    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Barbara asked: "Could Mod Podge be used in place of clear glaze?"
    A: Sure! I also really like Gel Medium - which comes in both matte and gloss finishes and is very fast drying and easy to work with. It's available at fine art supply stores as well as big box craft stores.
