I'm a bit confused as "Mod Podge" seems to have several different ... ah... formulas? Each for a different purpose. The one I chose, out of 3 types on the store shelf, I thought was intended specifically for fabric. I was covering heavy card stock with squares of fabric, then a label. The stuff "never" dried! It was tacky for weeks. Needed to be waterproof as was for outdoor garden stakes. Sent it to Mom anyway, eventually. Her hanging garden in a fabric pocketed shoe rack vertical garden deteriorated by the end of 2 years. The "Mod Podge" was still tacky, not in the least bit waterproof, and the so called "permanent" ink just washed away after the first "watering". Such a waste. I hope that setting a hot cup of coffee on you table does not ruin that pretty surface. How could one possibly make the "Mix" waterproof? Best Wishes,
Mine, sitting on the counter, allows dust, etc. to collect. It's a mess taking out all those skewers to wash them and the bottom of the container. I was also constantly poking myself on the sharp points. Finally I just glued corks end to end till they were tall enough for my container, a pretty tube-vase from a thrift shop, put the "columns" of corks in, not tight. Laid corks on bottom inside to protect knife tips. To clean, just tip everything into a small dish wash tub, swish it around with a bit of soap and your hands. Rinse, let dry, replace. Oh, do use a waterproof glue, or you'll be "rebuilding" your columns. No more sharp points, it looks nice with the cork ends a bit different in height, and Not gluing the columns to the bottom allows for any blade width. Made a shorter one for shorter knives. I tried posting an image. "No-Go". Corks sold by bagfuls from craft stores.
