Art and Soul Artists!
For any of my blog readers who will be taking my 2 day “Just in Case” class in Portland, I just realised that the image of what the front of the book looks like was not there.
So here it is...
Two suggestions for fellow artists doing the class,
Look out for 4 metal corners like these (for front and back) and
Look out for something you want to use as a closure for the book.
Here I used 2 brass pieces (which I aged) soldered together but it can be any type of closure or adapted closure like I did. I couldn’t find anything satisfactory at the time so I made this one up by soldering and by drilling a hole for the chain.
Also - If you want to use mica, as I have done there is a specific bookbinding tool called a microspatula that has taken me a year to find. I use it to split mica with – its brilliant.
Not specifically for that purpose but this has now become an integral tool for me.
So here is the link from Talas which you can order online.
Please buy the longer one and if you can get the teflon one – go for it!
