POWERTEX

is a water based product, 

an environmently friendly alternative for polyester

it hardens all absorbent materials and with the complementary products in its' range, and other mixed media - the creative and artistic possibilities are infinite

  

I prefer to work with gloves, but you can perfectly well work without

wash your hands with warm water to remove powertex easily

wear bad clothes and shoes

protect your crafting desk and floor with plastic foil

do not poor Powertex or clean remainders in your sink !

let your artwork dry on plastic during 6 weeks in a dry room of min. 16 degrees

regularly turn your artwork to dry at all sides

REMOVE FROM EGG MOULD

  

CREATIF ALTERNATIVES 


IF THE ABOVE IS TOO DIFFICULT TO PREPARE
INSTEAD E.G.

MAKE A BODY OF FIRMLY SQUEEZED ALU FOIL
OR
USE A STONE
OR USE AN 16CM EGG AND FILL IT WITH SAND/STONES
...

INCORPORATE/BUILD UP BOTH WITH THE WIRES

TO OBTAIN A SIMILAR BASE

DECORATION

CORDS

 LEGS
USE 3 M THICK TWINED CORD & UNTWINE partly

see video
or use
9 M THINNER CORD SINGLE AND CUT INTO 3 PARTS

instead


FOLD THE 3M LONG CORD IN THE MIDDLE

 

PUT THE MIDDLE ROUND THE NECK OF THE DEER

JUST ABOVE THE ARMS' / NECK KNOT

WRAP THE CORD

ABOUT EQUALLY WINDING IT ROUND THE BODY DOWNWARDS
PRETENDING THIS IS HIS KNITTED PULL

 

THEN START TWINING THE CORD ROUND EACH LEG

UNTWINING THE TRIPLE CORD

MAKE A KNOT WITH THE 3 PIECES OF CORD @ EACH HIP SIDE
THIS TO MORE EASILY HOLD THE CORD INTO POSITION

AND START BRAIDING THE CORDS IN AN IRREGULAR WAY
ONCE ON TOP & ONCE UNDERNEATH THE WIRE
MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT SEE THE ARMATURE

IT DOES NOT HAVE TO LOOK PERFECT - JUST PLAYFUL

USE A PIECE OF PAPER TAPE TO WIND ROUND THE CORD ENDS
