    Mod Modge comes in both a matte and a glossy finish it is formulated to give nice results.....sometimes mixing glue and water together... just makes a mess.

    its kind of matte, but has a little sheen to it. That might depend on how much glue you use, but mine always comes out with sort of a satin finish.

    my last project with Elmers and water was this squash. I applied the Elmers' both under and over the fern and flower blossom. It has no finish.

    The commercial modgepodge comes in multiple sheens Satin, matte gloss and sparkle.
    The diy elmers is more of a clear finish sealer.
    I tend to prefer to buy one of the commercial decoupage medium for a planned professional lasting finish.
