Wow! I absolutely love this craft idea. Gilded book edges have long been a stylistic choice of printers everywhere, but they’ve got nothing on this galaxy book edge! I never thought it would be as easy as painting… but it literally is just painting book edges. The video below walks us through step by step, from dusting down the book to taping up the edges, and even painting methods. By using the dry brush technique, you can transfer color onto the edge of the page without introducing water and moisture to the book, which could potentially damage or warp the pages. Talk about a game changer.

The galaxy and floral patterns are classic, but I can’t wait to customize books with my own unique designs! What will you paint first?
