Mod Podge is a versatile craft tool that can transform everyday items into pieces of art using various materials, such as glass. This easy guide teaches you how to apply Mod Podge on glass using the right technique.
1. Gather your supplies
- A glass object, such as a vase
- Mod Podge
- Disposable container for the Mod Podge
- Paper or tissue paper with a beautiful design
- Embellishments (optional)
2. Prepare your glass object
Start by dividing your glass object into small sections; Mod Podge dries quite fast, so it’s best to work in small areas at a time. Pour a bit of Mod Podge into your disposable container and paint a thin layer onto one section of the glass.
3. Apply the paper
After coating a section with Mod Podge, press a piece of paper onto the wet section. Smooth it out using hard, flat object like a credit card to ensure it adheres correctly and to remove any air bubbles or wrinkles. If you missed a spot, simply apply more Mod Podge and smooth the paper down.
4. Layer your design
Consider layering the paper to create a more intricate design and to prevent the glass from showing. For example, you can overlap different patterns or colors to create a rich, textured look in boho style. Don’t worry about making it perfect since part of the charm of Mod Podge projects is their handcrafted, unique appeal.
5. Continue the process
Keep applying Mod Podge and sticking paper on one section at a time until you cover everything. Once you finish, allow the glass object to dry fully.
6. Add embellishments (optional)
You can add more elements to decorate your glass item further. For example, use twine, burlap flowers, beads, ribbons, or plastic jewelry.
