Seems every time I look up, a new invention of a product that makes our lives easier is for sale. Not all products are created equally.  Before I start any project that requires mending, I stumble on which adhesive do I use.  In my search for adhesives for each project, I’ve purchased an accumulated different types.  Today I will talk about five products that are/can be used as adhesives for any of your decor products.  As an affiliate of Amazon, you can easily purchase any of these adhesives by clicking on the amazon links below.

ModPodge – The package states it’s a Waterbased Sealer, Glue & Finish. Use On All Surfaces. Mod Podge dries clear in approximately 15-20 minutes and can be sanded to a smooth finish. Apply with brush or sponge applicator. Close container after each use. Clean up with water while wet. Once dry, Mod Podge cannot be removed. Use as a puzzle saver, a sealer glue, a quick finish, a textured finish,or a build-up finish.” Non-toxic.

Acrylic Gesso – The package states Surface Preparation Primer.  Surface preparation for acrylics and oils. Surface Prep Mediums are used to seal prime and add tooth (for color adhesion) to all surfaces such as canvas wood paper and metal. This same preparation is used for both acrylic and oil paint. Our professional gessoes usually take just one coat, and adding Liquitex Soft Body color to any gesso creates customized tints and primers. Liquitex Clear Gesso Surface Prep Medium is an ideal high tooth for pastel oil pastel graphite and charcoal. Excellent ground for acrylic and oil paint. Mix with acrylic color to have a tinted ground. Dries clear to translucent depending on thickness. Excellent base coat primer for many applications, including murals. Can be applied to any material or surface that will accept traditional acrylic media, such as canvas, paper, wood, etc. Liquitex Surface Prep Mediums are lightweight, non-toxic, and dry to a water-resistant, non-yellowing surface.

Liquitex Glazing Medium –  Creates clear, Brilliant glazes, Adds Transparency. Liquitex offers the broadest range of acrylic mediums to inspire creativity at every stage of the painting process. Liquitex Fluid Mediums perform much in the way that their name implies, they are fluid in nature and reduce viscosity of heavier paints and gels. They tend to self-level and do not retain brushstrokes. Liquitex Fluid Mediums modify acrylic paints in a variety of ways and contain acrylic resins to maintain or enhance adhesion and durability. Liquitex Glazing Medium Fluid Painting Medium is ideal for creating brilliant, jewel-like glazes with acrylic artist colors. Excellent brushing and leveling qualities. Dries quickly for rapid layering. Mix with any amount of acrylic color; small quantities of color provide the most transparency. Works best with transparent or translucent colors. Formulated for maximum flexibility and adhesion, will not chip or crack on canvas. Can be applied to any material or surface that will accept traditional acrylic media, such as canvas, paper, wood, etc. Liquitex Texture Gels are lightweight, non-toxic, and dry to a water-resistant, non-yellowing surface.
