Product Highlight: Mod Podge!

Hello Everyone!

This is Manu here, bringing you the last post of this month!! The month of Love!!! I hope that you must have had enjoyed the love theme projects showcased this month along with some nice tips and techniques on various products all of which are available at your very own Lulupu Store

I'll be showcasing another fabulous product from Plaid, Mod Podge!! Mod Podge is acid-free and is useful for collages and decoupage as it can be used both to glue something down and as a protective layer over it (instead of varnish). It is available in a lot of variants like gloss, satin, matte, sparkle, outdoors etc. Lulupu has almost all the variants of Mod Podge.

I tried out using 2 variants. Mod Podge Satin Finish and Mod Podge Dimensional Magic and loved them both. 

Here's what I did with the Satin finish, I decoupaged a three drawer Chester. The Mod Podge Satin was used to stuck the paper papers to the Chester and then once it dries out a nice generous layer of Mod Podge was applied to the pattern paper to give a protective layer! 



 I have always loved doing decoupage for the fact that Mod Podge is so versatile. There are many variants and it's fun to try them all out.





In addition to the Mod Podge Satin, I also made some fun things with Mod Podge Dimensional Magic. Now, I love this one because the possibilities with this variant is endless. It creates an epoxy like finish on the surface that makes it three dimensional to look at. 

Here are some Fridge Magnets made using the Dimensional magic. Now do tell me that this is one cool thing to make!!!


I had initially thought about keeping them very simple with just keeping the text to bare minimum of Live, Laugh, Smile, but then one look at that wonderful MFT Love Story stamp, all my plans went bonkers and I grabbed this pretty stamp set to put in some lovely lovey dovey text!! 



Here are some snapshots of all the four magnets, they are now happily stuck up to my Fridge!!! 


After sticking the stamped bubble pattern paper to a chipboard, with Mod Podge Satin, I let it sit dry and then gave a lavish coat of the Mod Podge Dimensional Magic to get that 3D look. I love love love them!!

I hope you go out and try out this fun product from Plaid and do not forget to share your lovely creations with us. Ohh, also do remember to link up your entries for the Feb challenge 'You are Sweets' here

Hugs!
