Q: Can any type of paper material be used for these projects?
A: It’s best to stick with thin tissue or rice paper napkins that can easily wrap around surfaces without folding over too many bulges; however some thick materials such as cotton fabrics might work if given special attention when adhering onto surface pieces.
Q: Is it necessary to use glue or sealer after completing each project?
A: Yes! Use glue like Mod Podge or any other type of varnish sealer that would protect your finished craft from wear and tear even though most dollar stores come pre-sealed but sealing them yourself ensures longer durability.
Q: How much time is needed to complete each project?
A: for someone that has a good amount of experience with mod podge and crafting supplies, it takes at minimum an hour or two but aesthetics improvements are limitless so you can choose to go above and beyond.
