Sealing pictures that your customer wants on a surface is a creative service that doesn’t take long to do. All that you would need from the customer is a copy of a photo that they want podged. Then, seal the picture to a surface such as a wooden board and voila! You are ready to sell a limited edition personalized project. When applying the picture, be sure to smooth the surface as best as possible with your fingertips. Also, use the mod podge to coat a couple finishing layers to the photo.
