Hi, thank you so much for the post, I have recently completed my first decoupage Spiderman Table, and as it was my very first take on the decoupage craft, it was the game of hit and miss. What I did first is after stripping and painting the sides of the small end table, I have carefully cut-out pictures from Spiderman Comic Book and glued them with very thin layer of wallpaper glue on top of the table. After that I have applied another layer of wallpaper glue on top of the pictures, yet they seemed to wrinkle. I had to Google what to use for the paper pieces, and thats how I had come across the decoupage term. I have then found recommendation of MOD clear glue and sealer for the decoupage. It worked like a treat, I have applied two layers of this glue sealer, as well as 3 layers of protective Beeswax polish. Heres the final product, hope you like it: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/300915109506?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
