Let’s Get Organised by Abigail Lagden

 

It’s been a magical summer for me running many workshops for children (and adults) during the holidays. I’ve helped budding wizards create over 100 wands and 50 spell books!
But now, as they all head back to school, I felt it was time to treat myself to some special storage for my everyday essentials. And this fantastic MDF storage caddy by Candy Box Crafts fits the bill perfectly.
As it comes flat packed, I started by trying to work out how all the pieces fit together to make the organiser and I have to say it was quite a bit easier than I expected.
Once I knew where all the pieces were going I used bronze Powertex to glue them together by painting a very thin layer on the joining surfaces and fitting them all together (I also painted all of the inside surfaces with bronze Powertex as I wanted a dark interior).
Top tip – I used elastic bands around the outside of the organiser to hold all of the pieces tightly together whilst the Powertex dried.
I confess, with this project I didn’t really know where I was going with the decoration at the start, I just knew that I wanted it not to be too bulky so that it would fit onto my already jam packed work surface. So I started by using Easy Structure paste through stencils to add an embossed pattern to all four sides – as well as some other stencils from my stash, I used the fabulous Fossilized and Wonderland stencils by the Secret Art Loft.
The structure paste was allowed to dry before all four sides were painted with Lead Powertex and small 3D Balls sprinkled into the wet Powertex.
I then mixed a paste using Lead Powertex and Easy 3D Flexwhich a spread over some of the blanker areas of the sides using a palette knife and pushed some pieces of a jigsaw puzzle into the paste on the front. This was left overnight to allow the paste to dry and crack.
I then used Powerwax mixed with Powercolor pigments to apply layers of colour using a sponge. I used the following pigment colours – turquoise, green, white, blue, burgundy and lilac. And finally dry brushed using Rich Gold Colortricx mixed with Easy Varnish.
To brighten up the centre piece I decoupaged it using EasyCoat Mat and pieces of this gorgeous rice paper.
Once it had all dried it was time to put it to use. Apologies for the state of my bottles and brushes but was made to be a working storage caddy so it would have been unbelievable for everything to be brand new and spotless. Two 1kg Powertex bottles fit into their compartments perfectly and then there is still plenty of space left for brushes, and your other crafty essentials.
Hope you have enjoyed this month’s project and have been inspired to get organised.

Until next time, Abs xx

 

Alice in Wonderland Clock created (by Anne)

