This is the first process of making the book which we completed before lunch break, as you can see looks as if a mouse has been chewing on the centre but all will be revealed in the finished book. What looks like icing is in actual fact crackle paste.
This is the finished project, colours didnt photograph very well, in true colour very rich gold colours with touches of green.
What I really enjoyed about this project was learning to mix the Golden fluid colours together especially the gold with magenta or turquoise, colours came up like a very soft lumiere colour. Mixing water with the fluids gave lovely soft colours, just like water colours. Will be creating more with these mediums
I would recommend Beryl Taylor's classes to everyone, her art is inspiring, I will be making more of these books.
