I used mod podge for decorating my trinket boxes...both the matte and the shiney--I find that if you use a very fine sandpaper on the areas that stick, it helps a lot...just don't do too much or you will take off the mod podge!!

For pots, I use cheapo rustoleum spray paint in clear (store brand, like Ace Hardware)--so far, they seem to holding my plants just fine...

very nice!

This thread is endless and I've probably read through it half a dozen times. The basic idea of making the magazine bowls is awesome and it inspired me to create other artwork with the same technique. I'll be posting pictures as soon as I'm done with some of them. I don't know if this is a suggestion or a question but my husband brought this up while I was complaining about running out of glue - wallpaper glue. Has anyone tried this on paper crafts before? Apparently it's cheap and lasts a long time, plus you can mix the amount you need as you need it. As far as I know wallpaper glue is supposed to be quite strong and last a long time, so maybe it would be a good alternative to just plain glue and for sealing afterwards (pre-painting)?

But anyways, those balls are great and thank you so much for sharing, you opened up a world of ideas for me to work with!

My friend made one of these & directed me here.
I didn't have magazines but I scrapbook so I have a TON of paper.
I wanted to start small so I made a pencil holder.
I read this entire thread & I have to say "Thanks" to everyone who put down your tips!
I cut my paper into 3" strips & then folded in 3rds.
I used a glue stick to keep the strips together & then double stick tape to attach them end to end.
I used ModPodge to cover it, inside & out!
I got so much inspiration from all the photos I thought I'd share mine.

It reminds me of necklaces we made in fifth grade!

Great job, I really love them.
