There isn’t a lot of choice in small books. So the books I gave Shannon to work with had a lot more color than she usually uses in her book boxes—particularly for one as small as this. A light coat of spray paint unified the exterior and made it a little more understated, so that it would enhance and not compete with the interior. A light coat of Golden Fine Pumice Gel was applied before spray painting, to give the surface some texture. A little bit of gold mica powder was applied afterwards, and some of the paint was scratched off to emphasize the book titles.
The next questions will be: What windows to use? How to finish the roof? And how to landscape?
