Handmade book, inspired by the famous videogame, made from real leather, the central piece is hand sculpted and cast in resin. Size of the book is 11 x 8,5 in. Feel free to contact me if you need anything!
I wish I could make something like this for cosplay. It looks amazing.
If there's a way purchase one one to collect I'll be glad to do so. And very good detail on this book.
How much? Can Be done similar for a wedding guest book? With text in the Back? Can you please send me a note with more information? Thanks!
It's amazing! I would should want one if I could.
Awesome! I love this
Beautiful work, I love the designs!
hi just wondering if you have tried to cast yet? and how much it the book
Oh could not find the time! I got a big artisan convention coming up! Hard to find some time to do research and development! Thank you for reminding me though!
whats the price but i would like the Crest (central Piece) to be made out of steel or iron
I only can cast in resin or pewter. Not equipped for casting in steel or iron, I wish I could!
Dam is it possible for me to remove it without damaging it? Or I could give you a sight that can show you an easy way to cast in aluminium can't remember if you can do it the same way with steel tho haven't watched it in a while
If you know a good tutorial, I can take a look if there is anything I can do! Thank you!
Thank you very much!! This is a really interesting tutorial! Now I got to ind time to make an homemade furnace!! Still, for pewter, a simple mold like this, and a propane torch melting pot could do. Did it mention what type of sand should be used?
sorry for not replying earlier had a lot on my plate lately,
i haven't watched it in a long time but it should be in the description or in one of hes other tutorials if its not there try looking through the comments, there should be someone that's asked the same question
This is a beautiful book, should say all of your books are beautiful. I have a couple of questions when you have a moment. One, what is the price of this book using the weathered paper and 120 pages? Two, I am getting started with bookmaking; still learning by trial and error. Can you provide some resources or any other source I can learn proper methods of bookmaking?
Beautiful! What's the price?
So cool! How much is it?
This is so awesome!
I'd love to have an Akatosh book
I'd love to have an Akatosh book
OMG I love it - whats the price? >
I do love the depth of your cover designs. I to have thought of casting ornaments in resin. I will try this a bit later, if you don't mind me using the inspiration for my future work. I'm still new at book binding.
Not at all! Inspiration comes from everywhere! And bookbinding is a try and error process, you can read and watch tutorials all you want, its only when you have the books in your hands that the true learning process begin! Resin is a new thing for me, I still have to try more of it!
I'm a puppet and prop maker by trade mostly. I've used so many different materials but still come back to metal and leather as my favorite mediums. I did a project for a touring Titanic exhibition with a team of makers. We produced most of the detail on the staircase hand rails using a quick set resin. We made silicone molds and cast the pieces which set in 20 minutes. Some pieces were pulled from the molds and bent to shape before the resin set. Resin is wonderful medium to simulate so many kinds of effects. Trying to find similar materials over here is still in the process. You can also use found details and add to them before making a mold. I want to try this with found stuff from op shops. This is all so exciting.
I've just added a couple more books to my gallery.
Must go now and make some books to sell or I won't online much longer. If your outgo is bigger than your income, your upkeep will be your downfall...........~
I't nice to make contact with a fellow book binder who doesn't run with the pack.
want want want but broke broke broke
This is awesome !
