Powertex Canvas

I had a nightmare yesterday morning with my powertex, it wouldn't mold, stick, dry or do anything but lie flat! I think it was too cold for it to work properly as it took 3 and half hours before I could do anything with it. I wanted to curl all the pieces like the couple you can see bottom left, but it just wasn't happening.

Later on we put the heating on and I put the pieces in the airing cupboard and eventually they dried.

I painted the face with DecoArt Dazzling metallics royal ruby. I mixed gloss varnish and deep coral primary elements pigment and dry brushed it on the fabric and cotton threads.

you may be having a nightmare getting your powertex to dry, but it's looking great when it does! Love the colour on this piece.

I think this looks pretty good! You are certainly teaching me a lot before I even have a go with mine, lol!
