Mod Podge is a decoupage medium that allows you to adhere photos, fabric, wallpaper, tissue paper and just about anything else to the surface of items. Sometimes when you're decoupaging, air bubbles can form if you're not vigilant about smoothing the decoupage as you proceed. Don't despair if you've let your creation dry only to discover large or small air bubbles. The bubbles can be removed easily and your project will look spectacular.
Things You'll Need
- Mod Podge tool set
- Push pins
- Mod Podge
Assess the air bubbles. Determine if they are in a corner of your craft and harder to get to or in the center and easily seen. Choose a tool depending on the location. Opt for the Mod Podge squeegee for air bubbles in corners and the toothpicks or push pins for air bubbles anywhere else, no matter what size.
Grab your tool and remove the bubbles. Roll the squeegee tool into the corner and flatten the air bubbles. Poke the bubble with the the toothpick or push pin and smooth it over with your fingers.
Brush on another layer of Mod Podge to seal the areas where you've removed the air bubbles. Allow the decoupage to dry and finish your project as desired.
