Are you curious about the Mod Podge formulas? Do you want to learn what each one does, how to use them, and get sample crafts? You'll want to bookmark this amazing post!

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,

I have these two Vintage hard plastic school chairs I got from Grandparents house after they passed. I was going to just paint them but then I got to thinking how cute they would be with a modge podge decor on the seat and back. I'm just having a hard time figuring out the right modge to use. Also do use think I should do a resin over the project when finished? Thankyou in advance for your help!

Hi Katie! I would use Hard Coat and then yes - a clear poly or Engine Enamel spray over the top when done! Good luck.

Thanks so much for all your hard work and research. You must have heard all of us screaming abt too many products (great and wonderful) with too much info to read. You’ve broken the info down that makes it so much easier to pick one. Thanks again!!

To date, I have done at least 15 mod podge image transfers to wood in a 2 month time frame. I get better & more creative with time & experience. Here's my issue... no matter how gentle I am in rubbing off the pulp, I always manage to rub off some of the actual image on the wood. More often than not, I actually appreciate the vintage look & am ok with it. Most times though, I end up rubbing off more image than I want. What am I doing wrong? PLEASE,PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Hi Evelyn! My advice to you would be to try a bit of a thicker layer of photo transfer on the image. Do a few samples with various thicknesses of medium and see what works for you. I feel like it being so thin is probably the problem.
