powertex sculpture

last month i was fortunate to have brigette thompson instruct me
in many techniques with powertex
our first project was to construct and dress a sculpture
making a wire skeleton, wrapped with foil and masking tape
and then the fun of "mummy" wrapping with cotton strips and powertex
( it reminded me of making mud pies as a kid)
once the sculpture was hardened it was fun to "dress her up"
i chose to leave her hair natural and created a book out of cardboard and paper
and highlighted with a bit of gold powder and varnish
next post i will show you my project with stone art and powertex
