Working on the exterior

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?
