Basic Mod Podge Decoupage Supplies and Tools

  • Mod Podge Matte Acrylic Spray Sealer: An easy-to-use spray that protects paint, lacquer, varnish, stain, glue, wood and other porous surfaces. The spray creates a strong, crystal clear and non-yellowing acrylic seal, and it also reduces tackiness, a common issue with decoupage projects.
  • Mod Podge Brayer and Squeegee: The brayer is used to smooth paper, fabric and other items onto a surface, providing the right amount of pressure to eliminate air bubbles and with no mess. The squeegee is used to press paper, fabric and other items into hard-to-reach corners.
  • Mod Podge Silicone Craft Mat: The silicone mat is perfect for protecting your work surface. Glue peels right off of it for easy clean-up!
  • Mod Podge Decoupage Brush Set: The short Gold Taklon bristles are ideal for ornate surfaces, and make pressing paper or fabric into creases and tight corners a breeze. These brushes are excellent for projects that require fewer visible brush strokes - optimal for high gloss and flat matte finishes.
  • Mod Podge Foam Brush Set: Great for applying Mod Podge, this foam brush set has an applicator for any size project.
