I got tired of seeing the kraft cover of an old, Extra Large Moleskine Cahier so I thought I would give it a new look using some techniques I have used faux finishing my walls. Acrylic paint was used, including a subtle gold metallic vein which adds some sparkle but doesn’t show in the photo particularly well. The acrylic makes a nice, durable finish and does a good job of protecting the kraft cover.
