Wednesday Wellspring: Soft Shell Crafts

Bubbling up from the well this week, an original from Soft Shell Crafts!

Today, one lucky winner will receive a hand-made sketch book. The cover is made from salvaged foam core and is covered with painted canvas. Representing the flag of Japan, the cover is hand painted with water based, acrylic painted. The pages are 80 lb. Strathmore Drawing paper, perfect for drawing or sketching with dry media or ink. The paper is acid free and has been hand torn and folded to size. The book is hand bound with black waxed thread using the coptic stitching method. The classic exposed spine allows the book to lay open flat.

You can find Soft Shell Crafts locally at the following shows:
- Mayday! Underground at the Main Street Armory on Nov. 5th
- Art Garage Sale at Lovin' Cup on Nov. 13th





Please take a moment and vote for Soft Shell Crafts Mt 6 : Drawing (Item #18) at the Handmade Gift Guide poll this week. Voting closes at 11:59pm on 10/30.
