FAQs

Can I use magazine, gift wrap or book pages with Mod Podge?
Yes, however you need to check to make sure that the ink will not smear. Test a small piece before starting your Mod Podge project. You can also add additional protection, by spraying the front and back of these papers with an acrylic sealer such as Mod Podge Clear Acrylic Spray, and let dry. Be sure to test the sealer first on the paper you want to use before continuing with Mod Podge.
Can I use photographs with Mod Podge?
We do not recommend using original photographs. Have a color copy made with a dry toner copier before applying Mod Podge.
Can my Mod Podge-coated surface be washed?
No, just lightly wipe Mod Podge projects with a dampened, lint-free rag.
Do I need to seal my ink-jet printouts before applying Mod Podge?
Yes, you will need to seal your ink-jet print with a matte acrylic sealer such as Mod Podge Acrylic Sealer, before using Mod Podge. Spray a very light coat, let dry and spray again.
How can I achieve a high shine finish on my decoupage project?
If you would like to achieve a high shine finish, complete your decoupage project in the traditional way, applying two top coats of decoupage finish to the completed design. Wait one week for the finish to cure, then spray the project with Mod Podge Acrylic Spray Gloss Sealer.
How can I achieve the smooth satin look of traditional decoupage?
After applying at least 6 coats of Royal Coat Decoupage Finish to your project (allowing 20 minutes drying time between coats), follow these instructions:
  1. Wet #400 sandpaper with water and a drop of dish soap and sand the finish lightly until flat and smooth. Wipe dry.
  2. Polish the project with #0000 steel wool.
  3. For an even glossier finish, dip the steel wool into a liquid paste of linseed oil and pumice. Gently polish the surface until smooth.
How can I get an antiqued decoupage look?
Royal Coat ® Antique Decoupage Finish adds a mellow, antique look to decoupaged surfaces. Use it to apply cutouts to your surface and then brush on two light coats over the entire surface. Each coat will slightly deepen the color of the finished piece and create an aged patina.
To get the exact degree of antiquing you desire apply FolkArt ® Antiquing Medium to the entire project after Royal Coat ® Decoupage Finish is dry. Apply Antiquing Medium with a brush or soft sponge. Wipe off as much or as little as you wish with a soft cloth or paper towel for the desired effect. Allow to dry. Then apply two final coats of Royal Coat.
How do I decoupage with napkins or tissue paper?
First check to see if the napkin is 2 ply. If so, separate and lay aside. Brush Mod Podge directly on the your surface. Carefully place the printed napkin on the surface and lightly blot down with a dampened sponge. Start blotting in the center and work to the edge. Once it is in place, let dry. After about 30 minutes lightly apply a top coat of Mod Podge.
How do I apply paper inside glass or acrylic?
  1. Apply a coat of Mod Podge® to the inside of the form and allow to dry slightly. Place the Napkin design where desired and gently rub it flat with your thumb.
  2. Cover the image with a second very thin coat of Mod Podge®, beginning in the center and brushing out. Allow to dry thoroughly.
  3. Add special sponging or spouncing effects, as desired, around the design and let dry.
  4. Paint the whole inside with a light color of FolkArt® Acrylic Colors. If you want to use a darker color inside, first paint around the Napkin design with a light color, let dry and then add the darker color.
How do I apply paper napkins to surfaces?
  1. Cut the design out of the napkin and separate the layers; you want to use only the top layer of the napkin.
     
  2. Apply a coat of Mod Podge in your favorite formula to the surface area where the Napkin will be applied. Let dry slightly – until it’s slightly sticky – then place the Napkin on the surface and press it down gently with your fingertips. The Napkin should not become wet. (If it does, you applied too much Mod Podge; apply a lighter coat next time.) Let dry.
     
  3. To finish, apply a second coat of Mod Podge® and apply it beginning in the middle and gently brushing out to the edges.
     
  4. Alternately, you may apply Mod Podge® to the area and let it dry completely (to speed up drying, you may use a hairdryer set on low). Then place the Napkin onto the surface in the desired position. Cover the Napkin with a piece of parchment paper and iron (on the cotton setting) to adhere the Napkin to the surface. Allow the parchment paper to cool and then remove. The Mod Podge® will melt and adhere the image to the surface. The advantage of this technique is that you can move the image until you iron it down. Also, the Napkin will not tear or show bubbles, and it will be completely flat like the surface it is on. Again, finish with a coat of Mod Podge® on top.
