Modge Podge can be expensive for our limited budgets. A friend who is very "crafty" suggested to to mix equal parts of liquid white glue and water. We have used this method and it works just as well on our projects.

Hi everyone!
This looks and sounds terrific! I will definitely be trying it out this weekend.
Regarding Modge Podge, I have found some at Lincraft store in Chadstone Shopping Centre Melbourne...I'm sure other Lincraft stores would carry it, even Spotlight should have some. All the best and Thankyou for sharing the idea! Silvia :)

What can I use instead of Hodge Podge and or where can I buy it in Australia?

You can also use regular white Elmer's glue watered down a bit to make it easier to spread. Just be sure it's the clear drying glue.
