Default This is making me crazy...

I have been trying to make lunch tins, but I keep getting bubbles or ripples. Once I put modgepodge over the entire thing (and I use just a little bit) I still get bubbles. Can someone help thanks.

to avoid this problem you have to use very very thin coats and allow them to dry thoroughly between coats. I usually do about 3 coats on my tins.

Are you using Mod Podge to adhere your paper to the tin also? If not this will always cause the ripples and bubbles.

I apply ModPodge to one side of the tin at a time with a sponge roller. Then I smooth the paper on with one of those fake Discover cards that they used to send me 4x a week before I got on the "Do Not Mail" list. Kind of like wallpapering, it pushes out all the bubbles.
