I don't know for sure, but I would think it would run. I accidentally set a drink on a recipe I printed with my ink jet for just a second and it's not even legible in that spot anymore.

It seems like maybe you could use a spray sealer though.

Joan - if you zap it with clear acrylic spray first, you'll be able to mod podge it. Been there, done that.

Ooo that's a wonderful tip! I'm working on a giant coaster and I was unsure about modpodging the printed tissue paper. It's like photo coasters except it's 12x12 tile and I am treating it like a scrapbook layout with giant photo.

I made a project for DH and printed the pics out at home, then mod podged over them. I did not encounter any running, smearing, etc. I was worried about it too. Something to note: I used my Kodak photo printer to print these pics out. I've been told that this printer puts a special coating on the photos to make them water resistant.

I put mod podge over a lot of printed images. I also use heavy gel medium. Neither of them run, and both protect the image.

Sure, I am attempting (LOL) to take some pictures and add them to this set of Memory Blocks that I got somewhere!!! I think by My Mind's Eye(?). It will make a 9 block puzzle like thing. It is for a co worker who recently had a baby. Obviously, I haven't gotten very far with this project, but I'll post it when I'm finished.

I made a countdown clipboard and Mod Podged over it. It did not smear. It sat for quite some time after printing before I did, don't know if that made any difference. I too wonder if it depends on the type of ink and possibly the absorbency of the paper. Can you print a small mock up and give that a try before covering the whole project?
