I mainly used advertisements from the magazines, they’re normally much more colorful than individual articles. If you want a theme throughout the bowl, you can look for similar colors, or similar product ads. In most advertisements the model(s) are centered, so if you fold the paper in the right way, you can get mainly bodies, faces, eyes, or clothing to show throughout the sides of the bowl and/or coasters.
Step 1: What You'll Need
- Hot Glue Gun
- Hard Surface to work on
- Mod Podge (or other water-based sealant)
- Newspapers or other surface to let the sealant dry on
- Water-Proof Sealer (I used a Clear Acrylic High Gloss Sealer for coasters)
The size bowl that I made used approximately 1 full magazine. Make sure you have plenty of magazines before you begin; you never know how big of a bowl you'll want to make! :)
