    Just Like "Modge Podge Glaze"

    Mix 3 parts white glue (elmer's or any cheap brand) to 1 part water.
    Add more or less water to get the desired texture and thickness.
    Add 2 Tbsp. varnish, for shine. Put into container with screw on lid.


    Just Like "Modge Podge"

    1/4 c. sugar
    1/4 c. non-self rising flour
    1/2 tsp. powdered alum
    1 3/4 c. water
    1/4 tsp. oil of cinnamon

    In medium size pan, mix together sugar, flour and alum.
    Gradually add 1 cup water, stirring vigorously to break up lumps.
    Boil until clear and smooth, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
    Add remaining water and oil. Stir until thoroughly mixed. Put into container with screw on lid.

    Hey Jackpot....no problem! I pulled an "all-nighter" myself!! & I'm having a little trouble even typing this right now. ha ha.


    Havekids,lostmind....Here is a little info about MP, I do alot of decoupage with it, but there are many uses out there. If you have any more questions- please let me know.


    MODGE PODGE is a thick glue/sealant and finish that can be used on all types of surfaces (i.e. paper, fabric, wood, terra cotta, plaster, glass, tin, plastics)

    Examples of uses include:

    1) Puzzle Saver- Place 2-3 sheets of newspaper under a finished puzzle. Using a foam brush, apply MP evenly over the entire puzzle (be sure to cover all cracks) Let dry. For added strength, apply additional coats to front and back of puzzle and allow several days for it to fully dry then you can apply a thin coat of MPG.

    2) Decoupage- First, cut out pix, or designs from paper or fabric (for example, use the front of old greeting cards or special wrapping paper or even use printed clip-art graphics off the web etc..) Apply a moderate coat of MP to a small area of the base surface (the base can be ANYthing you'd like to cover or decorate such as flower pots, waste baskets, cans, boxes, notebooks, plaster objects, etc..) Place the cut-outs onto the base. Work quickly to carefully smooth out any air bubbles-the MP get thick and begins to dry immed. (have several very damp washcloths close by so you can wipe off any excess from your hands quickly) Continue to place the cut-outs onto the entire surface of the base until it is completely covered. I use a medium sized, good quality paint brush to apply small amounts of slightly watered down MP to the edges of my cut-outs to seal the pieces down as I go. Then I apply a THIN, EVEN, coat of MP (using the sponge brush) over the entire surface, and allow it to dry. Apply at least 1-2 more thin, even coats to the surface to create a smooth seal, allow to dry for several days. You can then apply a thin coat of the MPG.
