Step 1: Materials
● Foam Brush
● Mod Podge: Gloss- Lustre
Step 2: Find a Jar, Coffee Tin, Box, Ect.
This can be anything from a coffee tin to an old clip board.
Step 3: Choose a Picture
This could be a person, an object, or even a pattern.
Step 4: Cut Out Pictures
This process could take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours depending on your resources and the pictures you choose.
Step 5: Play With Placement
DO NOT glue until you know exactly where you want the pieces.
This is the hardest part of the project because you have to constantly rearrange the pieces until you find the best fit.
When putting the pieces together, you want to layer, not just place edges together. This will help create depth in your collage.
Step 6: Glue
When dipping the brush in the mod podge, try not to dunk the entire brush inside the jar; only the tip of the brush should be covered in mod podge.
This limits the amount of waste and mess.
At times, it does work better to use your fingers. This technique helps when you have small items to glue down.
Step 7: Cover Everything With Mod Podge
Step 8: Dry
It is dry when the mod podge goes from white to clear.
This will probably take about 30 minutes.
Step 9: Wash
It's best if you use hot water and squeeze the mod podge out.
Otherwise the foam will harden and have to be thrown out.
