I really want a Mod Podge car! This cool car looks like it’s covered in fabric and decoupage medium. Would you ever do this to car?
For those who don’t know, Jan Wetstone, the original creator of Mod Podge in 1967, decoupaged a car with sheets back in the day. She Mod Podged on a Volkswagen Beetle, just like the Gypsy Purple car!
During the Mod Podge 45th anniversary in 2012, I got a chance to speak with Jan and ask her about the car. I was so curious how it lasted and she said her son drove it for many years!
I just thought that was so cool – and here’s a picture of the car that Jan did with the sheets:
Someday I’m going to own a car like this. It may not be a Beetle, but I’m going to purchase something fun on the cheap and then add vintage sheets or fabric.
And that’s the outside.
I’ve been asked several times about Mod Podging the inside of a car. To be honest – I just don’t recommend it, even though I know people do it and they do it successfully. The problem is that a lot of the materials inside a car aren’t meant to work with acrylic mediums.
They are typically plastic, coated wood, or some other resin material where decoupage medium will just peel off. If you can get it to work and don’t mind it potentially not working, then go for it. And please post your success stories below!
I just can’t personally recommend it because every car is essentially different. BUT, if you try it – #respect.
Now, the biggest thing I’ve ever Mod Podged is a bookcase. So I ask you: what is the largest item you’ve ever Mod Podged? And would you drive a Mod Podge car??
