Powertex Hedgehog or Squirrel Sculpture - Fabric Sculpted - by Inky Escapades
Come and create this fabulous 3D Hedgehog or Squirrel using Powertex to fabric sculpt the finish. Anyone with a reasonable degree of dexterity, can create this. no experience necessary - These are quite challenging subjects because of the repetetive nature of adding the spines on the Hedgehog and the sculpture of the Squirrel tail Please advise by email or message which of the sculptures you would prefer to make NB: They are best created over 3 sessions - to allow drying time in between stages. 6 hours plus 2 hours plus 2 hours I will lead you through creating the armature and then adding fabrics (most fabrics are recycled). We will use a little stone art clay for the features You will need to leave your competed Hedgehog or squirrel with me for up to a week to allow for fully drying In the two hour third session I will show you how to colour the Hedgehog using pigments and water based varnish ( this is the wow factor) Let me introduce you to the wonderful world of Powertex. It is a water based, non toxic and environmentally friendly universal medium it is a liquid essentially a paint and glue combined and it is a fabric hardener, used to create 2D or 3D sculptures. Where possible I use recycled products and recycled fabrics. I haunt the charity shops for 100% cotton clothes to use in my art works. I also use broken jewellery and often re-cycle and re-purpose many items. I will supply all materials, including gloves & apron since Powertex is a messy, but extremely creative business. I will guide you through the construction/creation of the piece and the colouring process. Workshops start at 10am, break when all the wet work is done, so they can be dried off, and then we start the colouring, this is where the magic happens! Sometimes workshops exceed the finish time by as much as an hour please allow for this when booking.
