Paverpol is an environment friendly fluid used to make fabric rock hard. Its original colour is white, but it will dry as transparent in a few hours. Paverpol artwork is weather resistant after hardening completely. It will withstand rain, wind, sun, snow and frost. Hands and tools can simply be washed in warm water. Just dip natural materials such as textiles in 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 working time. After it has hardened, you have created a beautiful decoration or sculpture which can be used indoors as well as outdoors, It sticks very well with paper, silk, chamois leather, self-hardening clay, polystyrene foam, dried flowers, wood, plaster, pottery etc except plastic.
Students will be taught how to construct a basic wire frame for a sitting lady. From that frame, they will be taught how to build up the frame with tin foil and later how to use materials to dip into Paverpol (Fabric Hardener) and wrap their sculpture. Lasty they will learn how to dress the sitting lady or some students may wish to make a sitting boy. All materials will be provided and are included in the course fee.
