Ceremonial Elephant 3D Fabric Sculpture - available in video format for you to create at home - by Inky Escapades



This is a home learning course where we will create a Fabric Sculpted Ceremonial Elephant 9" x 11" In these extensive step by step videos I will lead you through the process to add contours to the armature, cover the armature in recycled fabrics I then explain fully the colouring process. This price is for the Video Links and partial kit only £45 We will supply the Elephant shape glued to a base weighted with tiles. Alternatively I can supply a complete kit of everything you require to complete this project. Fabrics, 1kg Powertex - 6 Pigments of your colour choice, jewells etc for £67 FABRICS will always change due to the nature of recycled fabrics it depends what I can obtain at the time 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. In the case of fabric sculpted creatures they can go in the garden once dried for 3 weeks however to be on the safe side they would benefit from a coat of varnish. Obviously you can go at your own pace and can ask any questions at any time, via the 'Ask a question' button should you need to. The videos will be sent to you via an email link and you are reminded that they are for your own personal use only and are not to be replicated in any way.
