I mean, are there any projects that can be done with modge podge that CANT be done with elmers?
Not really. Modge Podge is made for decopage projects, but I really don't like it for any application. Even when dry it tends to be slightly sticky and will attract dust and junk from the air. For decopage, I usualy thin down Eileen's Tacky Glue but Elmers works too.
I'm not sure :/

Agreed-I use an acrylic sealer over my projects when I use it. Elmer's doesn't always stick as well. I like Aileen's tacky glue also. But I just prefer an acrylic sealer on my projects-that also helps if it's going outside .
Quoting psuahr:The price!
And the smell...I use mod podge but I really don't like the smell :(
Modge podge is just thicker white glue from what I can tell.
There IS difference. http://alexmakingstuff.blogspot.com/2012/07/mod-podge.html
Mod podge is basically watered down, but there are different finishes as well.
I have used both and seen no difference. I used a watered down Aileen's tacky glue on an end table that I put all of my favorite pictures on. I used several coats of the tacky glue. That table is probably 15 years old and we have never used a coaster on it. Only difference I notice is that 2 of my pictures have faded in the sun.
I wash it all the time too. I think it is all just a matter of personal preference.
