Shelf Porn Redux | Arts and crafts with Theo from Greece

by  in Comic News Comment

Theodoros Papadopoulos from Drama, Greece, shared his Shelf Porn with us over the weekend, and in the comments section, he mentioned “some pictures of furniture dressed with comic pages. Something we did at our school.”

Theo is a high school teacher in Drama, and he sent in pictures of a craft project he did with his students.

“I am a teacher in a high school here in my town. I teach computers, but every year it becomes harder and harder. Children are more difficult because life is more difficult. They grow up away from us, hiding in that huge internet place that nobody can control, at least in a good way,” Theo said. “So I tried to do something different in my class. We made some chairs to look like comic books. We used glue and put some comic book pages on them. The glue is crystallized wood that you can buy by the pound. It’ s non toxic and you can remove it from your hands with water. When they dried the next day we used again another layer of glue. It worked like polish. The glue is white but it becomes transparent when it dies. Now people can sit of them without any problem. The students like the experience, or maybe the time that did not have a lesson.”

Check out some of the photos below.


















We even did a table too. The statue is not my doing but a colleague did it. I just tried to add something nice.

As you can see a chair was damaged by some kids. Well, anyway, things like that happen in every school. It seems that children like to break stuff.







I even did a bedside furniture with X-MEN pages. As you can see I put there my Alan Moore collection of hardcovers and paperbacks. He deserves it.
