I wanted my own Necronomicon or other leather bound curiousity piece, so I started small.
Hope you like it!
Step 1: Start Making!
A small journal or book.
Rubber cement and gorilla glue (not pictured)
And of course various cutting utensils.
Step 2: Introducing the Gomer Demon!
It took me plenty of tries to get the face right. I trimmed the holes for the eyes. Once I was content, I used the rubber cement to glue the leather down small portions at a time.
Not a fan of the big buck teeth, and it reminded me of Goofy, so I decided to call him the "Gomer Demon"!
Step 3: Go Bigger!?
I suppose next step would be a bigger book for drawing, or more practice to make replicas of the more well known leather bound books. Either way, there is always interest.
Thank you for checking me out!
