I am busily working on homework almost every day in hopes that I might get everything I need to get done by December when we go back to class.
Today I made some faux leather out of brown paper. I used a variety of inks and then covered with two colors mixed with gloss medium. I think the result may be a bit too shiny. I still have to iron it again and see what it looks like completely flat. It is drying now. This is to add to a book that I am creating. There are a bunch of tutorials on how to do this if you’re interested. Basically, it is crumple up the brown paper, rub with brown inks, iron flat. Then coat with a medium such as gloss, matte or gel medium. I added a bit of brown ink to my medium to give it a deeper color.
This is actually what I have been spending the most time on this week. This is for my final project for class. So these are just a few sneak peeks of the beginnings. I hope you had a good week and thanks for stopping by.
