Based on Comic Shoes by Mia
I just loved this idea. So i made my own yay. These shoes were just white canvas. I used a glossy comic book and pva glue (we dont have modge podge in aust so this is probably equivalent) I added water to the glue so it would go further. Applied glue to shoe in sections then went over the comic again at the end. Hope you like them guys... and cheers for the idea!!

You’ve done it beautiful! Did you make new ones for this summer?
they are such an amazing idea! me and some friends have entered a competition to make a recycled outfit and i thought these would be so cool for the shoes. however, the only old shoes we have to use are leather... will pva glue (or similar!) still stick to the leather??? please reply somebody!!!! thanks. x

I actually dont wear them as im a preg and my feet size have changed slightly but technically if you apply the glue all over then they are water resistant but i wouldnt go splashing in puddles... as for cracking i am yet to find out!!

Hey Stephanie,
Love the shoes. Actually I live in Sydney and they do sell Mod Podge at one of my local arts and crafts stores for about $20 AUS, I found it in the glue section when I was trying to find acryllic sealer. You can buy it at RIOTS arts and crafts. These RIOT stores are usually found in westfields shopping centres.

Hehe but yours are the original girl!!! You get all the credit!! I knew pva glue would turn newspaper to mache so hence the glossy... i guess then you can put any mag on your shoes... now there's an idea..
