    Hi Andrea, it can be done A waterbased sealer, glue and finish. Non-toxic, non-flammable. Use this crafting favorite to decoupage almost anything on wood, glass, terra cotta, metal, canvas and more, then seal with a top coat of Mod Podge. Projects dry to a protective matte, satin or gloss finish.

      Thanks! I have used it on almost everything but metal and terracotta surfaces so was hesitating! In case I might inspire other DIYer's I am planning to recycle an old cookie sheet into a memorial plaque for a relative.

    Yes! I used Mod Podge and fabric on metal file cabinet drawers, and it worked beautifully.

    I used it on my mail box that sits at the road and is exposed to weather. I sealed it w a satin finish. The fabric faded after 15 years.

      Hi Did you seal it with Modge Podge or another product? That is amazing that the fabric didn't fade for 15 years!

    Yes, it works great! It's not water proof though just as a heads up.

    I've not used it on metal, but have on glass. Because neither of these are porous, you may want to scratch up the surface lightly so the adhesive will have more 'grip' areas. I'd suggest sealing over the fabric once it thoroughly dries just as backup.

    That would be good to see......

    I used a satin spray and did multiple coats of it. I sponge painted the mail box w acrylic paint and sealed it then put the fabric on. The paint didn't fade either.

    No, but I know Mod Podge can do that. They even have special varieties just for fabric!

    Yes, and another thing . . . it’s fun! The main thing if you are going to have your completed project outdoors is to apply a sealant. If your project is metal, use the sealant specifically for metal. If wood, a polyurethane is fine. Wishing you success!
