Modge Podge Recipe

Almost Modge Podge

© Leslie Sausage

These two recipes are very similar to the purchased product Modge Podge glue.

Modge Podge Glaze:

Mix 3 parts white glue (any brand) to 1 part water.

Add more or less water to get the desired texture and thickness.

Add 2 Tbsp. varnish, for shine.

Store in a glass container with airtight lid.

Just Like Modge Podge:

1/4 C sugar
1/4 C all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp powdered alum
1 3/4 C water
1/4 tsp oil of cinnamon

In medium size pan, combine sugar, flour and alum.

Gradually add 1 cup water, stirring vigourously to break all lumps.

Boil until clear and smooth, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

Add remaining water and oil. Stir until thoroughly mixed.

Store in glass container with airtight lid.
