Tissue Collage Sandals by Tiffany Windsor - 1 For my project, I used hand-painted tissue papers. Rice paper also works well for this technique. Select a paper that is soft yet durable.

Tissue Collage Sandals by Tiffany Windsor - 3 Brush Aleene’s Collage Pauge on wrong side of painted tissue.
Tissue Collage Sandals by Tiffany Windsor - 4 Lay paper over sandal strap.
Tissue Collage Sandals by Tiffany Windsor - 5 Brush another coat of Aleene’s Collage Pauge on top of tissue paper.
Tissue Collage Sandals by Tiffany Windsor - 6 Cut off excess. Dip finger into Aleene’s Collage Pauge and rub it over the surface of the tissue until most wrinkles have been pushed out. I prefer to cut off excess along sides (rather than folding them to the back side because any wrinkles can potentially rub your foot.) Let dry completely.
