I remember my older sister using Mod Podge to make crafts, but I never had the chance to use it. Lately, I’ve been hearing about it so much, I figured I had better find out more about this wonder product. I’ve learned that Mod Podge has been around for over 40 years and is a non-toxic, water soluble glue, sealer and finish. Amy Anderson is the queen of Mod Podge and Mod Podge Rocks is her newest book. In it she tells us that when she found Mod Podge she realized she had the Holy Grail of crafting in her hands. Mod Podge Rocks explains the six simple (but important) steps to use this medium, which dries clear and can be used on almost any surface. Mod Podge Rocks has exciting ideas to make wearables, home decor and holiday crafts. I found myself repeatedly going back to look at the awesome cowboy boots with floral fabric mod podged on to them. Love! The Pressed Leaf Pendant is such a lovely way to preserve nature, and I am excited to try this technique with all kinds of tiny objects. In looking through Mod Podge Rocks!, it quickly becomes clear that Mod Podge can be used on pretty much Everything! I was amazed at some of the things that she decoupages, like bike helmets, suitcases and pumpkins. Of course there are also the classic ideas for using Mod Podge, for instance, labels for kitchen canisters, wall plaques, photo frames and clocks. Mod Podge Rocks includes more than forty projects, so I will definitely be keeping busy, and the options sure seem limitless!

Unfortunately this did not meet my expectations. I am sorry I made this purchase, very elementary and limited. This should have been limited to an online blog.
