Faux Forged Metal Journal/Sketchbook

Jacqueline Sullivan
Sat AFT April 15

[back to quicklinks]
$ 100  

This great journal looks like it is forged from a piece of old steel, but in reality it is created using a fairly simple texturing technique done with metal tape, textural elements and acrylic paint. This technique could be applied to many book forms. In this class, we will develop our covers on bookboards and then adhere them to a ready made journal.

Materials Fee $15 paid at beginning of class includes:

The use of all Paints and mediums
 5” x 8” blank journal
Metal tapes
 Duct Tape
 Double faced tape
 Textural materials
 Book boards = pre cut
 Lots of tools to share

Supplies Needed  to bring for Class:

 Water container – at least 16 oz for rinsing brushes
Paint brush – 1” wide Golden Taklon brush recommended
Paper towels
