  • Waterproofing decoupage?

    My daughter wants to decoupage dried, pressed flowers on to vases. She did a prototype that turned out quite nice but we are concerned about how well it will hold up in use and cleaning. Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Mod podge is pretty good for waterproofing but maybe she could try an acrylic medium, like Liquitex Acrylic Mediums. Before you use anything, test it first.

      I would suggest using Mod-Podge for the initial coating, followed by several coats of polyurethane varnish -- High gloss is 'more' waterproof and durable than satin finish, though.
      There ain't no such thing as 'one true way', and the way you find is only good for you, not anybody else, because your interpretation of what you see and feel and understand as the truth is never going to be the same as anyone else's.

        Thanks, I know Mod-Podge has been around since the 70's or so but I wasn't sure if anything better came along and I didn't know how waterproof it was.
