I can. In addition to Mod Podge, I love the color blue, dogs, reading, cold weather, funny movies, road rallies, yogurt, garden gnomes, sock monkeys, cycling, tattoos, being outdoors, buttons, snuggling, and apparently blogging. Who knew I would love it this much?
  2. Is there anything else I should know about you? I try to wear stripes and/or bright colors on a daily basis. It makes me happy. It’s the little things, people.
  3. What makes you the authority on Mod Podge? My favorite thing about this blog is that I get to bring lots of ideas and inspiration together in one place – making everyone who is featured here an authority! I started this blog because when I was trying to find decoupage inspiration, I had to go to a lot of different places to get it. I thought, “what if it could all just be in one place?” I don’t just complain – I make it happen!
  4. What is your day job? I’m a freelancer. That means that I am my own boss and I work all the time. But I love it.
  5. Will you offer me advice on my project/creative idea/love life? Yes, I’ll do my best. That I can promise you.
  6. Do you accept submissions? Heck yes! Don’t be scared. Send ’em my way. E-mail me here.
  7. I’m having a Mod Podge craft issue. Can you help me? Yes. Click here. Another place that might help is the Mod Podge Facebook group, where there are a ton of members who love to answer questions.

Hi Amy. I am trying to put a picture in the middle of my plastic pot. I painted the pot with black acrylic paint and let it dry then I put Mod Podge HardCoat and placed my picture and brushed over the picture to smooth it out at one point the black paint ran into my picture!!! I then covered the whole pot with mod podge hard coat and let it dry then I used Decoart Duraclear Matte Varnish several times. However as soon as the pot got wet the solutions ran and picture got wet. What am I doing wrong? Do I seal the paint before Mod posing? What shall I use to seal it properly?

Can you use mod podge on plexiglass? I saw a lady use a little mixed with a few drops of food dye and then paint it on a plastic ball to give it a red tint. I was wondering if it would eventually flake off? I’d like to tint a sheet of plexiglass to use in my kid’s room but wanted to make sure it would not peel off.

Hi Ruth! Unfortunately it might not work. A lot of acrylic products peel right off of plexi. I wish I could give you an exact answer, but you have to do a test with your piece of plexi, because the composition of plexi is different. Some is more clear, some is more like a resin. If you have Mod Podge, I'd try it in a corner and see. You'll know if it works if you can peel it right off when dry. Good luck!
