In August I was asked to create a Bat Mitzvah book. After brainstorming with a person practicing the Jewish faith, Ruth 1:16-17 was selected as the appropriate verse to use in the gift commission.
I printed out the verse on paper and created the mini-books.
Then I cut out the verses and coated them with encaustic medium.
It was important to keep each line in the correct order and ensure they would fit within each steel frame.
I cut the pages to size and adhered them to the book.
Soon the first one was completed.
With new creations, I always want to give my customers options, so I also created two other versions for them to peruse.
Sizing pages is pain-staking, which is why these mini-books are more pricey than my other pieces.
Working in tandem helped me learn more about various design elements.
These were admired by others on my way to delivering the final three.
Both the first book and the third book were snapped up within the week. So I got back into the studio to replenish.
Practice practice practice.
This one is still available.
This blue one accommodated smaller page sections before the printout spacing was fully figured out.
I have a new one on my desk.
