Mod Podge Professional Decoupage Tools
"The right tool for the right job," I always say! As an experienced crafter, you know that sometimes you can improvise, and other times you just need a good tool to get a good result. When it comes to decoupage, it can be easy to get bubbles. Bubbles are bad. You don't want them. Your fingers will only get you so far; trust me, I know this. What you need is a brayer and a squeegee. This sturdy, rubber brayer has a 3.5" wide roller and hard plastic handle (total length 5".) You roll over the image after you apply it to the surface. Then to really smooth it down, use the squeegee to remove excess glue. It is small (about credit card size with a rubber end) and easy to use in corners and other tricky areas. Wash with soap and water after use and air dry. Do not put these in a dishwasher! I like that these won't take up much space in your craft area; in fact, the brayer can be hung up. These are sturdy enough for kids to use, at least the brayer, for about ages 7 and up. Add decorative paper to furniture or wood letters for a child's bedroom. Make a "thinking chair" for your kids by tearing pages from an old dictionary and gluing them to an ugly old chair. Ta da! Recycled furniture! Have fun creating! ~ Sara
