The inventor of Mod Podge®, Jan Wetstone, first developed Mod Podge® in the 1960s in her garage. The name of this now-famous mixture came from the term "Modern Decoupage." She tested it on all kinds of surfaces; she even decoupaged a Volkswagen Beetle using bed sheets!
Mod Podge® has come a long way since the 1960s. It's become a favorite of crafters everywhere, including Martha Stewart and Rosie O'Donnell! Both women love to decoupage, and have featured Mod Podge® on their shows.
It's a Glue!
Mod Podge® works great as a glue. This waterbased formula dries clear and holds tight. It will adhere paper, fabric and other porous materials. Mod Podge® is non-toxic and cleans up with just soap and water, so it's great for kids!
It's a Sealer!
Whether you're decorating a candle, wooden box or picture frame, Mod Podge® will do the trick! It protects acrylic paints, stains, fabric, and more. And of course, it's also excellent for decoupage.
It's a Finish!
Rex Art offers this fast-drying formula in two finishes. Gloss finish dries to a high-gloss shine; Matte finish creates a more muted look. Don't forget to sand between coats for an ultra-smooth finish.
