I made this sketchbook with interior pages of 140lb Fabriano Artistico soft press watercolor paper. The cover is colored Mi Tientes and book cloth over Davey board. I just used acrylic matte medium as glue since I had it. I reinforce the spine with scrap tarlatan that I have around from printmaking. The end paper is just white drawing paper. I sewed the pages right through the spine in two signatures. It is a pretty easy way to make a sketch book.
I made this watercolor as a demonstration last night during the watercolor class I teach Thursday night at Maude Kerns Art Center.
