I am in the midst of creating a new product. Sorry can't spill any beans as I am purely testing. My plan is to use my designs of course, and to see if I could print them out on my paper, and Mod Podge them onto a wooden surface. I had an MDF style blank coaster here for testing, and thought I'd put one of my newest designs (which eventually be a cushion & other things), on it to see what happened. I was a bit nervous with excitement, and in fear hoping it wouldn't be a flop!
Ready to go...brushes a plenty, as I wasn't sure which to use, a coaster, my design, a mat to work on & the star of the show...."Mod Podge".
I watched a you tube clip so I could be very sure what to do. When I watched it I had that, "is that all" moment. It was so simple actually, I don't know why I thought it would be harder. I coated to coaster, applied my image, pushed out any bubbles with a ruler, & flipped it over to cut any over hang. Done!
I let it dry for 15 mins, just like the you tube experts suggested, painted another coat over the top, making sure all edges were covered sufficiently, and I was done. I let it dry for a couple of hours and I couldn't believe just how hard, and sealed it was. It dried very clearly. My main criticism to myself, would be I will invest in the foam brush they suggested, as my brushed left some brush stroke lines. I am note sure if that's "OK", but I would like to eliminate some.
Have a beautiful Tuesday.
