heylo, i just was wondering if a large amount of decoupage will dry all the way through? i kinda put ALOT on and i'm not sure if it's going to dry completely or not...and also, anyone know any ways of making it dry faster if it will? thanks much ^_^

I don't know how much you put on but it should dry.  It may stay milky in color or it may peel off easily once it is dry.  You really should put a layer on and wait about 15 minutes before putting on another layer.  You might try a cool heat hair dryer or put it under a hot lightbulb to try to get it to dry faster.  Hope the info helps and that I am not getting back to you too late.

i wouldn't put on a lot of mod podge on unless the paper is really thick. it'll only wrinkle the paper. usually mod podge will stick on and stay there to whatever your using in about 5-10 mins. after its mostly dry, use your fingers to smooth on another layer over the picture. smoothing the mod podge on using your finger prevents the surface from getting all milky looking (unless your using a huge blob..)

good luck  Smiley

thank you ^_^ that should help when i try to put it on pics again and such...but for now it's on a cardboard box and i'm attemping to make sure all the beads and stuff i just glued to it stay down really well...it seems to be drying but taking a long time...as long as it dries i don't care how long it takes. ^_^ but thanks, i'll try the hair drier thing tomorrow
