      I seriously love these mugs! I love the idea of a vinyl decal on them. And of course, you have to fill your mug with Bigelow tea! [client]ReplyCancel

      Can you see the modge podge after it dries?ReplyCancel

    • claudiaJanuary 26, 2016 - 2:23 pm

      Did you use 651 vinyl? I was under the assumption that vinyl needs to "breath" so we can't seal it with anything this isn't true?ReplyCancel

        According to Oracle makers “vinyl is not alive so it does not need to breathe. ” lol!ReplyCancel

    • Roberta UnterseherJanuary 12, 2017 - 8:57 am

      I made some mugs and the de safe mod podge can be seen. I have let them dry and done a second coat
      Any suggestions? Do I cost the WHOLE mug?ReplyCancel

      • prettylifegirlsJanuary 12, 2017 - 11:09 am

        Hi Roberta! Yes, I did apply ModPodge to the whole mug because it does leave a little bit of texture and you’ll want that to be consistent on the whole mug. However, be sure that you are doing a thin layer since the ModPodge isn’t there to help adhesion, it is only there to make the mugs dishwasher safe. I hope this helps! ox.ReplyCancel

          I did this and when hot liquid was poured in the mug the dish washer safe lodge podge peeled off what did I do wrongeReplyCancel

    • JuliaMarch 16, 2017 - 11:19 am

      Looks great! What kind of vinyl did you use?ReplyCancel

    • Lena HendersonJanuary 9, 2019 - 11:08 am

      First of all thank u for the post. Im new to cricket and vinyl but not new to crafting. So im still learning about cricket and vinyl…. Ive never used that kind of mod podge. But all other mod podge is slightly visible when dry, especially on glass. I also thought that permanent vinyl is top rack dishwasher safe? So my question is… what does the mod podge look like after its dry, especially on a wine glass? And why do u cover the vinyl if its supposed to be permanent?ReplyCancel

    • Cathy BeaulieuOctober 15, 2019 - 7:50 am

      Good morning! So you have run these through the dishwasher with no damage to the vinyl? How have they held up over time? What about microwaving? Do they hold up to that?
      THANK YOU!

    • SarahDecember 17, 2019 - 1:22 pm

      Can this been done on like plastic or stainless steal travel mugs?ReplyCancel

      Dishwasher safe modge podge needs to cure for 28 days before it can go into the dishwasher top shelf safelyReplyCancel

    • Mrs. LovelyMarch 10, 2020 - 2:42 pm

      Hi, just wanted to know if the Modpodge would work for a Hydro flask or a plastic water bottle so that the vinyl wont peel when washed?ReplyCancel
