Next, you will want to separate your paper towels into 1 ply. Once you do this you will want to moisten them with a couple of drops of water. Squeeze out any excess. You will want it to be barely damp.

Then, place the book open with the hardcover sides facing up.

Apply a layer of mod podge on the book and begin applying the paper towel in small sections to the cover, back, and spine.

You want to make small wrinkles and work the pieces around any lettering.

Use the hairdryer for about 5 minutes to dry. If you don’t use a hairdryer, you will need to let everything sit overnight and it could take a few days.

Use a sponge paintbrush to apply black paint to the entire cover, back, and spine of the book.

Use the hairdryer again for about 5 minutes to dry the paint.

Use the small bristle brush to apply metallic paint to the lettering and any embellishments that were applied. Try mixing golds and silvers for a really interesting look.

Finish your craft by adding gems or wrapping in ribbon/suede.

Pro-tip for making DIY Spell Books: I find a “dabbing” motion to be most helpful with this craft … for all the painting steps.
