Powertex Daisy Bowl

I have been having more experimental fun with Powertex.

I used the Powertex Daisy moulds and Stone Art to make clay daisies and leaves. The bowl was created with clear Powertex and a recycled cotton scarf (I used a glass bowl covered in cling film as a mould).

I then used up some of my left over Powertex colours (Terracotta, Lead and Ivory). I just had small amounts left in my bottles and it will be a while before I get the chance to use them. I brushed over the dried bowl with the lead colour to highlight some of the raised texture. I then added sand and balls and glass seed beads. I  made a paste with kitchen paper and Powertex to make a 3D ‘glue’ to stick on and hold the floral embellishments. I sprayed on some black Bister to add shadow to more of the deeper crevices. The after drying, I used the gold colour into the Easy Varnish to dry brush and pick up the surface texture giving a metallic finish.

 

Materials:

Sheer cotton blue fabric (recycled scarf)

Powertex Hardener (Clear, Terracotta, Lead and Ivory)

Stone Art

Sand and Balls texture

Glass seed beads (gold)

Kitchen paper

Bister (Black)

Easy Varnish and gold pigment to colour

Mixed Media Canvas using Powertex and Pebeo Fantasy paints

Woohoo – just finished another canvas using Powertex for the fabric, hessian, and pine cones etc. I even added crushed egg shells to this one. Then filled the background using Pebeo Fantasy paints (Moon, Prisme and Glitter Vitrail). Photo doesn’t do it justice – lots of metallic gold and copper plus sheen and glitter sparkle with the paints (can see it a little in the close up). Fun!

A friend asked me to confirm how I stuck down and treated the cones:

I first ensured that the cones were fully dried out (about a month indoors) and stable (binned any falling apart etc.) painted the Powertex into all the crevices – a couple of layers. Painted the canvas with Powertex, then added all the Powertex treated stuff – sticking down directly onto coated canvas. Where needed I used treated kitchen towel bits to make a ‘3D gel’ to embed twigs & cones & make them more stable. Added more Powertex over cones so that more got down into crevices etc. Hope this helps if you would like to try out xxx

Powertex mixed media canvas

Good afternoon. I have been playing with Powertex and have created another mixed media canvas.

Powertex is a fabric hardening medium which can be used in mixed media and for creating 3D sculpture. I have got so many ideas and things to try. I am having so much fun with this medium. I have many more experiments ‘on the go’ including some fossil jewellery, more 3D vessels and canvases – will share soon.
