Here to tell you about the workshop I attended today.
I have so much been looking forward to this workshop.
I love Powertex products and have been keen to get started with them.
Some of you may have noticed the big yellow box advertising the:
Both Ali and Ian are certified trainers in the use of the Powertex products and we spent a great day in their Green Room (workshop) practising the skills of using the Fabric Hardener and the Stone Art materials and this is what we made.
Ian in the Green room explaining about a canvas which we will probably be making at a future workshop.
It's a bit difficult to show all the stages as we are wearing gloves most of the time so photographing had to wait for rest periods!
However for those of you who are not familiar with this technique we are using fabrics with Powertex fabric hardener.
To find out more go to Alicraftworkshops
At this stage we had covered the fabric in the hardener and wrapped it around a bottle.
You will notice that we had also added some embellishments enclosed within the fabric folds.
Here you can see one of the Stone Art pieces under construction.
And the finished pieces which were completed by adding various pigment paints and gilding waxes.
They are even better in the flesh.
Just a close-up of the bottle I worked on.
I love these techniques and can't wait for the next workshop in June.
If you need any further details just leave me a comment and I will get back to you.
Happy crafty weekend everyone,
