Homemade mod podge (matte & glossy versions)!

Make your own chalkboard paint (in any color you choose)!

Make alcohol inks using Rit powdered dye!

Whip up some air dry craft clay!

  2. I'm afraid to check out Pinterest as I already spend too much of my time at the computer. I did check these sites and found some great ideas I want to try. I've already made friends with the paper mache clay site. :^) Thanks for sharing.
