I finally finished my comic shoe project! I decided to go with Archie comics, my childhood favorite! Here’s what I did…
Step 1: Purchase mod podge – you can get this at your local craft store, or online.
Step 2: Using a brush or sponge, apply mod podge on a chosen pair of old shoes that you want to cover, along with small strips of your favorite comic book:
Step 3: After applying comic (and taking frequent breaks), let shoe dry for about 30 minutes, or until completely dry. Note: you can use the mod podge to cover over the comic, not just for underneath! I used an X-acto knife to cut around the edges of the heel and such. (you can see that I need to do so on the photos below)
Enjoy your new shoes! It took me a few hours over a weekend to complete these, simply because of cutting up the comic and deciding what pieces go where. Take your time and your effort will pay off!
Thanks for viewing!
