Book review and giveaway: Mod Podge Rocks!


Do you love to decoupage everything in your life that stands still long enough?  Or are you looking for a totally accessible art form to add to your repertoire?  Or maybe you're looking for kid-friendly materials and projects to do this summer!  If any of these apply to you, you should take a look at Mod Podge Rocks!, by Amy Anderson.  Amy started a blog by the same name because of her personal obsession with Mod Podge, the glue, sealer, and finisher that so many people are nuts over.

There are now quite a few formulas available, and Amy explains them all and what they are each best for.  It's interesting that the line has expanded into outdoor applications, a dimensional and a sparkle formula, and into a new finish as well.  Besides the traditional gloss and matte finishes, Mod Podge now has a satin finish too.

The book is packed with more than 40 projects, designed not only by Amy but also by some of her crafty friends, whose names you will know.  Candie Cooper, Jenny Doh, and Cathie Filian are among the contributors.  Lark Books is the publisher, so you know the pictures are going to be great and the instructions are going to be clear.  I have to admit to you here that my very favorite project of all is a glowing mummy hand that is reaching up out of a candy bowl.  This project was designed by Cathie Filian.  Here's a version of it (not the picture from the book) shown below:



***Free Stuff Alert!!!*** 

Would you like a copy of  Mod Podge Rocks!?  Just leave me a comment below and you'll automatically be entered to win.  If you tweet or post on Facebook or other social spots about the contest, you can leave a second comment and be entered twice!

Please make sure that your link will lead me to an email address, or else I won't be able to contact you.  No contact, no win, and I simply have to go on to the next person.  Deadline: June 20, 2012

I think I need to be reintroduced to Mod Podge. I used it a long time ago for decoupaging. I am a self taught mixed media artist and focus on art journaling and artist books. I'd love to win the book so I can learn some new things about Mod Podge. Thanks for the chance. Should I win, please contact me at bkisrael@gmail.com.
