FINALLY, i finish this. It seems like I've been working on it constantly for a week. Which *thinks* might very well be the case.
Springback, suede, linen, linen thread, gold and purple marbled paper, 4 silver forks, nails, cartridge paper, blood, sweat, love.
Hand-dyed everything (linen and thread, suede, paper.)
I've wanted to do something like this for a while, but I've gotten a bit sidetracked with commissions. Now i'm finally leaving the country and going back home to Aus, I figured it was time I used up as much of my materials here as possible. Originally, it was a for sale book, but it soon turned into a making a living can go to hell, it is MINE, MIIIIIIIIINE book.
All of the metal work was done by hand too. Hand drill, hammer, plyers, uber-clamp. Oh, to get back home and raid my fathers' workshop.
