Ok so I have been wanting to try this idea for a while and I finally got around to it. I wanted to make ear rings out of the Harry Potter gummy slugs. I figured it would be easy, I would just mod podge them and throw them on some rings and walla! right? Wrong. SO I tried it and they started to melt? I dipped them and now some of the gummy is sliding off with the exess podge. Anyone have any ideas? If I can figure it out they are ganna look really cool. Slugs on my ears, I mean come on.
See how the yellow is dripping off.

maybe you should try applying the mod podge in lots of thin layers and allowing each layer to dry thoroughly before applying the next layer? or if you have it on hand, I have also heard that spray acrylic works too.

hth. good luck!

i would make a cast of them and pour a resin slug. it would take a lot more time and money though.

i did make gummi bear earrings one time and i just let them dry out for a week or so and then coated them with clear acrylic spray...maybe try that?

They need to be dry/hard. And that may also just be the colour coming off? Not the actual jelly? Maybe put them in the fridge to harden or something. And yes, spray acrylic sealer works really well.
