Featured Project: Magazine Faux Mosaic


  • Mod Podge Matte Finish
  • Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
  • Scissors
  • Paint Brush
  • Acrylic Paint (color for faux grout)
  • Magazines
  • Surface to create mosaic on (canvas board, coasters, wood, etc)


  • Prep your project surface by painting it with acrylic paint in your prefered color – this will take the place of the grout between the pieces of your design. 
  • Sketch out your design if desired
  • Cut desired shapes and colors from magazine pages
  • Brush a small section of the surface with matte Mod Podge and place colored paper pieces over the Mod Podge and then brush Mod Podge over them.  
  • Continue this process until you have filled the surface (remember to leave spaces between the paper pieces to create the illusion of grout)
  • Apply Mod Podge Dimensional Magic to the paper pieces (not to the grout areas) – squeeze a small amount on each individual piece of paper and use the tip of the tube to spread it (this will create the raised ceramic look)
  • Allow to dry completely (about 2 hours)
