Good afternoon. These are my first play with Powertex – 12 X 12 inch fossil themed canvases.

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 had a lot of fun creating these and have many more experiments ‘on the go’ including some fossil jewellery and 3D vessels – will share soon.
