GENERAL POWERTEX INFO

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
