Hedgehog 3D Fabric Sculpted Woodland Creature 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 hedgehog approximately 11" long. This particular project is quite challenging and time consuming but such fun. In these extensive step by step videos I will lead you through the process to create an armature, cover the armature in fabric and mop head and create the facial features. I then explain fully the colouring process. I will supply basic ingredients to create this project assuming you already have Powertex. Alternatively I can supply a complete kit of everything you require to complete this project. 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.
