Drawing & Painting Final Exam Book-Making Instructions
The Finished Book These are examples of what your book will look like when finished.
Let’s Make the Pages First You need – 3 pieces of 9” x 24” paper – 1 piece of 9”x10 ½” paper – White glue
Gluing the Pages together Apply a VERY THIN bead of white glue. Position the next page to overlap the bead of glue ½”. Thin bead of glue
Continue Gluing Continue gluing pages until you have one long strip.
Marking the folds Use the provided template. Place it the left edge of your strip of paper. With a pencil, draw a line along the right edge of the template.
Continue Marking Move the template to line up with the line you just drew. Draw a line on the right side. Continue until you have 14 sections.
Folding the Pages Begin with a valley fold to fold your first page. Valley Fold
Continue Folding You are making an accordion fold book. Use your pencil lines as your guide for folding. For each fold, reverse the direction of the book.
Continue Folding Continue the back and forth folding until all pages are folded together.
Marking the Last Page If your last page is a bit too big, you will need to trim it. Line the template up and with a pencil, mark the last page.
Trimming the Last Page With scissors, trim along your mark to cut away the excess paper.
Cutting the Handouts Using Scissors, cut each page of your handouts in half along the dotted line.
Gluing the Handouts in Place On the back of Page 1, apply a VERY THIN bead of glue only across the top edge of the page.
Gluing the Page in Place Press page 1 into place on the first page of your booklet. The page should only be glued across the top.
Continue Gluing Continue gluing your pages in place until all 14 are glued in. Be careful that you glue your pages in the correct order!
Painting the Covers Put your name on the back of 2 pieces of 9”x12” paper. To make abstractly painted front and back covers, you will need to use acrylic paint. Select analogous colors. – Colors that are next to each other on the color wheel.
Putting Paint on the Paper Once you have your colors selected, put a small dab of each color on one of your cover papers. You may want to include black or white as well.
Moving the Paint Around With a small piece of matt board, move the paint around. The more you mix, the more the colors will blend together.
Keep Going As you move the paint around, excess paint can be applied to your second sheet of paper.
Finished Covers When both covers have been painted, put them on the drying rack or in a safe place to dry.
Making Paste Painted Covers Paste paper is used to create a textured effect for your front and back covers.
Gathering Your Supplies You will need the paste paper your teacher has prepared for you. Select one color. You will also need a couple of texture making tools.
Adding the Paste Put a spoonful of paste on one of your cover papers.
Spreading the Paste Use a small piece of matt board to spread the paste around so that your entire sheet of paper is covered.
Adding Texture Use your tool to scrape and twist the paste around to make a desired texture. You can always smooth the paste and retexture if you don’t like your first attempt.
Set Aside to Dry The paste paper will need to dry overnight. Set your cover papers on the drying rack or in a safe place to dry.
Putting the Covers Together Place the piece of 10”x6 ½” matt board in the center of the back of your cover paper. Trace around the matt board with a pencil.
Marking the Corners Use a small scrap of matt board, lining up the edge of the board with the traced piece of matt board. Trace the outer edge of the scrap piece from one edge of the paper to the next. Repeat at all 4 corners.
Cutting the corners Using scissors, cut the cover papers along the marked lines. Save these corner pieces!
Gluing the Covers Put a fair amount of glue on the paper in the traced rectangle. Spread the glue to a THIN layer with a piece of matt board.
Press in Place Turn the cover over, firmly rub to secure the paper in place.
Adding the Corners Glue the cut corner pieces in place on the matt board, one at each corner.
Gluing the Flaps Put a bead of glue on the flap and spread thinly with a piece of matt board. Fold the flap over and press in place on the board.
The Finished Cover Your finished cover should look something like this one.
Adding a Ribbon You may want to add a ribbon to be able to tie your book closed. Use a piece of ribbon that is 36” long. On the BACK cover, across the center, apply a bead of glue. Center your ribbon and press securely to the glue bead.
Finishing the Back Cover On the back of page 14, squeeze out some glue. Spread thinly on the back of the page using a scrap piece of matt board.
Finishing the Back Cover Place the back of page 14 onto the back cover. – This will cover up the section of ribbon. Press firmly in place with your hands.
Finishing the Front Cover To protect your book, place a piece of newspaper or waxed paper under page 1 of your booklet. Squeeze glue liberally onto the back of page 1 and spread thinly with a scrap piece of matt board. Press your cover in place.
The Finished Book Tie your ribbon and your book is done!
