As for the artists medium gel, I've used it before but I was wondering if they made it in finishes besides matte (I haven't seen it before) because for a lot of my projects I like a glossier finish. 

Golden does, I assume Liquitex does too.

Along the same lines, I picked up a jar of "Aleene's Instant Decoupage Glue Sealer & Finish" recently and am using it on a project where I previously used ModPodge - so far it seems to be very similar, maybe a bit thinner than MP, but takes a while to dry (of course, I was using it pretty thickly, too.)  It's priced similarly to ModPodge and comes in both matte and gloss finishes.

I went to Michael's last night and apparently they are in cahoots with Mod Podge because they don't carry Liquitex or Golden. I'm going to venture out to Hobby Lobby this weekend... I'm sure they have a larger selection.

Did you look in the section with the oil paints & brushes? That's where my Michael's keeps it...not with the decoupage stuff.

Yeah, my local Michael's carries Liquitex (they have a crappy Golden selection though) and its on the other side of the store from the Modge Podge in the paint section (like canvases and oil paints and stuff).

So I'm assuming the Aleene's stuff is tacky after it's dry also like Modge Podge?

Also, the artists medium gel says it is waterproof when it is dry, but from my experience it isn't since if you drop water on it it turns that cloudy white color and is slightly tacky like modge podge.  I still have to use acrylic spray sealer on it.
