I walked into a gallery where someone was demonstrating Paverpol, so I joined in, sat down and made a piece. I was hooked! Paverpol is a new environmentally friendly, water based sticky goop. With a special powder added, it withstands any weather and is almost unbreakable. (I often make clay faces which can be vulnerable.) Once I've constructed the basic figure, I wrap it with strips of any natural fabric soaked in Paverpol and wind them around the figure. (Old cotton t-shirts are ideal.) The paverpol hardens the fabric. The figure dries overnight enough to paint. I like to paint faux "stone"or "metal" or dripping verdigris to make them look more like natural stone. If you like messy, you'll love doing this!
