- comic books which you don't mind cutting up
- thick bangles (recommend at least 1cm width)
- PVA glue (I believe this is also called Mod Podge)
- gloss varnish (optional, but recommended)
Time: a few hours
Step 1: Create Base Layer
Cut up strips of comic books which match your intended colour theme, and glue the strips onto the bangle until it is fully covered. For the Spiderman bangle, you can use this colour theme to help establish a story; for example, having a "dark" side and a "light" side. This will be relevant later.
Step 2: Decorate the Inside of the Bangle
It's up to you what images you put on the bangle, but I used the inside to tell one story, and the outside to tell another. On the inside I wanted to document Peter's transition into Spiderman. As a science student, I personally loved the "I knew science would be the death of me!"
Once you have finished the inside of the bangle, seal with an extra layer of glue, and wait to dry.
Step 3: Complete the Outside of the Bangle
Remember in step 1, when I established a dark and a light side to the colour theme? This was to set the stage for the story on the outside of the bangle; the animosity between Spidey and Venom. Spidey naturally overlays the light side of the bangle; on the dark side, I used images of Venom, plus the ominous "he must die!" quote.
Step 4: Finishing Touches
There you have your own Spiderman decoupage bangle! A great way to get creative with comics, and a method which can be applied to all kinds of objects. Have fun!
