Mod Podge Amy

My name is Amy Anderson and I’m a crafting and Mod Podge (and decoupage) expert. I’m a two time craft book author and product line maker. I have been a creator for over forty years.

I’ve been creative since I was little. I always had to take art classes, and I remember being the youngest person by far at sewing camp when I was 10. I hated sewing camp.

At the time, I didn’t appreciate the gift that my parents were giving me – but these days I am very thankful. No only do I have a lot of crafty skills, but now I’m blogging about crafting as my full-time job. And it’s the best job ever.

I started Mod Podge Rocks in 2008 because I wanted a place that I could share learning to decoupage with the world.

It all began because I love to craft, and I liked the Mod Podge label. Pink and orange is my jam. Plus I’ve worked at a craft supply manufacturer . . . it all just fit.

My other blogs are DIY Candy and I Love Origami.

You can see my professional resume here. By trade, I am a professional marketer with an MBA. Here are 10 things other about me that you should know.

  1. I live in the Portland, Oregon area. I’ve lived all over the country but west is best for me.
  2. I’m a published author and I’ve written two books.
  3. I love crafting, but I also love cars, frozen yogurt, and outdoor activities.
  4. I have an undergrad degree in Forestry, an MBA in Business and have had 10 jobs since I graduated from college (commitment issues anyone?)
  5. The color orange is my favorite. Blue is a close second. I love bright colors.
  6. My favorite movie of all time is Star Wars.
  7. I constantly battle a sugar and coffee addiction – I love candy and lattes.
  8. I have a fear of flying but I do it anyway.
  9. The most appealing thing in the world is a good sense of humor.
  10. I seem to work best when things are chaotic and I have a ton to do.

Take a peek at some of my select appearances on the internet and in print – these aren’t all of them, but are great examples.

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!
