Clay MiniBook

This was a fun book to make. I used a baking clay for this minibook vs the air dry clay. After this stamped image baked, I used a little gold foil (I had a hard getting it to stick with tacky glue), metallic paint, inks, and a little glass paint for a shimmer.

I then attached an accordian of paper, drilled holes for the leather cord and attached the buttons I altered with alcohol inks.

This is the back of the book, gold ink was stamped prior to baking. Next time I want to press gold leaf (instead of the foil) into the clay with the stamp then bake it.

I like this very simple minibook. I use my minibooks mostly for quotes. These are dried leaves sandwiched between vellum paper, sewn and finished off with copper brads. This was a gift for my hubby.
