Now that I have crawled out of the plague pit, I have completed my embossed leather book and want to show you how it went so that you can create your own.
In this part, we’ll just take a look at the basic plain cover, which is nice enough to leave without decoration, if you like.
You will need
- book to cover (e.g. a notebook, preferably with a spine)
- thin plywood or thick cardboard
- PVA glue
- contact adhesive
- thin leather
- wood stain
- rounded modelling tool
- scissors and/or sharp knife
