Designer: Jill Cullum
This month, for my article I was asked to do a ‘remake’ of another design team member’s step-by-step article. I love canvas work and came across this Powertex winter scene by Kore Sage, whilst searching through the vast choice of inspiration. I immediately fell in love with the effects, decision made!
- Powertex Fabric Hardener in Ivory, Blue, Bronze and Transparent
- Stone Art
- 3D Sand
- Powercolour Pigments in Light Blue, Orange, White and Burnt Sienna
- MDF window and tree from own stash
As I worked through the step-by-step instructions, inspired by making the initial background of the scene, lots of other ideas were popping into my head.
I started with the landscape and although I have used Stone Art many times, I hadn’t used it with a coloured Powertex before which had brilliant results.
I didn’t have the same window as Kore had so as you can see, my piece is slightly different including an mdf tree. The snow effect is made with Ivory Fabric Hardener mixed with 3D Sand which gives a great texture.

I love to find inspiration in other artists’ work which is exactly what doing this piece has done. I cannot wait to get started on my next canvas, possibly a field scene.
If you like the finished canvas and feel inspired to create something similar, please have a go at using the step-by-step articles on the Powertex UK Mixed Media Magazine. Be inspired by other artists and then to do your own version of it. For Kore’s full step-by-step instructions one how to make a winter scene, please see here.
Bye for now and thank you for taking a look at this month’s article. Have fun and don’t forget to share your work in the Powertex Studio. Jill x
