This is what the instructions said:

"Home made blockout is made by simmering "Future" acrylic floorwax
in a pan on the stove until it thickens to a paintable consistency.
I add a little red food coloring to make the acrylic blockout visible.
Ammonia is the solvent for this."


I can't seem to find any info. on the ingredients of Future Floor Wax - hmmm - anyone else know what's in Future Floor Wax???

I'm a willing guinea pig though - I will have a go at it at some stage!!!  I'll keep you posted.

They look gorgeous!!  I like the one Cosmo is modelling - what a fantastic model too.  I agree, it's hard to find nice boys clothes! Cheesy

eemoody:  I cut the leather using a rotary cutter and quilters ruler.  Went through really easy.  You can also cut leather with ordinary scissors.  Here is one I did with the front decorated.  I used a leather punch (obviously with the letter "S") then used leather dye to paint the indented "S" then coated the square with a leather top coat then glued on the square of leather to the front cover using good ol' Diamond Glaze.



I also did another journal using an exercise book as the pages (rather than the handmade pages).  I cut the exercise book to 7.5cm wide then in half to get two "signatures".  I then used an ordinary drill and drilled holes in the "spine" of the exercise books.  Here's what it looks like - and as you can see from this pic, that the leather is not thin and the rotary cutter had no problem cutting through it:



If you want more info, let me know!! Grin

Great job Riley & Mum!!  I bet Riley is so proud of his work!!  As he should - what a project to tackle!!!

Echoing everyone's comments about raising crafty boys!!!  I'm teaching my 6 year old son to sew - he sewed two pillowcases, one for him and one for his little brother.  He's sooooooo proud of it.

Here is a journal I made today with the help of a friend who did a scrapbooking class.  The green doesn't show up too well  Sad but it is made from green raw silk and black faux suede fabric.







Here is a better view of the colour:
