How long does it take my Mod Podge project to cure?
With a medium coat of Mod Podge, the project should cure in about 2 to 3 weeks. Allow for longer curing times if applying more or thicker coats.
How many coats of any decoupage finish should I apply?
The amount of top coats of any decoupage finish is a personal choice. If your project is decorative only, you can apply one to two coats of finish. Should your project be used other than decorative only, we suggest a third application. Please note that you should allow 2 hours drying time between applications of decoupage finish.
How many coats of Mod Podge should I use?
You can use two or more coats depending on the type of affect you are trying to achieve. If you want a soft smooth surface with no ridges, apply at least 5 to 6 coats.

My Mod Podge surface is still sticky after it dries. What do I do?
Hard Coat Mod Podge dries clear with a non-tacky surface. If using Gloss, Matte or Satin Mod Podge apply a clear acrylic sealer to the surface after it has cured 4 weeks.
What are the instructions for putting my decoupage project in the dishwasher?
After air curing for the full 21 days, your decoupage project is top-shelf dishwasher safe with regular detergent on regular cycle.
When washing your decoupage project in the dishwasher, your decoupage layer will absorb a little water and create a milky look. Your project will be a little tender at this point, so be careful when handling. But do not be alarmed it will fully dry to its original state.
What do I do if my dried Mod Podge project turns cloudy?
If your Mod Podge project is cloudy, it means that there is moisture present. Just let project continue to dry and it will look clear again.
