Mod Podge is a brand name for a gel medium used in découpage craft projects. The sticky substance acts as a glue, sealer and finish. With Mod Podge, you only need one product to affix cutouts to a surface, cover the cutouts with another coat, seal and finish. Not all crafters use Mod Podge; some alter common products to produce a similar result.
