    Can you buy Modge Podge in the uk, if so where?

    Great Idea.

  14. Claire

    Had this idea and was searching for someone to make this commercially when stumbled on your site. I want to do my own photos and put them on little tiles. I am oh so excited and grateful to you for so generously sharing your creativity and ideas and lovely humour.

    Thank you, loving your work and kind lovely soul.
    Cant wait to do buy some tiles and get stuck (hopefully not literally) in

    i think you are wonderful !!! the imagination and the manner in which you profess your joy at having done this awesome project, and also the energy you put into explaining the processes and tips and tricks is great !! I am an old photographer and having just lost all my family and then having all my storage garages ripped off completely , and my family’s and my life possessions stolen ,including all my cameras , photo albums,photos , negatives discs,hard drives , every photo i ever made and we are talking 45 years of it…it broke my heart and broke me too!! i am still in love with photography, just have no way to do it …sorry , way off track !! i could have built a house of my photos and would have done the walls with your idea and my photos were i able to !! Just wanted you to know you inspired me and to thank you !! with love and respect , peace , elizabeth

    Can you use these as coasters? Also, do you just leave the coat of mod podge on the top of the photo? Other instructions I have found say to wipe it off. Also can you spray a sealant of fixative on top of the photo once dry to protect it from liquids? Thank you.

    Kind regards,

      hi sheila, i’m planning on making mine into coasters as well, i would love to know if you made them and what products did you use? or, maybe our friend, crunch betty can give us more info…thanks!

    Would the same processes be applied if I were to use a photograph printed professional? I’d like to have a more “sharp” image as the outcome! Any thoughts??

    • Chelsea

      Hi Cassie. If I were you I would print out on regular paper, and let the images ink dry for an hour or so, then use epoxy or resin to set it instead of mod podge. Make sure it’s clear resin. There is a kit at Michaels and Joannes and I am sure AC Moore has it too called “Easy Cast”. It’s two bottles a hardener and the resin itself. Use the 40% off coupon on their website they have every week and you can get it for 8.00. Make sure you follow the directions inside the package to a tee, or else the resin just ends up sticky. It will take 24 hours to dry completely. Put one coat on the tile then stick the photograph on, then paint another coat of the mixed solution on top, blow through a straw to move the resin around so you can get rid of brush strokes and air bubbles. Then let dry and keep away from finger prints and dust and animal hair for 24 hairs. It will be hard, like a ceramic mug and it won’t look painted like this technique. But I like this technique. The reason I say to use regular paper, is because at the end you can also sand down or shave off the edges, like in this tutorial. And the photo paper may give a more raised appearance then regular paper or even not stick as well to epoxy.

  18. I am curious to find out what blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m having some minor security issues with my latest website and I’d
    like to find something more safeguarded. Do you have any

    I almost never leave comments, however,this is such a good idea that I wish it was mine. My hard drive is full of photos also. I need to hook up my printer and get creative.
