Powertex® was launched in Belgium in September 2001 and is now used by crafters, hobbyists and artists across the globe!
The medium is environmentally friendly, non-toxic, highly versatile, a water-based hardener that is compatible with a multitude of all absorbent and natural materials including paper, textile, leather, cardboard, fibreglass, wood, sand etc.
Powertex® will transform textiles into masterpieces! It really is a remarkable adhesive. You can easily create artwork, statues, paintings and even jewellery! Treated fabric can be draped, folded and manipulated into many different ways, creating wonderful masterpieces – perfect for crafters dabbling in mixed media.
You can also add colour to your Powertex® with the use of colour pigments. Statues and other various designs can also be painted with oil paint or a varnish mixed with powdered colour pigments.
Powertex® is a liquid medium that is ready to be used straight from the container. Use Powertex® to brush onto items or dip directly into the product for full coverage. It will remain flexible for quite a while, depending on temperature, but should be dry to the touch within an hour or two. Powertex® takes about 3 weeks to cure, making it completely waterproof for use outside!
