Blue Book done and others
The interior contains 60 pages (actually five signatures) but the watercolor paper is so heavy that the finished book is an inch (2.54cm) thick. I've made a couple of other books...some similar and some not so, and I've loaded them with Charcoal paper, so it's still a good quality paper but not as heavy, therefore making for more pages inside.
The book that I completed that is similar, using the same elements but other paper is shown here. It's the same surface size, roughly 4 1/2 inches by 3 3/4 inches. The beads are a combination of glass, metal and the majority are polymer made from leftover materials used in making the covers.
pink in stuff. The way that the colors merge on their own is appealing to me. It's one of the things about polymer clay that is a tiny bit unpredictable, but oh so much fun when you get those unexpected happenings.
