Podge it

I bought some of that Podge it compound at Michael's with my 40% off coupon. I was so excited to try it out, so, after podging to death the spider in the corner of my kitchen, the hair on my bathroom vanity, as well as the unruly piece of hair sticking up from my head, I'm going to try and podge a picture on a little wooden box. Do I just podge the picture or the entire top surface of the box?

Also, if I shave my legs and then podge them, will that prevent any more hair from growing back?
Just a thought!!

O.K. I confess the reason I bought the podge it was because it was cheaper than buying wax for my legs and unibrow. So there!! there's no box, no podging a picture on a box, just spread the podge gunk on my legs and let er rip!!! Are you happy now, huh, huh??

I read the title to this thread and thought "it must be a euphemism". I assumed that Elise, who has proven herself far too classy to talk like a sailor the way I do, had a tale of some frustration or annoyance to share.

So far as I can tell, the tale was instead about some product for use in decoupaging, that the manufacturer has brilliantly named by shortening and then misspelling the actual term for the intended use. Elise, I am shocked that you would buy such a product. Our children have a hard enough time learning to spell when they are innundated with advertising for "lite" products and "Kountry Kitchen" restaurants , when all their correspondence involves alleged phrases like "cu" and "gtg", not to mention the ubiquitous "lol". Don't get me started on the use of apostrophes....poor children!

Ah well. Enough of that. It has been too long since my last tirade, I guess...

I'll do the whole box then, because it is glossy podge it. The 40% off coupon comes in the paper every couple of weeks with the Michael's add. I got mine about 3 weeks ago. That's when I bought the podge it.

I have not podged just a pic yet...the only project I've done is with hand made paper & I've used it all over the box, so have podged it all...I would assume you could podge just over the pic. The product I used was a bit glossy, so I imagine if you are going to do the whole top you may just want to do the whole box...otherwise it may change the colour of the paint underneath. I could be very wrong, definately not a podging expert:D BTW> Where did you get a 40% off coupon for Michaels? I could use one of those;)
