Hello there

I hope you are well and have enjoyed this lovely Summer.

So here’s the question……..

What do you create with the spare Powertex left in your tub?

You know that little bit you have left when you’ve been slightly too generous with yourself when you’ve been pouring out….

Here are a few of the things I use it for.

1. Coat a spare piece of fabric and a plaster embellishment and create a brooch.

 

These can either be coloured or left as the base colour so that you can colour them to fit into your future project.

 

 

 

 

 

2. Coat a spare piece of fabric, scrunch it up and let it dry.  You now have somewhere to try out your dry brushing colours before going onto a finished piece.  This is great if you want to try something a little different to your normal colour choices.

3. Take a strip of fabric, coat it with the Powertex and roll it into a flower.  Once dry these can be added into a future project.  Again these can be dry brushed at a later date to fit in with your project.

4. Mix it with Stone Art and create a clay,  double wrap this in clingfilm and store in a sealable bag or box and this will last for several weeks.  Alternatively sculpt it into a freeform shape or use it in the moulds to create embellishments.  Again these can be kept until you need them.

 

 

 

 

 

5. Create a Powertex mask.

Either let the Powertex set in the container or pour it out onto a non stick mat creating a more controlled design.  Leave to set then peel off.

 These can be added into projects to give even more layers and textures.

 

 

 

Here the Powertex was left in a round tub and gave a lovely curved effect to sit the skull into.

 

 

 

 

 

6.  Take some of your MDF embellishments, coat them with Powertex and apply Rusty Powder, spray with vinegar mix and leave to dry.  You then have ready rusted embellishments at your disposal

 

 

 

 

 

 

I bet you have other ways of using your Powertex,  why not hop onto the Powertex Studio facebook page and share your ideas with everyone.

 

Until next time happy Creative Adventures
