I've got that centipede bug again. I have been experimenting with different cover treatments and discovered a technique that works really well to create a very durable and interesting surface. It's a process of layering papers, mediums and pigments onto heavy book boards. The results: an intriguing leather-like finish.
The materials used on these covers are vintage clothing patterns, satin varnish and a variety of brown pigments.
I can hardly wait to try out some other types of paper with this method. Oh the possibilities!
