What is Powertex?Powertex is a medium that might be a little hard to adequately explain, but I also feel that if you want to really understand and work with Powertex, it is something that should be taught ‘in real time’ – so either in person, or on a well-produced video. The videos will be coming 🙂 soon.
What is Powertex?
Powertex is a highly versatile product that makes most porous surfaces hard and weather resistant. This amazing product gives form and structure to cloth, paper, wood, gauze, concrete, plush toys, cardboard and more. It is so versatile and forgiving, it makes it easy for a novice crafter to create beautiful sculptures using only a wire armature and an old t-shirt. It is a liquid medium, ready to use out of the package. Items can be dipped directly into Powertex or brushed on. Once applied, Powertex begins to dry but will remain flexible for hours, depending on room temperature. While it is in this flexible state, Powertex can be draped, folded, pleated and manipulated in countless ways. Once the treated item has been cured, it will be hard and durable. It will also be weather resistant and suitable for use outdoors. (source: PowertexCanada)
