Has anyone tried using Mod Podge as a sealer over stained wood or painted wood? I understand it can be used as a sealer. But not sure of the long term effects. I wanted to try it because of the matte finish feature. It also comes in gloss finish. I do like the way it coats as it is a white color when brushed on  but dries clear when it dries. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I don't see why it would not work as a sealer over stained wood or painted wood.
They use it all the time for sealing and protecting photos on wood.

I have been meaning to try it myself, so I will be looking forward to hearing how your experiment goes.
Show us the results.
Good Idea I think.

Ken,
Yes, I tried an experiment on a piece of stained ply and since it is a glue based sealer I was concerned about moisture and it getting "sticky" from the inherent glue. I placed a "small puddle" of water and let it sit for about 1/2 hour. It produced a "wet stain" after I wiped the water away but within 10 minutes it recovered to a clean finish. With these results I am satisfied that it will work as a good sealer.

Frankg - Another product to look into is Gesso. That is a product used by artists to seal their canvas. I have used it to fill voids as well as seal the edges of plywood and MDF. Applies easily, sands great and accepts paints excellently.
Gesso is reasonably priced. It is available in various thicknesses, as well as clear.
