I have a small wooden end table that I want to modge podge with clippings from an old garden catalog, it is black and white like a newspaper. I am worried that the ink my run/smear. Has anyone used newspapers to modge podge with? and any advice first! Thank you!

I haven't tried newspaper and mod podge. I hope someone has. I'd think it might smear or run since the ink smudges on my fingers whenever I read a paper.

I never have either. I, too, hope someone comes along with an answer.

not helpful at all Hilarious!

Cute idea though to use the comics section, but nada on whether the ink smears. I guess it did not smear for her. Shrug! I suppose I will just have to set up a practice run and report back. I tip my hat to you.

It looked like it probably worked for her, but a test is the best way to go. Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

I wonder if something like Fixatif would help prevent smudging?

Interesting product! It looks like it'd be worth some experiments. Thanks for posting, woofie.

The guys in the drafting department where I used to work used that stuff to prevent their schematics and assembly drawings from getting smeared. It does erase, though, so I'm not sure if it would work for this application. It was just the first thing that came to mind. Smiling
