My Third Watercolor Journal with Dye Painted Book Cloth
I made my 3rd watercolor journal with another piece of fabric that I dye-painted - this time striped using corn dextrin resist with procion MX dyes. This is a 6 X 8" watercolor journal containing Fabriano Artistico 140 lb Soft Press paper - 6 signatures with 2 folios each. The bookcloth was prepared by fusing my fabric to Thai mulberry paper using Wonder Under - see more about the method here.
I used color-coordinated MiTientes paper as end papers.
There is still one more piece of fabric that I made in this first batch, and since I'm now using a big roll of Fabriano Artistico paper, I will make a 4th book to gain more experience handling the big pieces of paper instead of the usual 22 X 30 inch sheets. There are 48 single pages in each book so will have enough watercolor journals on my shelf to last 5-6 months!
