Liquid Starch Book Pages



  1. Good to know as I am preparing to line the inside of my computer armoire in the next few weeks. I am going to use old music pages instead of book pages.
    PS you can't see your arms with the long sleeve shirt!!
    Thanks again, Sandy

  2. I love the video. It's nice to put a voice with a face I see on a daily basis. LOL Thanks for sharing.

  3. You are awesome! I have purchased some of your other videos and heaven knows you could make a business just out of tutorial videos.

    Have a Wonderful Weekend!

  4. Makes me want to jump right in and try something. You make it look very easy and the video is great. I'm a very visual person and this is a great way to learn something.

  5. are to hard on yourself! That was wonderful and I heard no pause. This great info. I know there will be a time when I use this info...thanks to you and your daughter.

    Joy................all ways

  6. That was great. I 've heard of doing this, but didn't really know the details. I love that you can remove it later-not like the old Mod Podge. You did a great job!

  7. Now, I understand why you use liquid starch. I like that it can be removed.

    So, you don't have to sand the surface for the starch to stick?

    Will the starch stick to any furniture surface, even laminate?


  8. Well thanks so much Tracey I bought a corner wall hung cabinet that I have wanted to do this to. Now I know how!

  9. Tracey! Thanks so much for this tutorial. I love the effect! You did a wonderful job and keep 'em coming!

  10. My question: If you want it permanent (I'm selling my piece in my shop), should you poly over it? Have you? Thanks! Can't wait to try this technique! XOX

  11. OK..I CAN DO THIS....I will try it as soon as I am back to feeling better.
    I have ALL sorts of different papers I would like to do this with.
    Is there a special method of handling it...if your papers are VERY fragile VERY old book pages ?



  12. I can't find liquid starch anywhere????

  13. This is a great tutorial! I just bought an old hymnal at the thrift store for .50 and was wanting a project do with the that old music. I will definitely be trying this.

  14. I've lined 2 different shelves with music sheets using modge podge. One I didn't want permanent so I glued the sheets to a piece of cardboard. Not thrilled with the results. Wish I'd seen this starch idea sooner. Plus it looks so much faster and easier than what I did. Looks like I'll be giving it another try. Thanks for the video tutorial!

  15. hello!

    i just saw your tutorial in action over at mary's blog. fabulous!

    wishing you a safe and fun 4th of july!
