Popular FAQs
Altered Art is a fun and creative way to use decoupage and collage to breathe new life into old items. Some of the most popular forms of Altered Art are Altered Books and Cigar Box Purses. Altered Books are old books that have been painted, glued, stamped, embellished, cut or otherwise altered to create new pieces of art. Altered Books can be created to stay open permanently for display or can be used as creative gift boxes for gift certificates, photos and greeting cards. Cigar Box Purses are old cigar boxes that have handles and clasps added to them along with just about anything you can think of to decorate and change them into amazing new pieces of art.
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.
To preserve fruit: 1) Cut fruit into very thin slices. 2) Dry fruit with flower dry, silica gel, or Decorative Fruit Saver by Activa. Use product label instructions. Decorative Fruit Saver will insure a flexible fruit slice so that it can be fashioned into roses or other effects. 3) Seal fruit slices with Mod Podge ® and allow to dry. Mod Podge will insure a safe seal to ward off insects and, at the same time, keep slices flexible.
There are two different ways to prepare your napkin or paper for appliqué, depending on what look you wish to create:

Use small, sharp scissors for cutting out the napkin or paper designs. Cut away any inside areas you don’t want. Hold the scissors stationary while turning the napkin or paper for a clean-edge cut. Trimming is easier when you cut through all three layers of the napkin or paper. Remove the two white layers after cutting out the design.

Tearing: Tearing can be a good choice for some designs because is creates a more handmade or natural look. It’s perfect for children and others who cannot or do not want to cut out the designs. For best results, cut all three layers and then separate.
