Powertex is a liquid art medium that will harden textiles or paper after curing. Powertex can be brushed on or items can be dipped directly in the Powertex. After about 10 minutes the textile or paper takes on a leather like feel. Depending on temperature, it will stay flexible for quite a while. Apply the treated fabric over an armature and create movement by draping fabric, or by adding folds or pleats. The unique properties of Powertex allows the item to hold its shape as long as the weight of the object is supported with an appropriate armature.
Powertex can be used as a painting medium on canvas, wood, metal, glass, and most surfaces. Combined with Powertex PowerColor dry pigments, an unlimited color spectrum can be created. Colors can be opaque or transparent by using transparent or ivory as a base and controlling the amount of pigment added. Texture and variety can be created by incorporating fabric, paper, organic materials, or Powertex Stone Art. Powertex works as the paint medium, adhesive, hardener, and sealer all in the process of painting.
