I mix the paste, usually from Elmer's Art Paste or pure Methyl Cellulose - so clear and smooth - and no cooking! I've tried other methods (cooking methods) of paste making, but this is my favorite. Then I choose the colors and ribbons. If I choose the ribbon first that I want to sew into the book, then I can mix the paste paint colors to match. I use Golden's and Liquitex Acrylic paints (heavy body and/or fluid) to paint my covers.
