painted a flat blue then melted design into paint with soldering iron. then filled in design with touch up paint of a darker color. then resprayed light coat of the flat blue. then used a water color black marker rubbed on the tip of a glove the rubbed on the book to create a worn look.

Impressive. You do deserve a C, how long did it take you to do all that work?

a few hours cause i had to let it dry between coats of paint. if you dont count the drying time, the actual work was probably 1.5 to 2 hours. filling in the design with the darker blue touch up paint took the most time.
