While I decided to tackle the Necronomicon as a surprise birthday present to a cousin that is a large Evil Dead Fan.
I found a link to 37 pages of images from the movies a great start
I used 37 lb card stock for my pages to give a beefy feel
test page to adjust colors and technique

The test page and the original
aged with coffee and heat (added more grounds to coffee to get darker look)

the setup paint on coffee in one pan, heat in another finish dry in last

added a personal touch for the intended owner with a burned inner cover pages with his initials

a few of the original pages in back ground and the aged pages in hand

Now to start on cover (print out of cover and a rough sketch on poster board)

Rolled up masking Tape laid on to sketch to add depth
beginning to cover with tissue paper

white glue and tissue paper next step is to fine tune the depth
paper-clay possibly

not sure if I am going to paint or cover in a thin leather type material??? any Ideas

going to drill the covers and pages out maybe 8 to 10 holes than lace the binding together

You can build up depth using paper towels soaked in glue. That's what I did with my budget necronomicon:



BTW, you know that your creating an Evil Dead 2 cover, with Evil Dead Remake pages inside, right?

I know it is the evil dead 2 cover, and the pages I have a combination of the 2 movies to fill the book with. I could only find about 8 pages from the originals. Also thanks for the tip using paper towels
