Topics: Resin, Fabric

I am doing a resin project with your resin product. The project idea is from a beading magazine and the resin is applied to fabric, over mod podge (both sides of fabric are coated with both products). The fabric is supposed to become a hard plastic, so it can be cut and used as charms - but in my efforts, the fabric remains malleable. What am I doing wrong? THANK YOU!!!

Mixing equal portions of Parts A and B of the resin is essential for proper curing. That said ... I tested each of the Mod Podge® sealers on different pieces of fabric as you described and then coated each piece with resin on each side. Here are my findings:
  • Outdoor Mod Podge-malleable but hard outer shell
  • Paper Mod Podge-very malleable
  • Sparkle Mod Podge-stiff but malleable--LOVE THE SPARKLES!
  • Mod Podge Matte-Mat-firm and stiff with a little flexibility
  • Mod Podge-Gloss-Lustre-firmest and stiffest of them all
Depending on the use of the charms, almost any of the above could be incorporated into a piece of jewelry. This is a great idea and really opens up a lot of ideas for new designs and ways to coordinate your jewelry to your outfits.
