I have never worked with Mod Podge, so what kind of a brush should I use to apply it? I know, dumb question, but I am new to the game!
Nothing is a dumb question.I used a sponge brush on my project as it helps spread the glue around.
@Sharon Seiber welcome
Think of mod podge as clear acrylic paint. So you can literally use anything depending on what type of strokes you want in it. If you want a painting effect use paint brushes. You can use any type of some as well. For a smoother finish use a regular chiselled sponge brush. For more texture apply in thicker layers, let dry, then apply more layers and repeat until desired effect is accomplished. BTW you can use Elmer's glue instead of mod podge as well! Whichever way you go test it out first to make sure you have the right look. Hope this helps! 😊
@Stephanie Johnson Thank you!
Sorry for they typo.... You can use any type of sponge* as well.
@Stephanie Johnson Thanks!
Sponge brushes work great for a smooth texture. If you want more texutre for your craft, try using a brush. I agree with Stephanie that regular Elmer's school glue works great too as it dries clear and is less expensive!
Just about any kind of brush will work. Just be sure to clean it up with soap and water when you are done.
@Linda Thank you!
sponge brush gives a smoother application
@Mary Proffitt Thanks!
I've always used a sponge brush.
I appreciate the answers, especially about the Elmer's glue. I am covering a stand in my son's bathroom with a vinyl paper, so any other suggestions about application is always helpful for a newbie!
Ssponge/foam applicators work the best, take your time and you will have streak-free mod podge
@Carol Walters Thank you!
Here's a link to an "How To".
@LD Thanks so much, Linda, for the url.
All these wonderful women taking their time to help a "newbie".
I use those inexpensive foam brushes. Life is too short to have to rinse out modge podge from a brush.
@Snapoutofit I picked up a whole pack of them at the Dollar tree, so should be good to go if I can get the Christmas thingy over soon! heh heh
Hi! Not a dumb question at all. I don't use a brush at all but instead use a sponge "brush". It doesn't leave stroke marks. Hope that helps!
I went out and got a package of sponge brushes from Dollar tree, and 2 bottles of Elmers. Got the Mod Poge a couple of days ago, so hope I am good to go! heh heh Thanks everyone!
I have used all sizes and types of brushes successfully. I select each brush based on the size of the project. I even have used my good artist paint brushes. As long as you do not allow them to dry with the mod podge on it and clean them thoroughly they will be just fine. My stiffer artist brushes do a much better job when I am using material vs paper. Have fun!
I will, Diane, and thanks!
All great answers.
