How to Make Faux Books - Part 2

In this part of the tutorial we finish making the books out of foam.

Part 1 of this tutorial is here



Cut between the books

Now let's cut the lines that separate the various books.


Cut a groove

We do this by cutting a line between each book. The cut is made in three passes.

This creates a notch.


Note the groove

The whte lines in this picture shows the three cuts we make.

These two pictures are an exaggerated example so you can understand how to make the cuts. Your cuts, between your books will not be this pronounced.


First cut looks good

Ok! That first cut looks good. Do all the lines between all the books.


Sand the groove

Clean it up and round it out a bit with a piece of sandpaper.


Treat the tops

They look good.


NextLet's continue with the tutorial and paint them.
