About Powertex

Powertex fabric and textile hardener,  is an environmentally friendly water-based liquid sculpting medium.  It is non toxic, vegan friendly and contains no acids.  It is ready to use straight from the bottle.

Powertex can harden absorbent materials such as textiles, paper, cardboard, fabrics, leather and fiberglass.  It can be easily combined with self-hardening clays, concrete, stone, ceramic, wood, sand 3D flex and Stone Art.

Powertex is used for making sculptures, paintings, wall art, decorative objects and jewellery.

Powertex Transparent is a white liquid that dries to a matt finish showing the original patterns and colors from the hardened fabrics.

You can create any Powertex colour by mixing various base colours or by adding Powercolor Pigments to Powertex Transparent/Ivory. Dissolve the pigment in a little warm water and stir into the Powertex.

Once dry your artwork can be decorated with oil paints, acrylics, latex or Powercolor Pigments mixed with Easy Varnish (this combination makes the paint instantly waterproof).

Powertex air dries but warm air from a  hairdryer or radiator accelerates the drying time.

Pre coloured Powertex is  already waterproof and items made with these can be placed in the garden after a 3 week drying period.  Items made using the transparent liquid will need to be coated in 2-3 coats of Easy Varnish before placing outside.
