|Japanese Stab Bound Book with Encaustic Cover|
Now that I have so many encaustic papers which I made on a hot box I want to use them and here is one of the uses, a Japanese stab bound book. I adhered the encaustic paper to a sheet of watercolor paper using PVA glue. Not sure if I will continue using PVA or not for adherence. I am trying different techniques to see what I like best. It seemed to work but time will tell after a bit of wear and tear. I did try it on a small piece of watercolor paper and the encaustic started to peel off. So I might be back to square one on what glue to use.
Lovely, so rich and I love your bindings. Envy actually.
Hi john, this is simply exquisite! I’ve been cutting my encaustic papers up for collage; and have framed and few pieces..did not think of binding a book!
I think i mentioned that the only way i can get encaustic pieces to adhere is with a glue stick.
What did you use for your paper with the wax?
Aleene’s Tacky glue or YES paste?
Also, curious about the paper type.
It is gorgeous.
I am so curious about the process- it sure made for a beautiful cover.
