Very cool idea. I hate to use gesso because it's expensive to replace but I like this base.
+Crafty Come Lately I found it much easier to start with one coat of gesso once i ripped that layer off. TFW

I am on a roll to finding this kind of notebooks. I live in south east asia & couldn't find those types of COMPOSITION books! It looks super nice & vintage even with the glossy finish! How does that makes it awkward? & tips on where to find it? 😭

shasha kina you can buy them on eBay
leonthesleepy (2 years ago)
You can look on amazon! I believe it costs about 2 bucks per notebook and you can buy them in a pack!
+shasha kina I am not sure if they go by different names in other areas of the world. Let me do some asking around and see if I can find out for you. Thanks for watching :)

Thank you for a wonderful tip,!
+Philip Klunk You are welcome :)
Great tip! I have done this before on other types of cardboard sign, but might have to try it on a composition book. Also, if you want to paint, but you think the paint will rub off, take a piece of sandpaper to the cover and ruff it up. I go in one direction first, then in the opposite direction, to create a hash mark like texture...the paint will grip on, and not rub off during use :)

Some of them don't come off easily. You can rough it up with sand paper too to get rid of the glossy if they won't peel.
+Reena O Thanks for adding that tidbit for anyone experiencing ones that wont peel easily :)

Interesting.... I've always just buffed it up with sandpaper.. to wear down the gloss.. which works well.. Never thought about peeling it.. TFW  cj
c j Plumb (3 years ago)
Totally understand... In my tiny home.. 375 sq ft.. If I need to do any thing like sanding.. I have to step outside...  Your idea of peeling the cover is very interesting and worth a try.. TFS... :D  cj
+mzscarlett12345 I had not considered buffing because I didn't want the dust since my art room floors are carpet right now.

Thanks for sharing.  The covering is like a giant sticker.
+Janet Baker yes but much less annoying to remove haha

Great tip! Love this. I've done this a couple times and it works great. I even added a piece of chipboard over the peeled cover for a super thick and heavy cover. Blessings!
+JJsJoyfulCreations oo great idea, I will have to try that out on one. :)
