Craft Product Review: Mod Podgeables Acrylic Shapes and Papers by Plaid

Pinterest

If you’ve spent anytime crafting at all, you’ve probably heard of Mod Podge- it a glue, varnish, and sealer all in one. And there are scads of formulations, including shimmer, outdoor, sparkle and fabric. Now Cathie Fillian and Steve Piacenza  have come up with some really cool companion products for  our tried-and-true crafting staple! Meet “Mod Podgeables” by Plaid Crafts!

Two of the products I’ll be talking about today are the Mod Podgeable Acrylic Shapes and Mod Podgeable papers. I thought it might be easier to show you in a little video. Take a look!


This is such a new product, there isn’t even a link on line yet. But the description on the package o the Acrylic Shapes says this:

Light weight shapes can be Mod Podged front and/or back using Podgable papers and any embellishments. Great for collage are on canvas, mixed media on wood accessories, jewelry and scrapbooking.

So I played with the paper and shapes, and make a few things!

In this first piece, I used Sparkle Mod Podge to adhere some Podgeable Papers to the back of the rectangle Podgeable Shape- then incorporated it into an Artist Trading Card (ATC.)

Actual size: 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches.

I decided to try painting some of the Acrylic shapes, just to get a feel for how it worked. I use Martha Stewart Paints (also by Plaid.) Then I decoupaged a photo of a Union Jack:

You’ll notice that when you apply the Mod Podge, it looks milky- but when it dries it will be clear.

Here is another necklace piece I worked up (using a Vintaj brass component.)

Actual size: 2.5 inches across.

Lastly, I used a Podgeable Tag & the keyhole image from the Podgeable paper stack to make a component for a hand made book cover I’m working on:

Incidentally, I shaded the Podgable Paper with some Distress Inks before I decoupaged it to the tag.

Here’s the low-down: the Podgeable Acrylic Shapes (which retail for about $5.00 USD)  are super-cool for adding that “resin” look to your embellishments with out all the mess and toxicity- and the Podgeable Papers (which retail for about $5.50 USD) are a nice mix of sizes and shapes for your mixed-media cards, collages, canvas, etc. (Even without the Acrylic Shapes!) I’ll be having fun with these products- and I think you will, too!
