I had a papier mache book from Amazon which I gave a generous coating of white Gesso (might try black next time to see how it changes the look)
I then used Pebeo modeling paste and a comb to make the book pages, I then painted the pages with Pebeo Fantasy Moon in Pearl. The inside and outside of the book was given 3 coats of Pebeo Studio DYNA in Blue/Black (must always have a spare - my new favourite colour)
I then ran amok with Pebeo Gilding Wax Empire Gold (love this stuff). I also used it to edge the pages.
I made some charms from black and white Cloud Clay (can't remember where I got these moulds from ) I was going to paint them but the Gilding Wax was still sat staring at me so I gave it some - what a transformation they now look like metallic charms.
I made a black Cloud Clay skull and painted it with Pebeo Prismi in Onyx, that really made it shine. I also made a toad and coloured with Promarker moss green, a pumpkin coloured with Pebeo Vitrail Sunshine Yellow and Pebeo Studio in fluorescent orange. I then stuck down some feathers from my stash with Glossy Accents. When all my charms had been made, painted etc I played around until I was happy and stuck them down with Glossy Accents. Finally after much stroking and sighing I parted from some of my Steampunk charms which were also stuck with Glossy Accents.
