Front off old book
Back of old book
Mix water and Elmer's glue to the consistency of thick milk.
Mark the center of your book and then flip to the back. Start gluing every 2-3 paged, Cake It On!
Make sure to go over corners.
Then put one on top.
Then, stack a few heavy things on top for a day if not longer. (I may have gone a little over board...)
Now, take an exacto knife or box cutter and cut down the center. You may need to do a little re-gluing after this.
Trace the book and cut two pieces for the book. Make sure to cut a thin piece for the binding.
Now paint the Gesso primer onto the book and let dry.
Gather your colors.
Sketch out your design and then do the background.
Use a paint pen for the words, it will be easier.
I hope that this was fun and inspiring. Good luck should you try this project! And don't forget, Always be yourself, unless you can be a Mermaid, then Always be a Mermaid!!
