Review of Claudine Hellmuth's Studio Multi-Medium Gloss
August 11, 2010
Thanks to our new Crafts section, we now carry Claudine Hellmuth Studio Multi-Medium Gloss. It's a fantastic product that does so many different things! For fabric art and crafts, it serves as a wonderful glue or glaze. It's very similar to Mod Podge, but with a much better smell. Just apply it with a brush- it dries clear and relatively quickly. Depending on how much you apply, I've noticed it takes a good ½ hour to 45 minutes to dry. The gloss is my favorite (instead of the matte finish) because it provides a nice, subtle sheen.
I've used it to make fabric flowers, gluing thin fabric together, with a wire in between, to make moveable petals (more on fabric flowers to come!). Pressing down allows the medium to seep through the fibers- glossing the fabric petals as well as sealing them together. This medium is also great for decoupage! Once you are finished arranging and gluing your pieces- Use the medium to coat your project and seal it. It's a breeze to clean up too, and it won't mess up a paintbrush.
This wonder product is one of my new favorites at Fabric.com. I've only used it for fabric, floral and decoupage crafts, but you can also use it for image transfers and serves as a paint extender (to be used with Claudine Hellmuth Studio Paints). Check out the Multi-Medium Matte gel as well!
