So I'm painting my canvas sneakers with acrylic paint(which is coming out lovelier than I thought it was going to!). Can I coat the shoe after I finish painting with a thin coat of mod podge, or will the paint crackle?

it shouldn't, as long as you're sure to let the paint completely dry.
if you want to be sure of it though, you could always spray the dried acrylic paint with some type of spray fixative.

i've tried using mod podge for cd coasters and fabric.  when they got wet, the mod podge got all gooey and was wanting to come off.

that's the only thing i can think of wrt your sneakers. you might be careful with that.

I would deffinitely use a spray fixative to seal it. Your shoes will be much safer for much longer.

I tried Mod Podging over some shoes i painted with acrylic. The Mod Podge tends to dry with a little bit of stickiness. I found the shoes in the back of my closet some time later and they were covered in dust that just stuck to them Undecided

I would try the spray varnish. Although, acrylic paint is durable and doesn't always require varnish. Hopes this helps Smiley
