Paverpol Sculpting Medium
Paverpol sculpting medium is an environmentally-friendly hardener par excellence from Holland! It was developed by Dutch artists as a user-friendly replacement for resin. Dip fabrics into Paverpol. Drape or wrap the material around a wire figure or other armature and leave it to dry. Paverpol dries fast, but slowly enough to allow plenty of open working time.
About the course
Your sculpture will be a person in a seated pose, using a single color. Your “person” can be female, male, angels, or fairies, or similar human-like form. How they sit and how they are dressed is up to you.
In this introductory class you will learn the basics of a Paverpol sculpture. First, you’ll learn how to build the sculpture form using a wire frame and aluminum foil. It’s really easy – once Bev shows you her special techniques! Next you will dip your t-shirt material in liquid “Paverpol”. Finally you’ll learn how to wrap and dress the form with the t-shirt material.
After curing your finished sculpture can be displayed indoors or outdoors, even in our extreme north american weather. No need to bring it indoors for the winter. Your sculpture will add beauty to your yard or garden year round. Your neighbors might even ask if you’ll create a sculpture for them!
