3. Paint your piece before gluing images to it in order to prevent seeing through any of your images.  Once the images get wet from glue/mod podge/sealant/whatever , you may find that they are see through.  By then, it's not a good time to find that out  Undecided



Am I stupid?  How does painting the peice prevent the image from becoming transparent when glueing/mod podging?

So rested she by the tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

I would guess she means this tip for if you are decoupaging onto a surface that is already decorated in some way, like a coffee can or cigar box.  If you paint it a uniform color underneath, it won't matter if your images become transparent, whereas if you had left the object as is it could interfere with the images.

exactly, nicegirl512! Wink

and don't forget, some images are more transparent/porous than others (e.g., tissue paper or cheap paper)

I had a small trashcan that looked so plain and spruced it up with a map from an old National Geographic.
