** A few additional notes **

If using Bristol for your pages, you do no need to sand your pages and
Gessoing is optional.

Large sheets (about 3' X 3 - 4') of box board are free for the taking from
large warehouse stores such as Costco and Sam's Club.  They can be
found separating the layers of Paper Towel and Toilet Tissue rolls.  The
stores just recycle these and the stock personal is more than happy to
help you pull the box board sheets out from between the stacks.  I
suggest you bring some very large rubber bands so that you can roll
them up and get them in your cart and car more easily.  The box board
can be cut down to size with a Utility knife or scissors.
Gather your materials and supplies
including box board.
Using either scissors or a Utility knife,
cut pages to 6 1/2" X 10 1/2".
You will need at least 4, but make as
many as you like.
- Several cereal/snack boxes, box board or
Bristol (a stiff dense paper that can be found
in most craft stores)
- Medium grit sandpaper
- ruler
- pencil
- Scissors or Utility knife
- If using a Utility knife, a cutting mat to  
protect work surface
- 2" natural bristle brush (as found at home
improvement centers)
- Gesso or household primer
If using cereal or snack boxes one
side will probably have a shiny
printed surface.  Sand this both
horizontally and vertically.  Not all
of the image needs to be
removed, but you must at least
sand it enough to break the gloss.
Gather the following supplies before beginning this project -
Lightly coat both sides of your
pages with a coat of Gesso or
primer. The pages with images
need not be completely obscured.
"Over The Edge" page prep
For this Workshop you should prepare at least 4 pages.
Completed book can hold 25-30 pages.
* Please note that "Liquitex" brand Gesso is not recommended.  While it may be
a fine product, it does not seem to be well suited for this particular project.
