Customized comic strip shoes!
I had some old shoes that I didn't really wear too much(I bought them a few sizes too big :'() so I decided to expirement on them.

To make a long story short, I cut the little comics out of the sunday news paper and glued them onto my shoes... I think they turned out okay :D

Actually the acryllic made the paper hard :/ I don't wear the shoes often because they crack so i'll try the products you mentioned! :]

Would Mod Podge work? I don't know, I never worked with Mod Podge, would it make the paper too hard? =S I'm gonna buy a container and try it in some projects of mine =)

Oh, we have other thing that should work instead of clear acrylic! I don't know their names in english, in portuguese they're "Termolina Leitosa" and "Cola Pano". I'd make the cartoons waterproof with termolina leitosa and then pasting them to the shoes with cola pano =)

Your shoes look simply amazing =)

I tried doing something like this awhile ago with newsprint but it got really hard and cracked nevertheless. Did that happen to you?
