Wow do I wish I had this, mostly for my book of shadows. MAN this is cool! So beautiful.
How do you make these books???

I would like to know the same thing as the people who commented above me. How did you put the poly clay on the book? Did you just put it straight on the book or make the tree and then attach it? Please let me know! I am making a book for a college project and I would really like to put some 3D designs on the front like you did!

Did you cook the polymer right onto the book by putting the entire book in the oven?

Love this!!

Your quite handy with clay there. I think I like your books the most of your work I have seen. Keep it up

Nice!
Just one teensy critique: The top of the tree really shouldn't touch the outer edge. But I know how it is - the design takes on a life of its own.
That's a great shade of green.

It's actually not quite touching the top, there's a few millimeters of room, but I took the shot with book tilted a bit. And you are correct, I didn't mean for it to be QUITE so close to the top, the tree became bigger than I originally planned LOL

Nice eh? Lovely emerald :D

Wow. I'd really love to see publishing companies do stuff like this instead of just the title and a picture. That is really awesome, good job.

It's pretty.
The size and thickness of the leaves makes it a bit toony, but it's still beautiful.

Thanks!

It was meant to be more stylized :)
