This time I used some very inexpensive craft brass wire, and sculpted armatures out of it. Then using masking tape and arcylic paints I managed to create the look I was after...the uni course had really helped me in this area - last term I was constantly using aluminium wire and newspaper to create built up mixed media paintings. ...but this is the first time I was able to make something like this on a book cover.
Accordion hinge album instructions. I made this one and was disappointed. I used index weight paper and it was just too stiff. If I try it again, I'll choose softer paper for the pages so that the cut edges don't get hung up on the hinges when the pages are opened and closed. Also, you have to fold the accordion hinge perfectly or else the spine is crooked.
