How to Apply Glitter Using Mod Podge
Applying glitter to a project with Mod Podge is a fun and easy way to add sparkle and shine to your DIY projects. Mod Podge is a popular brand of water-based, all-in-one sealer, glue, and finish that is widely used in crafting. Here are the step-by-step instructions for applying glitter to your project with Mod Podge:
Materials you will need:
- Mod Podge (matte or gloss finish)
- A brush (foam or bristle)
- A disposable plate or container
- A project to add glitter to (such as a picture frame, vase, or jewelry box)
Step 1: Prepare your project
Make sure your project is clean and free of any dust or debris. If necessary, wipe it down with a damp cloth and let it dry completely before you start.
Step 2: Pour glitter onto a plate or container
Pour a small amount of glitter onto a disposable plate or container. You can use one color of glitter or mix different colors together to create a custom blend.
Step 3: Apply Mod Podge
Using a brush, apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to the area where you want to add glitter. Make sure to cover the entire surface evenly.
Step 4: Sprinkle glitter over Mod Podge
While the Mod Podge is still wet, sprinkle glitter over the area you just covered. Make sure to cover the entire area with glitter, shaking off any excess.
Step 5: Let the glitter dry
Let the glitter dry completely. This should take about 20-30 minutes.
Step 6: Seal the glitter with Mod Podge
Once the glitter is dry, apply another layer of Mod Podge over the glitter to seal it in place. This will prevent the glitter from flaking off.
Step 7: Let it dry
Allow the Mod Podge to dry completely before handling your project. This should take about an hour or two.
And there you have it! You've successfully added glitter to your project with Mod Podge. Have fun with your new sparkly creation!
