30 Days of Gratitude: Day 25

If I could only have one tool to make my art, that would be Mod Podge.  Like the label says, “It’s a sealer!  It’s a glue!  It’s a finish!”  Gloppy or thin, matte finish or glossy, it’s great for adhering delicate vintage papers or clunky metal fixings.

I know there’s probably better products out there, but Mod Podge is affordable for me, and I can get it at Wal-Mart here in town.  But if I happen to have extra gas money, I can also take a pilgrimage to Hobby Lobby a half hour away and worship at the art supply Mecca there.  Mod Podge is everywhere, as is right and proper.

Since I’m starting my next big project today, tentatively titled Evil Clowns, I can’t wait to unscrew the lid, peel off that dried ring around the lip, and dig in.

    I have not worked with Modge Podge before, but I know it’s great stuff. Next time I make a collage I will use it.

    I too love Mod Podge! This is a great thing to be thankful for. I’m thankful for this series of posts that reminds me to practice gratitude–for all things great and small–even the sticky stuff that allows better things to be built————–

    That clown picture is very disturbing. Are you positive this is a healthy direction to travel? If so, be sure to leave a trail of breadcrumbs so you can find your way back.

      Clowns are the creepiest thing I can imagine. I’ve been wanting to delve into that ooginess for awhile and see what I can come up with. It’s so exciting!!
