I graduated my second year in Fine Arts Academy. (Field: Painting) For my studies, ideas and more, I altered a children’s book. All photographs in the book are mine aside from page 1-2, 7, 18 and 23-24.

First I painted the cover with gel medium and paper scraps. The second layer is gouache. I wrapped the book in fabric and left it outdoors in my garden for a week. Then I unwrapped it, covered it with bistre pigments, acrylics and metallic paint. Once finished, I used a gloss varnish. (not in the video)
