A few years ago I decided to banish the plain white walls in the toilet and decorate with a superhero theme. The room was partially tiled with plain white tiles ending just below shoulder height so we could get away with a bold colour or colours choice.
You Will Need
- Comics or magazines
- PVA glue
- Small bowl
How to Make
- Prepare the walls you intend to cover by washing thoroughly and allow to dry
- Select some full pages to use as a base, don’t pic k your favourites as you will be covering most of the pages
- Mix PVA with some water in the bowl to make it easy to use – it should be a watery consistency like thin paste
- Start by sticking some full pages onto the wall – this gives a base coat so that no wall colour shows through. Apply glue to the back of the page, adhere to the wall and smooth by applying a thin coat of PVA to the front of the image.
- Repeat this process to cover the full wall, placing the pages at different angles and playing particular attention to corners.
- Allow this base cost to dry and in the meantime start to cut out a selection of images of different shapes and sizes
- Once dry start applying the images making sure you position them at different angles and overlap for best effect.
- As you finish small sections brush your PVA mixture over the images – this helps fix them to the wall but also adds a varnish type finish so you can wipe the walls of any spillages or splashes.
Comics are a colourful source of décor but crosswords work equally well
