Introduction to Paverpol
I’m always on the lookout to find new materials or techniques that I might use in mixed-media art. While at the Calgary Creative Stitches & Crafting Alive Show I came across a booth with a representative offering courses in the use of Paverpol to create garden-safe sculptures. My sister has created a couple of sculptures and they combine fibre empregnated with a material that hardens it to a waterproof structure. I have never encountered an opportunity for a course previously so I immediately signed up.
Brenda Topley of Black Sheep Design Studio introduced her ‘beginner’ students to the material and each of us left with quite a credible sculpture at the end of the day. ‘Miss Matilda’ was my creation.
I loved the result but it’s not something I want to incorporate into the work I am doing at this time. In the future it may be right for a particular construction requirement and I’ll keep info about this product for future reference.
