My partner and I stumbled over here different page and
thought I might as well check things out. I like wha I see so
i am just following you. Look forward to finding out about your wweb page repeatedly.
Love it! I had never thought about covering it with a decoupage. Is it noticeable where it was applied and where it wasn’t? If I wanted it to be seamless, would I have to apply the decoupage all over?
If you aren’t careful with your brushstrokes, you can feel where the Mod Podge is. You can’t see it at all.
Mary Waters says
The mod podge is totally visible. I do not recommend using it at all! That was my experience…
Sorry you had a subpar experience. I have found the slight visibility of the brushstrokes to be worth being able to put the dish in the dishwasher.
Meredith F. Dunham says
Is the mug microwave safe with the vinyl and the decoupage?
I have microwaved mine multiple times, and it has held up so far!
Mary Waters says
Hi, I’m wondering why you used the dishwasher safe mod podge when it leaves such a visible marking from the paint brush bristles? I tried this today on a coffee mug of my own and was very unhappy with the results. It looks like it’s covered in gunk!
Oh no! It shouldn’t look like it’s covered in gunk! You really need to use a soft bristle brush and careful painting to eliminate as many brushstrokes as you can.
