MDF Book

Remember my wooden book that Emma gave me for Christmas, well I couldn't wait to get started with it, so I did!! Just to let you know, this post is very picture heavy.

I gave it a coat of white gesso, used the cogs stencil and spread texture paste through it.

Gave it a blast with the heat gun to dry it off.

I loosely used the Fresco Texture Background with Crackle Glaze technique which Leandra show cased here.

I added Onyxite and Renaissance treasure gold.

Over the texture paste cogs and the edges.

And some more over the crackled area.

The edges.

More on the cogs.

I also swiped over the cogs with black memento ink to give them a bit more definition.

Close up of the inked cogs.

Stamped a Paperartsy script over the crackle in black stazon.

I used black stazon to stamp the T!m image from the Steampunk set.

And this is my finished book!!!
