Book 2 - Water For Elephants - working photos

These are just documentation, of where I'm at right now. There's more altering to come, and items to put into the cavity, and possibly stinky acrylic to be mixed and poured tomorrow, if the weather holds and I can leave the book outside while it cures (in lieu of an exhaust hood, I can leave it on top of the air conditioner, outside my window).

The mottling on the pages is from potato starch - I cut up a potato and placed the slices on the pages. I don't have any good info yet on how this will affect them. It does leave a light chalky residue, which I plan to brush off as much as possible.

The actual potatos will go inside. These are coated in a matte medium, for preservation and strength.
