What is Mod Podge?

Mod Podge is a decoupaging medium used in a wide variety of crafting projects. You can choose from a variety of types of Mod Podge such as medium for paper, puzzles, paper maiche and in finishes such as matte and glossy. The Mod Podge Formula Guide can help you determine the kind of Mod Podge you need for your specific project.


Gathering Your Photos

Make copies of all of the photos you want to use. You may want to have them professional printed on matte or gloss paper, depending on the look you prefer. Select a wide variety of photos in different sizes. You will need a lot of photos to cover an entire wall.


Materials for the Project

Purchase Mod Podge for Paper in Matte or Gloss. You will need a wide sponge brush, which you also can purchase at a craft store. For a hard, shiny, durable finish, top off your project with a few coats of polyurethane. You will need a roller brush to apply the polyurethane.


How to Assemble Your Photo Wall

Dip your sponge brush in the Mod Podge. Slick it across a small section of wall. Immediately press a photo into the Mod Podge on the wall. Slick more Mod Podge on top of the photo. Repeat this until you have placed all of your photos on the wall. Allow the coat to dry--about 15 or 20 minutes. Apply a second coat. If you run out of Mod Podge, allow your last coat to dry. Then slick the wall with polyurethane that you pour into a paint tray. Roll a roller brush into the polyurethane and roll a coat onto the wall.
