Introduction: Super Table - Covered With Comic Books

Hi Friends !

This table I made for a film set.
It was a work for the college. Actually I study at a film college ;)
It is very easy to make.
You need just a few of comic books, scissors, and glue.
For finish it , brush a coat of varnish for waterproofing.
;)
This day was very funny, I worked a lot, my friends the same.

What brand of varnish did you use? I have looked a several but I'm terrified of ruining the comics! Great idea by the way easy and great for the comic obsessed ;)

Hi zumbiecow ,
I used one from here Brazil, it is Suvinil.
But I think you could use a ordinary varnish. go ahead ! it works.

Make a wall, with giant comic book panels, like Roy Lichenstein's pop art.

Oh Mary! Mary! You do such cool things in your life! This is tops!! I will be making one of my own now.. I don't know how my guy will feel when I take his vintage comics and make them into a decor piece in our living room but I'm willing to do it for the love of a conversation piece.. I do love this Mary! Thanks.

This looks really nice! I made some custom cd cases with comic books once, but they didn't turn out as nice as this. Maybe I should have used varnish.

i think mod podge would work well for this project

author

Mod Podge will work, but I worry about it's durability. It would certainly be fine for light-duty applications.

I'm a little bit conflicted here,

On the one hand the nerd part of me is crying out over the wanton destruction of a comic book.

On the other hand I've got to say, the table looks great, so good job!

author
mary+candy made it!(author)2011-03-26

"the nerd part" ahushaushauhahahhahaha
You are right.
But you could make a copy of the Comics , so you use the
copy , not the books.

That's awesome! It would be fun to do it with comic strips you get in the paper.

author
mary+candy made it!(author)2011-03-25

Thanks ;)
Sure so it would look more retro-style ;)

author
splazem made it!(author)2011-03-25

Yeah! Your right, that would be retro.

author
splazem made it!(author)2011-03-26

Wow that's really awesome! Do you think I could use Mod Podge to glue and seal the comic books? or should I just use a polyurethane or varnish?

author
mary+candy made it!(author)2011-03-25

Hi
I din't know this product Mod Podge, I saw it only now on internet.. I think it would work very well too, because I use something like it.
For finish and waterproof I used just Varnish ;)
Thanks for comments :)
