Mod Podge Sheer Colors Review

Hello All,

Ria on this side. You all are aware of the brand Plaid and their product Mod Podge. If you are a crafter who is into home decor, then Mod podge products are the best for you.

Today, I have come up with Mod Podge sheer colors. Craftshop has a wide range of all the colors and other products from the Braind Plaid, but today I have four colors for the project - Aqua, Purple, Pink, Green.

Mod Podge sheer colors are well known to stain glasses. So, I had to try them at first.

Its easy and fun to do. Take any glass item, here I took shot glasses. Flip open Mod Podge lid and drop few drops into the glass. Slide it along the slides. Try it with other colors and let them merge on their own by sliding the glass. 

Invert the glass on a wastesheet and let the excess drip. After few minutes, turn the glass upright and let it air dry for a day.

After it got dried, the sheer colors turned into a beautiful  transparent color. 

If you wonder that same effect can be achieved with Glass colors then you will obviously find a difference in the finish. The marble effect from the sheer colors are more prominent and bright.

I have used them for candle holders, so here how it looks in the dark with lighted candles in it.

The glasses can be used differently. 

Moving from staining glasses, I tried Sheer colors on to MDF too.

On the left side, it is covered with sheer color and on the right hand side its acrylic color. Both of them belong to the same colors but you can see that acrylic colors are not transparent unlike the sheer colors. They are best for giving a light shade of a color.

You can add to your projects to give a nice transparent hue of a color. Here I have teamed the sheer color-Purple with CrafTreat Flourish Background Stencil or you can make it a background for a project like the image below:

Here I have brushed all the colors as shown in the first picture and the sentiment is from Jillibean Soup Clear Stamps - Today is full of Possibilities.

Another possibility of using Mod Podge is on the cards as a colored Texture Paste.

Here I have combined The Sheer color-Green with a talcum powder to make a home made texture paste, and it worked. I applied the paste through CrafTreat Flourish Background Stencil and let it dry.

I let it dry completely and made a card out of the background. 

Take a closer look:

These sheer colors are real quick in incorporating in any project especially if you are a fond of colored texture paste and staining glasses. 

I hope you have liked all the projects. 

Happy crafting!
