The short answer
Powertex Universal Medium is a liquid fabric hardener. It’s water based and non toxic and carries the sought after AP seal. A range of complementary products is also available.
Powertex Universal Medium was developed as a fabric hardener. It’s water based, non toxic and environmentally friendly. This liquid medium and can be used for a variety of art and craft techniques from fabric sculpture to mixed media painting.
After curing for approximately 3 weeks, Powertex projects are weatherproof and can be put outside. This makes Powertex a great medium for creating sculpture, home decor including furniture or artworks for outdoors.
It’s available in a variety of mixable colours, including transparent and with a range of complementary products such as powder pigments and weatherproof varnish, it has a wide variety of applications. Note the transparent Powertex medium is not weatherproof and requires a varnish for outdoor use.
Powertex also produce a range of mixed media products such as Easy structure paste, 3D Sand, Stone Art, Rusty Powder, Bister and Powercolor pigments. The MDF kits are brilliant for beginners and children or crafters looking for a base for a project. Visit Powertex UK to see the range of products available.
Most of my artworks are on canvas and use the mixed media products to create interest. I use fabric and card with Sand, Balls, StoneArt and Rusty Powder for unbeatable textures.