I have had so much fun joining the Alice in Wonderland Tea Party with Powertex UK. I love fantasy themes and wanted to make a working clock full of bright fun colours and sparkle. Hope that you like my Alice Clock. It certainly fills me with cheer and makes me smile.
I had an old heart shaped MDF working clock that really needed a revamp. I combined it with the Pocket Watch Kit to create my crazy clock. The kit contains a stand, solid back and frame to make up a 3D pocket watch. Also included are lots of smaller embellishments for decoration – great kit.
The stand was put together using Black Powertexto coat and glue everything together.
The open watch frame was coated with Black Powertex.
The back and outer rim of the solid pocket watch shape were also coated with Black Powertex. The central area was painted with Ivory Powertexready for adding images. When dry, pocket watch images from a decorative Rice Paper were applied using Easy Coat Mat decoupage medium. The sheet I used does not appear to be in stock at the moment but the Victorian Steampunk sheet is similar. The surface was spritzed with a little Green Bisterto knock back the harshness of the Ivory colour. 
I coated my recycled MDF clock with Ivory Powertex on the front, Black on the back. Again Easy Coat was used to add Rice Paper images. You can still see the original painted numbers on my old clock face.
A layer of Crackle Accents (Ranger) was added onto the clock face images to give an aged crackle effect. When dry, more Green Bister was added to emphasise the crackle (the wet colour seeps into the cracks). Texture was then applied using Easy Structure Pastethrough the Wonderland Stencil. I dabbed over with a little black Powertex to cover some of the bright white colour. Easy Structure Paste was also used as a strong 3D glue to attach the watch to the stand.
Rice paper images were also applied to my recycled heart clock. Layers of kitchen paper were applied around the decoupaged images using ivory Powertex to give added texture. I also added Easy Structure Paste through the stencil to add hearts.
Several of the new Acrylic Inks and Paints were used to add colour to my project (Acrylic Inks in Egg Yolk, Tangerine, Golden Metallic, Viola Metallic and Aqua Metallic; Acrylic Paints in Raspberry Sorbet, Orange Marmalade and Key Lime). The inks are gorgeous fluid transparent colours ideal for painting over other colours or patterned papers. The medium bodied acrylic colours are semi-translucent and are great for heavier colour and layering. I LOVE them.
A piece of tree bark was treated with Transparent Powertex. I have had this piece in my stash for years (so it was fully dried out) just waiting for a suitable project to use it on.
The pocket watch frame was glued in place with Transparent Powertex ensuring that it was well centred. Easy Structure paste was used to glue 3D elements onto the base stand. Bronze Powertex was used to cover and colour the Easy Structure Paste where needed. At this stage I checked that the clock hands would be able to move freely around the clock face (once it’s all glued and dry it’s well and truly glued!).
The small MDF heart (from my recycled clock) was treated with black Powertex. I added some 3D Sand and Balls into the wet Powertex for texture. When dry I coloured with Easy Varnish and Interference Lilac Pearl Pigment. Have you seen these new Pearl Pigment colours? WOWeeee!  I rubbed over a little Pebeo Gilding Wax (gold) to cover the edges and highlight the texture more.
Gilding Wax was also rubbed over the Pocket Watch tops and tree bark. A thick greyboard frame and rectangle was coated in Black Powertex to create a table. A piece of lace and scrap of knitted cotton was also coated in Black Powertex to fill in the base of the ‘tree’ and to create the table cloth. I started placing other MDF elements from the Pocket Watch Kit (but not glued down yet).
More colour was added with the Acrylic Paints. The metal clock hands were coated with Jade Patina (Ranger).
….. and yes my craft stash is encroaching inwards – tee hee.
I continued to build the scene, coating elements with Black or Ivory Powertex then colouring with Acrylic Paints before gluing down with Powertex.  
The MDF sentiments and Flamingoes were from the Alice Collection; the butterflies, dragonfly, numbers and spirals from the Pocket Watch Kit. The sentiment plaque was a greyboard piece from my stash. I added some 3D Sand and Balls to the Flamingo wings for extra texture.
A layer of Glossy Accents (Ranger) was applied over some of the painted elements and fine crystal glitter dropped into the wet surface for added bling and sparkle. The piece was then left overnight, propping it in a horizontal position.
I also added an MDF Heart Flower, Lion, cat and small bird from Mini Hieroglyphs, MDF flowers and leaves plus greyboard flowers (from my stash). The little signposts were made from recycled wooden canvas stretchers and black alcohol marker used to write.
Then I had fun with my dies. Each element was built up using 4 layers of either black or Kraft card and layers glued together with Powertex to make them thick and robust. Coffee Archival Ink (Ranger) was used to stamp the chairs (Sizzix). The cake stand, cupcakes, small cup & saucer, spoon & fork and teapot cut (Intricutz); the larger cup & saucer and top hat (Sheena Douglass); the chandelier (Crafters Companion) were built and glued in place with Easy Structure paste where needed to give added depth. More Glossy Accents and glitter were added over some of the elements.
Finally a little dry brushed colour was added over some of the textured surfaces using Easy Varnish and the Pigment colours (Iridescent Lilac, Violet Valentine, Rich Gold).
I will leave it for around three weeks for everything to fully cure, then finish with Easy Varnish to fully seal everything and give added protection to painted surfaces.
I’ve popped in some close ups for you. Ooooh sparkly flamingos.
I am always running late so this sentiment is perfect for my clock – tee hee.
You can see that crackle texture on the watch faces here.
Lots of layering and sparkle.
I absolutely love my new clock. I hope that you love it too, Anne xxx.

