Mod Podge Rocks!: Decoupage Your World
According to the Lark Crafts site:
Mod Podge Rocks! features over 40 simple, inexpensive decoupage projects that showcase the versatility of this celebrated product. Contemporary, fun, and welcoming—just like author Amy Anderson’s popular Mod Podge Rocks! website-the book includes everything from home accessories and holiday decor to wearables and jewelry. Joining Amy herself as guest project designers are some of the hottest names in crafting, such as Cathie Filian and Candie Cooper. A basic section outlines the simple techniques, and each project features beauty shots, easy-to-follow instructions, and how-to photos.
What I loved:
1. In case you’re new to the world of decoupage, the book begins with an introduction to Mod Podge, and explains the properties and uses of the different formulas.
This section is helpful to beginners, but it also makes a great quick reference sheet for more experienced Podgers.
2. The Basic Techniques section shows you how to prepare surfaces and materials for decoupaging, then takes you through the complete process with clear and easy to follow step-by-step instructions. This section also outlines the “Mod Podge Tool Kit” that will be used for all of the projects in the book. The result: At the end of this section, even a total Mod Podge novice will feel prepared to take on any project in the book.
3. The instructions for each project are clear, complete, and easy to follow. From the start, you’ll know exactly what you need and what to do to achieve the results shown in the book.
4. The book contains more than 40 projects, including wearables, home decor, and holiday projects.
If you were expecting only paper crafts, think again. The projects featured in this book range from the geeky and beautiful to the downright hip! I included a few of my favorites above.
