bl0bfi5h, I've got some clear acrylic spray, that hopefully should take care of any potential scratching... And I'm so excited to get my room done, I'm really going all out with the comic theme. The way I figure it, this might be the last time for awhile that I'm living somewhere that will let me paint the walls- with a huge comic mural...
My first decoupage project! Not counting, of course, the little tissue paper covered box when I was eight . So, I'm in the process of redecorating my room (in a comic book theme), and the desk was bugging me because its so dang boring... Now it's definitely more interesting:
Here's the desk before the makeover:
Here's after the first day:
And now finally finished:
There's panels from older and recent Iron Man comics in there, they're all scans that were printed however, no comics were hurt in the making of this project
I think it turned out pretty good, it just needs a coat of sealer and it's ready for my new room! I hate to put my computer on it and cover up the comics though
Hi! I happened to be looking through McCall's website earlier and came across this: http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M5514.htm. I'm not sure if it's quite what you're looking for, but it could probably be modded a little smaller or something. Hope this helps!
That looks amazing! I hope mine will turn out even half as good as that! Thanks for the advice, I didn't even think about buying the paint in the craft section , I guess I was stuck on wall paint, but I'll definitely look at the craft section when I go shopping.
I'm planning on painting a mural across a whole wall in my bedroom, and I'm curious to see if anyone has any paint recommendations. Any particular type or brand? Did/would you use some type of paint pen for outlining? Should I use primer first? I'm only going to need four colors, I think...