Textured top hat for beginners

Hi it’s Kore! Take a look a this adorable little Top Hat project. This cute kit size makes a great project for an afternoon of crafting and all you need to add is some Powertex Universal Medium and a couple of pigment colours. As always you can include fabric, lace and embellishments from your own stash.
Powertex Top Hat project
Powertex Top Hat Project pack
Ingredients
Top Hat project kit
Apron, gloves, Paper/plastic plate, flat brush, paper towel.
Optional
Length of string to wrap around hat
Small piece of cotton/muslin to wrap front of hatband
Piece of t-shirt yarn/strip of fabric to make a bow
(Remember natural fabrics and fibers work best with Powertex)
You can see the decorative pieces I’ve chosen below. The MDF pieces and the wallpaper from the pack plus a length of string, tshirt yarn (enough for a bow) and a piece of cotton muslin, enough to pleat and wrap around the front.

 

Powertex project choosing embellishments
Pour a few tablespoons of Bronze Powertex into your plate and paint the base pieces. You have about an hour of working time. This seals the MDF and is used to glue the base pieces together. Dry them on a plastic surface or craft mat.

 

Prime MDF with Powertex Bronze
I had a play with laying out my pieces and decided to tear up the wall paper so I could get the texture all over. When you know which pieces you like, paint them with the Powertex.

 

Powertex project layout
Now pour out a few more tablespoons of Powertex and use your brush to paint and stick down the wallpaper pieces and paint over them. You may want to wear your gloves for this part!
To add the fabric hatband use your fingers to apply Powertex to half the fabric, not too wet, and then massage it through the whole piece. Ensure the whole piece is covered but don’t saturate it or it will take a long time to dry. The fabric should be sticky to hold. When it’s ready, you can wrap it around the front of the hat, creating pleats and wrinkles as you like. The Powertex will stick the fabric to the base and when dry will hold it’s shape.
Use the same technique with the string. Tuck the feather into the hat band while the fabric is wet.
Use Powertex to adhere any other embellishments such as the small hearts, the tag or anything else you fancy! Just remember that Powertex doesn’t stick well to plastic. If you prefer you can colour your embellishments before sticking them to your finished project.
Leave to dry. Depending on room temperature this may take 1-4 hours to be touch dry. My art table on a sunny day will dry this nicely in half an hour!

 

Project coated with Bronze Powertex
There’s lots of texture on here so now we need to bring that to life with some colour. We use Powercolor pigments for our colours. They come in powder form so can be mixed with many mediums but here we are going to use Easy Varnish to create a paint that is also weatherproof!
I chose Red Ochre and Yellow Ochre as these warm pigments really complement each other and look fantastic against the Bronze Powertex.
Use a flat 3/4 inch brush and put a small blob of varnish on a plastic plate or craft mat. Pull a tiny amount to the side with your brush and then dip the tip of your brush into the powder pigment. Tap off any excess and then mix this with your varnish. The varnish dries quickly so mix small amounts.
For the dry brushing technique in this project your paint mixture should be quite dry. Wipe excess paint from your brush on a paper towel before you touch your project. Keep your brush flat and brush your project in the same direction each time. Your aim is to highlight the textures you have created and leave the Bronze coming through.

 

Powertex Top Hat Powercolor pigments
I used more of the red at the top of the hat and more the yellow at the bottom. Also if you’re not sure about the colour, you can brush over it again until you’re happy. The Yellow Ochre was great for highlights against the Red Ochre background.

 

Powertex top hat close up
I made, dried and dry brushed the bow in Yellow Ochre before I attached it with Bronze Powertex.

I brushed pigments straight onto the feather piece.

The Yellow Ochre hearts really stand out against the dark background  but I used white for highlights.

Products can feel overwhelming when they do so much but these techniques are simple and fun for   any age. The project packs make it easy to get started and you can add treasures or scraps from your stash to make it really personal.

