Which decoupage glue do you use?

Since I decorate objects with napkin technique I use a white glue for crafts or Art Potch by HobbyLine. Basicly you can use a lot of glues or... varnishes. I know artisans who use acrilyc varnish as glue for decoupage technique.

But I see a lot of mentions about Mod Podge glue. Is it good? Does it have something special?

How the clock has been sold

I live in the city, about 1 million citizens. I varnish my decoupaged objects at my balcony.

First I try to collect 3-5 objects and then varnish them. The reason is a small quantity of varnish dries fast and I don't want to let the rest in the small bottle I use for varnishing for a long time.

So, how it looks like. My balcony gets a look of art gallery. Neighbours stare - greeks have such a habit.

One of these days my neighbour from the left side started to ask accurately about my "frosted roses" clock. Just I told her I sell it she asked for the price and took it.

Oh, It is a pity I live at the so high floor. I could sell more by this way

My first complete shabby chic work

Recently my friends invited me for baptism of their three children. Try to take gift for two boys and a girl together and you' ll understand my problem with it. The decoupage art looked like something helpful.

I love classic and old things as many other people. These things touch our souls. But usually I create object in modern style. I don't know why. This time I was really decided to create something looks old.

I trained to create shabby objects but it's not enough. It have to looks completely old with its images and colors.

The result of my work you can see below
