Top tips for using Hall’s So Modge More modge podge at home
Tip 1: Apply the modge podge with a foam brush or flat paintbrush, but for a super smooth application, we recommend you use a piece of firm foam or a foam brush. The bristles of a flat brush can sometimes leave brush marks in your application while a foam brush allows for greater control over the quantity of modge podge you are applying in one go.
Tip 2: Whilst it might feel dry-to-the-touch in an hour or so, the best thing to do with your modge podge project, is leave it to dry fully overnight.
Tip 3: When using modge podge as a sealant and finish, be sure to cover the entire surface of your chosen project using thin, even strokes. Do not apply the podge thickly, instead rather add multiple coats.
Tip 4. Leave approximately an hour’s drying time in-between coats, and if you see any brush strokes you are unhappy with once each layer is dry, sand them out using a super-fine sandpaper, and wipe down with a duster afterwards. Add a final topcoat over your sanded layer, and leave for 24 hours to dry.
