Sealing Paper For Resin

Do I need to prepare a surface before Mod Podging it?

Absolutely! Here you go:

  • Wood – Sand smooth with fine grit sandpaper, wipe off sawdust.
  • Glass – Thoroughly wash in warm, soapy water to remove dirt, dust, and grease film. Then rinse in warm water and let it dry.
  • Canvas – Wipe primed canvas clean; if unprimed, apply 2 coats of gesso primer or acrylic paint.
  • Plaster – Wipe clean with damp cloth.
  • Plastic – Clean with soap and water. You’ll need to test the surface though as Mod Podge doesn’t stick to all plastics (see the next question).
  • Papier-Mâché – Wipe clean with damp cloth.
  • Terra Cotta – Wipe clean with damp cloth.
  • Tin – Wash with soap and water, then wipe with a white vinegar dampened cloth if it’s really dirty.