Down the rabbit hole

I was very excited when I got to create my Alice inspired pieces because I was up in Tracey’s studio at Powertex hq. I thought I had been really clever and taken step by step photos but alas no. I had not been that clever. So I will therefore walk through the steps I took to create my piece. Have you got yours yet? Find them here.
I actually started off with Ivory Powertex and gave everything a base coat. Apart from the Cheshire cat grin and the 10/6 which I coated in Black Powertex .
TOP TIP: If you coat both the front and back pieces your working on it will help prevent warping. Being good quality mdf this is unlikely to happen but it will enable you to strenghten the piece if you are loading it up with a lot of embellishments and texture.
Once dry I placed the rice paper to the top of the hat by applying Easy Coat to the base, laying the paper and giving a liberal coat over the top.
In the middle of the brim part of the hat I place some patterned wall paper stuck with and re-coated with Ivory Powertex.
I then dipped some stockinette into the Ivory Powertex and stuck into place on either side of the hat all the way down to the brim. I dipped some lace which I scrunched up and put in place underneath the band of the hat.
I took some Easy structure through the Alice stencil on the card shapes and the band of the hat and then applied another coat of Ivory Powertex over the top once dry. The texture on the feather was created by pulling some Easy Structure over the surface with a palette knife and then once dry was coated in another layer of Ivory Powertex.
I created the 10/6 sign by using the mdf rectangular shape as a template around some cardboard and then covering in linen which had been dipped in Ivory Powertex. I used the rose and the daisy mould to create some embellishments from stone art clay and then painted up in the Raspberry Sorbet and Orange Marmalade acrylics on the roses and the feather and the Lemon Meringue and Orange Marmalade on the daisy shapes.

I then painted the band with the Key Lime acrylic and the base of the hat and sides with a mixture of Orange Marmalade into Raspberry Sorbet into Blueberry Pie. I also used all the colours on the words fading in and out of one another. All the pieces were then stuck down with Transparent Powertex and left to dry.

I’m really please Leonie liked my journal I thought for a moment it wouldn’t be coming home with Tracey. This one was fun to create with multi-layer stenciling, on the cover and rice papers. Green and blue bisters to give it a softer finish. The rabbit uses the crackle effect you get with Ivory Powertex, brown bister and a hair dryer. I used the rice papers on the inside covers too. Hope you enjoyed the Hochanda shows, I certainly had fun creating my art to inspire. Toodles Anna xXx

 

 

 

 

Teatime in wonderland, wearing my best hat!

Hello lovely people.
I hope you enjoyed the show on Hochanda and it has got your creative juices flowing.
I was lucky enough to try out the project packs before the show and I have to say I really enjoyed doing them.
I created the hat first as my muse was screaming at me to do that one.
Sadly I did not do step by step photos as I was way too excited to crack on and play.
I had a piece of quite chunky crochet material I wanted to use and this was just the job.
I first laid out all the parts of the kit and decided how I was going to display them, before getting out the Powertex and going for it.
My muse already knew what colour theme I was going to do, so first I painted the top hat in the BLUEBERRY PIE and MOJITO LIME
Paint and Powertexed my crochet material and laid it on the hat.
I used the green and did a bit of blending with the blueberry and dry brushed with the white pigment to highlight.
I added the rice papers to the playing cards and added texture in the form of sand balls to the top part of the cards.
I took the feather and added texture to that using stone art and Powertex and used a pokey tool to make it look like a feather, dry brushed with black.
I used more of the crochet material to the bottom part of the hat and then measured and soaked some material to give it a more 3D effect to the middle part of the hat.
I used easy 3D FLEX on the tag and gave it a crackle effect using some brown bister and added the MDF numbers and painted them with easy varnish mixed with black pigment.
And my mad hatter’s hat I felt was completed.
The next kit I found more of a creative challenge and my muse was stumped on how to go about this one, I think as the rice papers are so pretty, it kind of threw me a little, as this is not more normal style!
 I sat and played around with combinations for a while until I decided upon a design my muse liked but once I started, I did not stop until it was done.
Firstly I wet ripped the rice paper, by this I mean if you dunk a fine paintbrush in water and run it around the part of the rice paper/tissue paper you want to use, it comes away quite easy and looks a better finish when laid down on a structure.
I then added lace to other parts of the teapot and cups and saucers and decoratively painted the flowers and flamingo and the little mouse on the top. I added a piece of string dipped in transparent Powertex. I painted the MDF wording in the blue paint and stuck down using Powertex as my glue.
I forgot the mention I added a few lace butterflies as well.
It turned out very pretty (for me) and I loved incorporating the rice papers into my design.
I hope all the design team blogs on this theme have inspired you all.
Until my next blog …. Go be creative

