    I use watered down modge podge as well. Just use 3-4 coats and make sure it dries completely in between coats.

    Hi,

    can you please post some pics of this in the terrarium? I really want to see how it looks finished. I bought some but I'm afraid of it becoming glossy. I got the matte type but was just curious of what it turns out like.

    Thanks,
    Andrea
