Hi, my name is Cherish Flieder, designer of Today, I wanted to talk to you about painting with Mod Podge. When you're using Mod Podge, there's a lot of different ways you can use it. Of course, there's the basic which is a clear sealant but you can also use it as a tint. You can easily add any kind of acrylic paint of your choice to the body of the Mod Podge, and create some wonderful tints. I'm also going to show you today in this video how you can use a brushstroke Mod Podge formula which actually will create some three dimensionality to your painting. The brushstroke formula on its own is clear and you can simply apply it with your brush and you can mimic some texture that you would see in a painting. So, if you've Mod Podged a painting onto a canvas, you could actually make it look like it's an original. So you're using this technique to actually enhance the texture underneath and mimic the original artist's brush work. So in addition to using the clear Mod Podge to enhance the brush work of the original painting underneath the Mod Podge layer you can also mix paint with it and you can create a work of art of your own. So depending on how thick you want your paint to appear on the canvas or how opaque you want it to be, you're going to use either less or more of the additional Mod Podge medium. So for this stroke, for example, I'm using mostly just the pure acrylic paint and of course I have a little bit of water in my brush so you're seeing some transparency. Now if I mix about half of that with this Mod Podge brushstroke, you're going to be getting a lot more transparent glazes and this can be a really fun way to show the painting that's underneath. Here's an example of what a finished three dimensional Mod Podge painting could look like. So if you like to paint and you like texture, you should definitely give this technique a try. I'm Cherish. I'm so glad you could join me today to learn about painting with Mod Podge, and I hope you'll go live life to the fullest and make it something to cherish.
