Fabric Book Art
This is an extensive supply list. Please don't feel you have to purchase all of these supplies. You really just need fabric, wood, waxed linen to make the books. You will also need either Venetian Plaster (at Home Depot) or joint compound (you can get at any hardware store). Feel free to use your mixed media supplies you have on hand. I wanted you to see all of my supplies and you can add as you go as you wish.
masonite 1/8" thick or plywood 1/4". I cut my wood down to 6" x 8" pieces for my book cover. You can use any type of wood. I purchased mine at Home Depot and they cut my pieces.
You can also check Michaels or any craft store. Michaels has a section called Craft Wood Center and they have different sizes of plywood to purchase.
I go to all the vintage stores and collect vintage tablecloths, linens and laces. Old clothes ready to discard can make wonderful fabrics for your books.
Silk chiffon for ruffles, plaster bandages
Jacguard Inkjet Silk (optional) for printing images through your printer
Self adhesive Lineco Hinging tape 1 1/4" (optional)
