Handmade Book [Book 45]

This is a hand made book, the pages are made up of hand painted papers, music, maps, prints of work, envelopes, greaseproof backing paper etc The cover is hand painted fabric embellished with freehand machine embroidery and hand embroidery. I finished the book itself in February last year but didn't use it straight away, but I've been working in it recently and have almost completed it.


I forgot to take photos of the front and back straight on when I did the top two so I took the pictures of these just now [at night] when the lighting was not so good but the colour is not quite right.


Resist marks made with candle, then collage and painted

  1. Looking forward to seeing more of this book.
    I have never heard of, but see it is a very useful way, using candles for resist marks - in school we used waxy crayons.
