This is a Face to Face session course in which I will lead you to create this magnificent Sea Serpent or Dragon.
I will show you how to create the armature and clothe it in Powertex Stone Art Clay. Once it is dry over approximately 4 days you will return to create the Fabric Sculpted Sea and then complete the colouring.
You may omit the sea if you prefer but you will still need to leave the Sea Serpent/Dragon to dry before we can colour it so that we do not run the risk of damaging the project.
10am until 5/6pm 1st day
10am until 2pm 2nd day
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 Stone Art creatures you will be shown how to create the Stone Art Clay and then the armature for the creature then how to clothe the armature in the clay - This creature can go in the garden once it has been dried for 6 months and has been coated in varnish
I will supply all materials, including gloves, 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 which is where the magic happens!! You can't believe the difference it makes!!
Some workshops exceed the finish time by as much as an hour please allow for this when booking.
This workshop takes place over two sessions as the stone art clay creatures need to dry off before you can colour them
The Sea Serpent needs a 2nd 4 hour session to create the fabric sculpted sea or you can omit this step if you prefer in which case its another 2 hour session for the colouring.
This is where the magic happens!
Please make sure you book both sessions when you book your workshop the 2nd session is at no extra cost
