Shelly Osborne (@so_creative on Talk) will be starting up an exciting series of classes on July 1st; a multi-class series on tooling and dying a Midori Style Notebook.
From the description:
Course One: Beginning with a simple 8.5x11 line drawing, the lesson will cover sketching 2 tall pine trees in the foreground, a stream and river banks that trail off into the midground and become lost in a long mountain range. The sky will be tooled into clouds and an imaginary “Moon” hanging out somewhere in your background.
Once the line art is established, the class will trace to vellum and transfer to the cased and bordered leather, their design.
Following the pressed image with the swivel blade, the students’ book cover will soon be ready to pound into a more fleshed out scene.
Lesson 2 will go over coloring/dye/staining your book cover.
There are many things to discuss before we slather your image in colors. We will cover what I have learned first hand in this stage of the project and how to avoid pitfalls in the process.
There are also work days planned by the instructor.
