Making my own sketchbook

Updated: Sep 11, 2019

Good water color sketchbooks are hard to find. If you’re lucky to live in a place that can make you a hardcover book with the paper you like, you can make your own. And that is exactly what I did.

I cut 2 sheets of arches watercolor paper and made a 20 page sketchbook. So far, I'm loving how it looks. Next step is to bind it and make a hardcover for it. It is 6" x 8 1/2" landscape format.

Sowing the pages together into signatures, you then take the signatures and glue them together. There are many ways to do this, you can also sow them together.

An update post will come soon with scans of the pages and whatever I sketch on them. Haven't decided yet.

Follow me on Insta & see more updates on this and other sketchbooks!
