Powertex Giraffe Sculpture - Fabric Sculpted - by Inky Escapades - PO7 5HD
For this workshop you will make this beautiful Giraffe head and neck using Fabric Sculpting. This is a two day course and I will show you how to create the armature from glass bottle, polystyrene, wire, tin foil and masking tape and then how to add the recycled fabrics and create the detail using Stone Art Clay which is made from Powertex and Stone Art Powder. No two sculptures will look the same, each will have its own personality. 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 then the colouring process. You can't believe the difference it makes!! 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.
