So quite awhile ago, I wrote a Mod Podge formula guide. I also wrote a post on learning to Mod Podge with an FAQ. While both of those posts were a labor of love, I still don’t think they were enough to quench the knowledge thirst of you serious Mod Podgers.

And I get it . . . because while those posts are actioned pack with tons of information, they don’t include a lot of detailed information on each formula.

This is because if I wrote a post and included a lengthy description with FAQs and project samples . . . . it would be WAAYY too long! So long that it would be difficult to find your formula of interest just by scrolling, and you wouldn’t want to read it.

Mod Podge Formulas

I decided to break out each into its own post – completely dedicated to EACH formula and just that formula! Instead of having to sift through information, you can learn exactly what you want about your Mod Podge formula of interest simply by clicking through the link below.

Two things:

  1. I’ll be adding a new formula each week to the linky below, until it’s complete with all formulas. So bookmark and come back if you don’t see your formula yet!
  2.  As questions are asked in the comments, I’ll be updating the posts with answers and more information. My goal is to make each post a complete reference for you,

Hello, what would be recommended for paper to fabric? The Fabric Mod Podge, Paper Matte Mod Podge, or regular Matte Mod Podge? Specifically want to use for Washi Tape so not sure if the "stickiness" on the tape would also affect anything

I'm assuming since you're using washi tape you don't want it to be washable and it's an art piece or something . . . so you can use regular Mod Podge :)

Hi! I am newly user of Mod Podge and very confused about which one to use. I am done decoupage on a table top but with napkins! I have sealed with matte lacquer but not enough protection. Idk if I should go with high protection, dishwasher safe for the waterproof character (I plan to use it as daily coffee table + I have a baby monster toddler) or even create a resin layer. I am in love with the table and don't wanna spoil it neither kill anyone 😅 please help! TIA.

Hi Lorena! It sounds like you need either a high protection lacquer or a resin! Dishwasher Safe isn't going to be any different than what you've already used. That's what I would do!
