So, the book I'm using for my DragonCon scrapbook (scans of the pages are here: http://www.mindspring.com/~designbyluna/scrapbooks/dragoncon/
) is a plain, black, book covered with something called "leatherette." Looks like leather, but isn't, I guess. I was thinking, to go with the pirate theme, I'd paint a stencilled skull and crossed swords on the cover.
My plan is:
1. Make stencil. Done. I printed one off my computer on card stock and cut it out with an X-acto.
2. Use spray adhesive to temporarily adhere it to the cover of the book.
3. Use a sponge brush and white acrylic to paint it.
4. Spray acrylic sealer on to preserve it.
Does this sound like it will work? I have no idea what leatherette is so I don't know if acrylic paint will stick to it.
