This leather steampunk sketchbook we made to order specifically as a gift to the artist. The artist is a fan of the band Steam Powered Giraffe, so it was important for us to convey the atmosphere not only steampunk style, but also of this music! For this purpose we have developed a design for sketchbook in a similar style with the album of the group MKIII. Well, after the approval of the sketch we started thinking, how do we implement it in life
First we select the appropriate pieces of vegtanned leather, transferred pattern and emboss it. When leather pieces has dried we are using nail polish remover to transfer on it the vintage wallpaper pattern which we have already prepared and printed. After that, we with diluted acrylic painted strips of wallpaper. Finally it was possible to start painting!
Well and inside everything is practical
To make the painting resistance we covered it by varnish matt.
