Q:
A:
Some papers such as gift wrap and magazine cutouts will warp and bubble after applying Mod Podge. To minimize the warping, spray the front and back of these papers with an acrylic sealer such as Mod Podge Acrylic Sealer, and let dry. Be sure to test the sealer first on the paper you want to use before continuing with the project. Apply Mod Podge to the back of the paper or to the project surface and press the paper firmly to the surface, let dry completely. more...
 
Q:
A:
  1. Cut the design out of the Napkin and separate the layers.; you want to use only the top layer of the Napkin.

  2. Using the Glue Brush, apply a coat of Mod Podge® Gloss, Matte or Sparkle Finish to the surface area where the Napkin will be applied. Let dry slightly – until it’s slightly sticky – then place the Napkin on the surface and press it down gently with your fingertips. The Napkin should not become wet. (If it does, you applied too much Mod Podge; apply a lighter coat next time.) Let dry.

  3. To finish, apply a second coat of Mod Podge® and apply it beginning in the middle and gently brushing out to the edges.

  4. Alternately, you may apply Mod Podge® to the area and let it dry completely (to speed up drying, you may use a hairdryer set on low). Then place the Napkin onto the surface in the desired position. Cover the Napkin with a piece of parchment paper and iron (on the cotton setting) to adhere the Napkin to the surface. Allow the parchment paper to cool and then remove. The Mod Podge® will melt and adhere the image to the surface. The advantage of this technique is that you can move the image until you iron it down. Also, the Napkin will not tear or show bubbles, and it will be completely flat like the surface it is on. Again, finish with a coat of Mod Podge® on top.
 
Q:
A:
Yes, however you need to check to make sure that the ink will not smear. Test a small piece before starting your Mod Podge project. You can also add additional protection, by spraying the front and back of these papers with an acrylic sealer such as Mod Podge Clear Acrylic Spray, and let dry. Be sure to test the sealer first on the paper you want to use before continuing with Mod Podge.
 
Q:
A:
You must pre-wash, dry and iron the fabric. DO NOT use fabric softener. If using a t-shirt or a thin fabric, place a piece of wax paper inside directly under where you will be decoupaging your design.
