Oculus by Madelei Oculus by Madelei
"Oculus" = Latin for "eye"

My own personal catalog of mediums/techniques. There are a billion others I could have included or haven't even thought of, so I just picked my favorites. :)

Book covers made out of polymer clay and found objects, painted with acrylics and Pearl Ex. Watercolor paper pages.

Wow this is an awesome idea, and Very well done! I was thinking of doing something similar, instead of eyes it would have been either dragons or fairies... possibly both. But unfortunately I can't draw or paint very well so the pages probably would have ended up being blank. :(
