what do you do to get the yellow pages smoothly on the canvas? Regular glue? Manual labour :painter:

I used an mdf board for this. It's really simple, just pva glue mixed with water.

it's so smooth! I want to try something like this but I'm afraid it won't come out as smooth lol

just give it a go... took me quite a few times to get it really smooth. Try adding some glue to the board/canvas as well as the newspaper and stick it down as quick as you can to avoid it wrinkling. Good luck :)

Looks like a good idea for a "polka trash" tattoo. Very dynamic and innovative concept especially with this newspaper - background. I really like it.:aww:
