That is too cool!
hehehe.... btw: they aren't finished yet thats just the base Foam colourInteresting. And the little kids would think those books are a lot more comfortable sitting on than phone books at the kitchen table. Plus it wouldn't hurt as much with the phrase "throw the book at him".
I do like your use of white for the pages and the yellow bound cover.
what kind of foam is it?
if it's foam rubber, I'd do spray paint for a base coat and go from there. rigid foam, acrylics should be good
thank you!!Those look great! I love the fact that they are really lightweight and easy to store. In the past, I have always used cardboard for the cover of large books and covered it with toilet paper macher to simulate leather. It works well, but you end up with a hard outside.
Your painting on the covers is wonderful and i can't wait to see the brown one finished with the eye.
