Some craft products open your mind to possibilities, I don't think that this was originally produced for the crafting world but heavens I'm pleased it got to us. Powertex makes my brain hurt, yes thats right, my brain is bursting with ideas and possibilities of what I can make next and how it will make, so my brain hurts in a good way.
I wasn't sure is this book idea would work but it did as you can see.
I love how the folds of the material work. I used a hard backed book as I also wanted it to be able to stand up.
I called it a secret book for a couple of reasons, one of which is that it started life as a Mason book, Masons are said to be a secret society or is that a society with secrets. The second reason is in the next image.
A secret compartment cut into the book. The Powertex also works as not just a fabric hardner a paint but also an amazing glue too.
I used mica powder to add colour to folds and add the gold leaf effect at the edges of the book pages.
