SDBG Class   Spring Journal Book
Sunday, April 19
9:30 am – 4 pm


Create an extraordinary multi-signature, end-band, hand-bound book with inked and painted Masa papers. You’ll learn at least five techniques in this workshop including dropped-in watercolor, ink batik lines, Masa paper process, and book binding techniques to stitch signatures with end bands. We will explore a special batik-like technique with Masa rice paper to create the folios and cover papers with stamps, acrylic inks, and watercolor washes. This watercolor and ink method involves hue fusion, allowing the water to move color on the paper surface to create interesting values changes and textures. Colored pencils, ink lines, and collage elements will be added to embellish the shapes. The paper quality is ever so soft in the finished book is one you’ll love to pick up again and again.
