I made these for a friend of mine for Hogwatch.



 They are images I made in photoshop, added quotes then used mod podge to glaze them. I had never used mod podge before. I don't like the lines left from brush fibers.  I looked for other glazes but there were none at the store. I sanded it according to the directions. I was in a hurry to get them done because I did not know when we were going to have Hogwatch ( It depended on my gift, Paul Kidby cup, coming in the mail), that I didn't have time to rewatch Venture Brothers for the best quotes.  The photos did not come out as bright as real life. I had to get my friend to photograph them because I gave them to him before I took some.




















 See they work.

I've never used mod podge before either but would a sponge brush work better?

I tried a sponge brush but it just left a differrent texture. I also used my fingers which got a little silly.

I dig it.
In my own glazing pursuits, I find it best to do the initial apply with a brush and then take a regular blank notecard or piece of cardstock and  use the longest edge to drag the bristle lines out of the glaze.
nevertheless, these look great, and I'm sure no one will really even notice the brush marks. nice work!

I use mod podge alot and run into the same problems but I've never really found any application method that I've really liked oh well. I love VENTURE BROS. and those coasters are great.
