What is Mod Podge
Mod Podge is a sealer/adhesive you paint on to your projects. It's kind of like a liquid glue with a few more uses. One of the most popular or common uses of Mod Podge is creating decoupage projects. This is a technique of layering paper or fabric to create pretty art layers. Mod Podge comes in a variety of finishes from outdoor to high gloss. There's also a fun glow in the dark version.

About Mod Podge
Decoupage was all the rage in the 1960’s, but it was a tedious and messy process involving multiple layers of varnish and sanding. All that changed in 1967 when an Atlanta-based interior designer and inventor named Jan Wetstone created a fast and easy alternative. She named her product Mod Podge, a shortened form of “modern decoupage.” Over the past 50 years, Mod Podge has expanded from the original Matte and Gloss formulas and is now available in 23 unique finishes and a full selection of tools and accessories.
