Has anyone tried to modpodge things that were printed on an inkjet printer? Was wondering how the ink stood up - any smearing or running?

Ugh, Yes!! I have been struggling with my mod podge- I have ruined a few cool projects by not treating the printout first with a sealant. I forget what its called because I put the project on the back burner and didn't buy the stuff but someone here may know. I tried using a clear acrylic spray over the printout first on another project and that definitely helped a lot!
Good luck and let me know how it turns out, it may inspire me to have another go at it. Although the sanding part still has me pulling out my hair. I just couldn't get it smooth no matter what i did...

 ::)I just asked this question and these were the answers I recieved..
PAPER GLAZE by AILEEN
DIAMOND GLAZE by JUDIKINS

they dry clear and apparently with no streaks... Wink

I cant get either herein the Sault, but also on my tole painting site

They said to use the final coat or folkart sealer and top coat, which I have since I do tole paint.

My grandson 5 years old and I are going to put computor labels on the old formula cans from our new baby...

Monkeys for coconut  that sort of things...
fun yet cute...

his mom needs these things, for sugar, icing powder, chipits, marshmallows, nuts.  etc...


So we are going to try that on tin cans....
I should really be tolepainting the cans, I guess but, this is something he can do...

Hope the items listed can help you.

Andy, I hadn't heard of either of those - I'll have to look out for them my next trip to the crafts store - thank you! Your project with your grandson sounds cute - you can always do the painting another time - he's only this age once!
