Alright, fine, I admit it. I’m a Trekkie. Not like the ones in the documentary with the homemade costumes and the encyclopedias and the knowledge of the Klingon language, but, you know, I can geek out to a few hours of TNG.
So, I thought it only appropriate that Captain Picard help us out with a cry voiced by many a not-so-savvy crafter.
Well said, Cap’n P.
(If you’ll recall, I made my own Mod Podge a while back. I still haven’t managed to use it. Probably because I still really don’t know what the fuck it’s supposed to do.)
I can’t believe you gave a shout out to Trekkies (the documentary) – it’s my all time fav and I think everyone should watch it!Love Trekkies, love Pintester.
Decoupage is the only thing I’ve done with mod podge. I have a wooden tray I decorated with pictures from a magazine. Flowers and shit. It’s surprisingly pretty cute.
Don’t go to the Mod Podge dark side! (I know, mixing my geeky shows here). MP causes more headaches than it’s worth. Rock the gel medium for your gluey, collagey, sealant projects! It’s a bit pricey (Use a 40% off Michael’s coupon if you got ’em) and look for it in the acrylic paint section.
There is no shame in being a Trekkie. Some of the wealthiest, most successful people in the world are Trekkies. I’m not one of them…I’m just saying.
I think you’re hilarious. And also awesome. That is all.
Ha! I am a Trekkie, too! I love TNG and, I have to say, Picard was my first celebrity crush! I still love him!!
Very Funny 🙂
Oh, have you tried Dr. Who… It’s lovely… Start with the 9th Dr.. He’s drop dead dreamy!
I’m totally with you hear and proud of my trekkie-ness. Evidence: My first thought when I saw the shot of Picard was, “Oh, that’s when the Ferengi have captured Lwaxana and Picard is trying to win her back with Shakespeare!
OK, this is recockulous. Having used homemade and brand name, I would advise anyone to shell out eight bucks for the brand name. The texture is better, it’s easier to clean, and most importantly – it doesn’t just glue your shit to whatever, it SEALS it, which is importante.
I love the “Trekkies” movie shout out!”Peter, this is the WORST possible time you could have called! Go away!”
I’ve used mod podge. The real stuff. I’m scared to make my own.
Friend sent me a link to your blog. Love it. Thank you! I’ve been failing at the ChigNO for weeks. I test all sorts of stuff, and list as pass or fail on Pinterest, but so many things I wonder about. I appreciate your Consumer Pinterest Reports!
I’m not incredibly crafty, but here is what I have gathered on Pinterest, re the use of Mod Podge: you glue things to other things that would otherwise prove impossible to adhere to one another.
Mod podge = The stuff you used in school to make paper pinatas and stuff. It’s not glue. BUT say you have a regular object like say A high heel. You can take a bunch of clippings of your favorite things like star trek or whatever slap some mod podge on the shoe ( a thin layer) Then take a clipping put it on said mod podge area smooth out repeat until shoe is covered and dried. Then put another THIN layer of mod podge over the clippings to seal them in. And you have a cool unique star trek shoe 🙂 ( I asked the same thing then mod podged the fuck out of a little tykes car putting batman allllllll over the top of the car in a redesign project for my son)
I used mod podge to make coaster. You take a cheap tile from home depot. spread thin layer of mod podge i sued scrap book paper and put a square to fit the tile on top and mod podge another layer let it dry then krylon crystal coat for sealing and protecting from liquid and cork bottom and bam you have a coaster and a use for your mod podge.
I think people use it after they finish puzzles and want it to stick together for forever. You know, so they can hang it on their wall and stare in awe that they wasted that much time putting 1000+ tiny pieces together into a picture of horses, or something.
Mod Podge is used to “wall paper” things that are not wall paper to other things that are not walls.
@Angela Best description ever
@Angela well said!
I think I love you 10x more now that I found out you’re a Trekkie! BFF’s!!! lol
Didn’t you ever watch Art Attack?
So your a Trekkie not a Trekker? So the Trekker must be the die hard costume wearing go to convention fans. I with you, I’m a Trekkie too. I have to admit I was wary of the new Star Trek but once I saw it, Chris Pine had me at “That’s a lot of drinks for one woman to be ordering”. Sigh. He is so cute and Zachary is the perfect Spock. I think Bones was casted well also. Looking forward to the next movie due out this year. Keep on Trekking and er… Testing too.
I am so glad I found your link on Pinterest. Instead of working all day I have been reading your blog posts and for that, I thank you! Before Pinterest I was much like Captain Picard. I didn’t know what the hell Mod-Podge was! Have a good one!
[…] you guys remember when I made ModPodge? (What the fuck is ModPodge?) Sure you […]
I had a dream two nights ago that Picard was my baby daddy. I’ve been super bummed ever since I was forced to wake and leave that most awesome dream world behind. T.T
(PS, I’m reading these backwards and am also super jelly of your hubby’s science officers jersey pic’ed a few weeks after this one. Can we be besties yet?)
I find it really strange that I made this account to post on the very last post of yours on this blog, given my blog name and all and this is the next post I came to. Spooky..dun dun duuuun
