Easy DIY Project Sealers

Many of you ask me questions about how I seal my projects. Wanting to answer you in the best way I could, I figured I’d write this to explain my different techniques. There is no single answer to how to seal your projects; it all depends on the project you’re creating and where you will place it. What I mean by that is: Is it going to be placed outside? In your kitchen? Or, maybe even in your bathroom, or as indoor home decor put somewhere else? How I seal my projects depends on those things. The use and placement of your project will determine which Easy DIY Project Sealers you use.

Different Sealers

I use a variety of sealants. Mod Podge Gloss, Dishwasher Safe Mod Podge, Mod Podge Matte, Rust-Oleum Crystal Clear Enamel Spray Paint, and Paint Pixie Forcefield Premium Sealer. There are hundreds of sealers on the market; these are just the Easy DIY Project Sealers that I use the most.

Indoor Projects

If my project goes inside my home, in my living room, or a bedroom area and doesn’t need extra protection from the elements,  I usually use Mod Podge to seal it, and I prefer the Mod Podge Matte finish. However, Mod Podge offers many Easy DIY Project Sealers in various finishes such as Gloss, Satin, Holographic, Sparkle, Extreme Glitter, and many more. Applying Mod Podge is easy as pie using my Paint Pixie Artist Assistant 3/4 Paint Brush.

Moisture Resistant Project Protection

If my project is going in my bathroom area, one of the Easy DIY Project Sealers I use is Dishwasher Safe Mod Podge. Why? Because of the humidity and moisture levels that can be present in the bathroom. This sealant option helps protect against damage in moist environments, keeping that cute craft project looking the same as the day you made it. If my project is being used in my kitchen, I prefer to use the Mod Podge Gloss Sealer. It is a durable sealer that is easy to wipe off and clean, making it the perfect choice for projects hanging on the wall in my kitchen.

UV And Water Protection

For projects I create for the yard or garden, that will be sitting in direct sunlight, a combination of Project Sealers is used for Non-Metal crafts. Using my Paint Pixie Artist Assistant 3/4 Paint Brush, I start by applying two coats of The Dishwasher Safe Mod Podge, which takes 28 days to cure; that’s why I use it first. Then apply two coats of Paint Pixie’s Forcefield, which provides UV protection and will keep those beautiful colors looking fresh instead of looking faded. When sealing metal projects for my yard or garden, I use Rust-Oleum Crystal Clear Enamel which comes in spray paint cans, making it easy to cover all the nooks and crannies and offers durable protection from outdoor elements.
