Gothic Binding (1300-1600)
This was my very first attempt to make a Gothic binding and I loved it! Making the brass furnishings perfectly straight proved to be quite a challenge but I’m happy with them for being the first attempt and for being under time pressure when I made them. Gothic bindings were often elaborately decorated with blindtooling, metal furnishings, fastenings, endbands and painted edges. On my book I chose to cut back on the decorations and fastenings but I couldn’t resist making the beautiful braided leather endbands which is one of the many gorgeous types of endbands that were common on these books.

raeva asked:

Hi there! I wondered what colours you usually use for the skin when using pro/flexmarkers? :)

Hm, let’s see.. I usually use satin, blush, ivory, almond, putty, sunkissed pink, tea rose, warm grey, pale blossom, dusky pink, light fawn. I probably missed some, but I guess I listed most of them :3
