Powertex Universal Medium is a unique product that has completely changed the way I make art. I love to create textures and layers but Powertex opens up a whole new range of techniques and results. Whether I’m painting large canvases or creating something crafty, sharing how I use Powertex Universal Medium is a big part of what I do!
However, when I started, I experimented a lot and made some huge messes before I understood how to use it well. There were a few basic things that really helped once I had them figured out. There wasn’t a Powertex UK Magazine to read when I started and I hadn’t taken any workshops so I was finding my own way. Take a look in the Powertex Gallery to see some of my latest creations.
