Subject: ??about decoupaged jars and cans
I decoupage recycled spaghetti,mayo,jam,etc
jars and coffee cans. After I decoupage them I use a matte sealer to protect the decoupage work,can anyone tell me if this is food safe. If I not I can make banks out of them

hiya kritternol... i used to use glue and water all the time too... i only became a mop n glo convert after i heard they can't get the stuff off of the floors... hehehe...
after that i just presumed it would be a much more durable finish... and it's made for floors that would be washed so i figured it was a perfect finish sealer for EVERYTHING...

If I remember right, the mop and glo stuff is also what is used for polymer clay. Very durable finish.

I don't know. But I'd think they'd look nice just sitting on a shelf to hold little things. Love to see a picture. I've been experimenting with the glue4 & water mixture for practice.

If the decoupage and sealer is on the outside, I don't think it would hurt anything on the inside. I did some similar to what you are talking about, in red hat and was just uploading pics getting ready to post them.

i agree with msjunejoy..... if it's on the outside.. what's the worry.....
geesh... i've been purging all week and just got rid of a ton of em..... hehehe.. now i remember why i was keeping em.... lol...

I use glue & water. Is mop & glo the same result as mod podge?

wWhat about future floor wax? I thought it was acrylic floor wax that everybody was raving about awhile back because it was non yellowing. Never heard anything about mop and glo. Does it yellow?

as far as i know mop n glo is non yellowing... same as future floor wax... not for certain though...
hear anything more about the ammonia ?
seems the posts are getting all out of order on this one too??????????? yikes

I mentioned ammonia because ammonia is what you use to strip the acrylic floor finishes, like mop and glow and future.
