Easy Structure paste techniques

I use Easy Structure to introduce a range of texture techniques into my mixed media art. Easy Structure from Powertex is a heavy paste that sets hard and can even hold embellishments and deep textures. With Easy Structure you can make hard wearing layers that don’t peel off and can be given some heavy mixed media treatment.

Powertex Easy Texture techniques

In this quick demo I use Easy Structure with Powercolor powder pigments, small 3d texture balls and palette knives.

This is just a glimpse of some of the ways I use Easy Structure paste although almost all of my textured art has it. I love to layer up different colours and marks with different tools to create an organic surface.

I recommend experimenting with different ways to apply the paste including palette knives, clay shaping tools and plastic items. Try them wet or dry for different effects. Mixing in different textures from sand to fibres has lots of possibilities.

Create some abstract textures or backgrounds with Easy Structure in your Powertex art. If you are new to Powertex take a look at my blogs for beginners to get you started.

Easy Structure is just one of many texture products I use and my Easy Structure eBook describes how I achieve different effects. This eBook shares the techniques and tools I usually teach in my workshops. It’s an instant download (This download also includes a bonus guide to how I make my Rusty Powder fluid paint!). Take a look in my Etsy shop. If you love textured mixed media art, you might like Powertex Rusty Powder.

I’m a Powertex tutor in the UK, I get my supplies from Powertex UK.
