Well, I found a video on YouTube about how to bind books so I decided to try it out (still haven't gotten to the binding part). I wanted it to look like the Necronomicon, so i covered the front cover in polymer clay and carved out the face. Unfortunately, the clay shrunk in the oven, which in all honesty I should have foreseen, and the clay cracked right across the face in a couple of places. I fixed it up the best I could and painted it anyway. I like how it looks overall, but the ends of it curled up and I'm not sure I'll be able to complete the binding.

I really like it.
I even like the cracks, they make it look old.

I agree with everyone, I think the cracks add to it's character. I'd love to see it bound.

Wrong kind of nerd, I don't get the reference material, but I love the look of this anyway.
