Create a unique garden sculpture in one day!
Upcycle an old t-shirt to make your own “one of a kind” standing figure. No experience is needed – it’s fun and easy using Paverpol, a water based, non-toxic textile hardener, to make your fabric art sculpture weather resistant.
Wire Armature (skeleton or stick figure)
Your sculpture begins with a wire frame (skeleton).
Foil Wrap (3D shape)
Next strips of aluminum foil are wrapped tightly around the wire to put together the basic shape of your sculpture.
Apply & Paint (skin & clothing)
Once you like the appearance of your sculpture, the real creative fun begins! You’ll “Get gooey with the Paverpol!” Strips from your old t shirts are dipped into Paverpol then wrapped around the piece creating a “skin”. Then you’ll use more T-shirt strips to add clothing to your figure.
As your figure dries you’ll learn the ‘dry-brush’ paint technique used to highlight your sculpture and take home highlight paint in the color of your choice to apply to your sculpture after it has dried/cured for two weeks. Your figure needs to air dry for a few weeks to allow the Paverpol to cure before painting so it’s weatherproof and ready for the outdoors.
