    That looks cool! I have a body I’m thinking about doing something like that to. Do you have pics of the process? Any tips on what you did right or wrong?

    Mod podge is that goop that saturates the cloth and adheres it to the body right? The finish now has the cloth feel?

    I think he said he used clear over the top... So I don't guess it'd feel like cloth... But, I don't know, just a guess...

    What exactly is "clear"? I get it's the last step but what do you use over mod podge, and is it buffed shiny or just let to dry?

    I didnt take pics , but its really easy. Spread a bit of mod podge on the body. Lay down your cloth. Spread more mod podge over the cloth. Let dry. Trim around the edge with an exacto knife.
