Order of Alia Wizardry by BCcreativity Order of Alia Wizardry by BCcreativity
This is the spell book Helvo Hess took from the home of a Popumeth wizard that had passed on. The same spell book that the Bone Witch of Salama greatly desired. This is from my fantasy novel, Gollumeth-The Bloodline of Horredath.

The five cord book contains hand dyed goats leather, hand sewn end bands, marbled paper from my personal creations and hand tooled metal clasps. The interior pages are a natural parchment.

I am glad you like my creation. I do commissions if you wanted to have an idea come to life.
I love to translate others ideas into something they will love.
Cheers

Your books are very inspiring! Can I ask how you do the marbled paper?

Thanks for the comment.

To answer your question about paper marbling, I will break it up into sections.

1. after you have found your choice of paper, you dampen one side with Allum and let dry.

2. Mix carrageenan, which is an Irish moss ground to a powder, with distilled water. This solution will be your size. (What your paint will rest upon.) Let it set over night in a large flat tray about 2 inches deep.

3. Dilute and mix your acrylic paints with the distilled water to get a thinned enough consistency and spatter or drop them onto the size. one color at a time.

4. Run a marbling comb in various directions through the size to create the design. Lay the paper Allum side down onto the size from one corner to the opposite side slowly. Grab the ends and lift the paper and lay onto a board design side up. Rinse off the size with running water to remove excess.

5. place or hang paper to dry.

This is a brief description of how to marble. There are many techniques and other process to achieve the marbling process. If I were to be more descriptive, I'd be better of making a book about it.
I hope this will lead you in the right direction.
~Cheers

Thankyou! I have made a couple books myself but they are hardly as good as yours, and much less professional. But I am slowly learning more techniques and currently trying to make my own paper from recycled paper while making sure it's flexible enough to fold and sew, and then trying to marble it. I will definately try your technique.
Have you ever made your own paper?

I have made my own watercolor paper for a few projects. I do not do it often, but it is fun and somewhat addicting just like paper marbling.

I make books myself, but I've never managed to get clasps on my work. Wonderful piece of book art.

Thank you very much.
It is tedious work to create the clasps from scratch, but worth it in the end.

That final shot shows such a crisp clean work and the sewn in headbands look really good. Love the hinges; bold :)
