X

Description

Come and create this fabulous Highland Cow Head Sculpture using Powertex Stone Art Clay and fabric sculpt the finish (hair/Fur) Anyone with a reasonable degree of dexterity, can create this. no experience necessary - This is a quite challenging subject because of the repetitive nature of adding the hair This is a long day it will finish between 5 AND 5.30pm this also requires a 1.5 hour colouring session approximately 2 days or so later - please advise when you would like to book this date in via email NB: THIS IS A TWO SESSION WORKSHOP NB: This is also available as a video tutorial see alternative listing I will lead you through creating the armature and then adding Cotton Threads. We will use stone art clay to cover the armature and for the features {It is advisable to complete this project over two days to allow for drying times You will need to leave your Cow with me overnight to allow to dry before colouring. I am happy to facilitate this in an evening if you prefer In the one to two hour session I will show you how to colour the Highland Cow 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.

My Powertex workshops will give you a window into your own personal creativity. I will offer you the tools and instruction to create fabulous works of art; beware though as Powertex is a very addictive hobby and you may find yourself consumed by its magic.
