It was created by a group of Dutch artists in the early 1990s as a user and environmentally-friendly alternative to resin. It is now the largest-selling brand inthe world- used for art, crafts or traditional paverpol sculpture by artists and crafters in more than 20 countries!
Paverpol fabric hardener adds a whole new dimension to the way artists work by providing a new essential for their toolboxes! This one-step water-based creme gives sculptors, dollmakers, mixed media artists, painters, interior and exterior designers, theatre set crews, quilters and fabric artists a serious new medium to expand their scope of work, either indoors or outside.
Paverpol can be used with fabric, paper, paper mache, silk, metal, air-dry clay, chamois leather, baked polymer clay, plaster, concrete, pottery, stone and more. And unlike most other hardeners, Paverpol will not deteriorate polystyrene foam.

Paverpol... the new essential for every artist's toolbox!
In this class, you will create a sitting figure of your own design for your home or garden. Let your creative spirit soar with new techniques and materials that will expand your abilities in 3D art! Using all non-toxic materials and common household items, you will learn how to create a human form by fleshing out a wire armature and sculpting with aluminum foil. Once your form is complete, you will wrap in saturated cloth to cover, and use more saturated fabric to create dramatic drapes or the illusion of gentle motion. When you are happy with your pose and draping, you will embellish and customize your figure to make your own interpretation of “A Touch of Cape Cod.”
Cost: $79 pp & $15 materials fee
