PLAID MOD PODGE

I saw this in the store the other day and bought some for this feature:

Mod Podge® works great as a glue. This waterbased formula dries clear and holds tight. It will adhere paper, fabric and other porous materials. Mod Podge® is non-toxic and cleans up with just soap and water, so it's great for kids! It's available in five convenient sizes, perfect for smaller projects or group crafting.

The thought process is to use it to apply a piece of tracing paper or tissue paper to Balsa fins.

So, just wondering if anyone else has any experience with Mod Podge?

Nick!
Makes a very nice covering material, but it does have a few strange properties, in very hot humid weather it clouds up, and lifts slightly, when it cools down it seems to retrun to normal.
Works well with tissue and Jap tissue over balsa or styrofoam. the Holy Mackerel below is covered with mod podge Soaked Jap tissue over Styrofoam, with lots of 1" styrofoam plugs removed for the body to get the finished model under 1lb at liftoff.
