Steampunk Book by TimBakerFX Steampunk Book by TimBakerFX
I finally finished the details and paint on this book cover. It took long enough to finish but as of today it is :D I'll submit it to the Spectrum competition this year. Leather, brass, hand made paper, resin and glass

if I may ask, what paint did you use for the cover?

I'm also making something similar to this except the theme is vintage.. and Im kinda new to mixed media so I was wondering what paint I could use for the cover that wont create some sort of smudging when you hold it or wont crack or something (like acrylic,when its too thick)

anyway, this is an awesome book.. I like it especially the contrast of the blue map thing with the other design elementsLa la la la

It's a fantastic book!
Do you have any pictures of side your books? Once everything has arrived I am going to make my own book and it will help a lot if I could see how the pages are attached inside the cover

This piece is older than that film,  so perhaps they should remind you of mine?   ;P

That's a very good point! Yes, they nicked your idea, those thugs! Rage
Just kidding. It is a really cool piece - the whole journal cover series is lovely.
