Do you just happen to have a pile of old slate shingles just laying around? I know I do. I have just recently begun transforming old slate into fancy decor for my yard and home.
I am a sucker for comic books. I have children, so not all my comics are in mint condition. I decided to put those ripped, torn and almost dead comic books to some good use. Reusing these pages feels so much better than just recycling them. Here is the list of tools I used for this project: ~Soap & Water (for cleaning the slate). ~Exacto Knife. Adults Only Please. ~Liquitex Gloss Medium & Varnish (F) Fluid Medium. ~Paintbrush or Applicator for the Liquitex. (I only had a paintbrush on hand). ~Old Comic Book. ~Screws & Washers(for hanging).