Mad Mad Hatter by Fi Potter

Just a quick blog today to share my Mad Mad Hatter project with you. This is the second of the pieces I created for Tracey’s Hochanda show on 30th March.
We had a very colourful kit to choose from which is just perfect for these Alice Theme project kits.
As always, I played with some layout ideas before I for the Powertex out. First I used some Easy Coat Matte to attach the Queen of hearts rice paper on the hat base and on one of the mdf card blanks.
I then coated everything in black Powertex. I then made up some stone art clay for the band and added some lace at the top and bottom of the band. I also added stone art clay to the top hat for depth and texture.
Next I coated and placed the embellishments.
Once everything was totally dry I got the Secret Art Loft acrylics out and added several layers of colour. Next I used a variety of The Secret Art Loft and Powercolor pigments mixed with easy varnish to really make the embellishments pop. Below are some close ups of some of them.
Here’s the finished piece.
Hope Tracey and the Design Team have inspired you to have fun with your project kits.
Look forward to seeing your pieces in the Powertex Studio Group.
By for now

It’s always time for tea

Hi there, did you see Tracey on Hochanda? Have you got your Alice themed projects yet?
I had such a lot of fun creating this colourful piece.  I’m popping some photos below so you can see the steps I took to create it.
First I added rice paper using Easy Coat matte and did a loose layout
Next I covered everything in Ivory Powertex and sprayed with blue and red Bister,  and then left overnight to make sure it was thoroughly dry
I then washed back the bister to leave the nice soft blues and pinks
Next I used Easy Structure and some stencils to create extra texture  once that was dry I used the gloriously bright Secret Art Loft pigments and inks as well as some Powercolor

 

 

 

 

Finally I drilled holes with a 2mm drill bit and threaded through some paper string to hang my tea shoppe sign with
Hope you like it and have loads of fun and hope we are inspiring you to create your own unique pieces
Bye for now

Hats off to Powertex UK and the New Alice in Wonderland Inspired Kits

Powertex combined with Alice in Wonderland? Whoever would have come up with that idea?  The guys at Powertex UK that’s who.  And you’ve got to admit it, it’s a match made in heaven.

As anyone who has ever dabbled with Powertex will tell you, the possibilities for going with the imaginative flow are limitless.  Throw in a bit of the total other wordliness of Alice in Wonderland and you just know you are in for a roller coaster ride of creativity.

The kits I got to experiment with were the Top Hat Set, and the Tea Party Set.  Both available from Powertex UK.   

They are both the most fun ever, but being more of a mad hatter type of girl than a tea time kind of girl I have decided to show what I did with the top hat set in this blog:

I started off by painting the whole thing with black powertex, and allowing the pieces to dry separately.

I then carefully tore round some of the card shapes in the Alice in Wonderland Rice Paper. I used Powertex easy varnish to position the Cheshire Cat in pride of place on the hat.  And then placed the smaller ones over the card shapes.  I decided to have these sneakily poking out of the top of the hat.  I used some very scrappy thin lace that I had in my material stash to add some shabby texture to the hat.

Doing the feather was my favourite part.  I used Powertex Power Cotton covered in black powertex and gradually built up the strands of the feather shape and allowed it to dry.  I then used the new inteference powders available from Powertex UK to add a gloriously irredescent sheen to the feather.

I wanted the hat to be at a slightly jaunty angle, so when I was piecing it together with the hat band, I made sure not to be too accurate with my placement of the top part.

I used a nice quality piece of natural fabric soaked in the powertex to cover the band with, making sure to get lots of nice texture and wrinkles going, and again used the inteference powders to enhance this texture once it was dry.

I fished out an old bow tie I’d picked up from a second hand store ages ago, and also knew at once that I had to use a little tassle I’d been hanging onto waiting for just the right project.  I think it adds an air of shabby decadence.

I added a few stone art flowers, and couldn’t resist adding  an mdf cobweb as I very much doubt the Mad Hatter takes good care of his possessions.  I also got to use the wonderful new and very bright acrylics on the 10/6 price tag.

All in all I would say this has been my favourite MDF kit to date.  I just love the crazy funkiness of it, and the freedom to go fairly wild.

As Alice herself said ‘This is my dream – I’ll decide where it goes from here’ I wonder where your Wonderland adventures will take you?

We hope you are enjoying this new theme. Do share you makes with us over at the Powertex Studio as we love to see your creations.

Cheshire Cat on the Mad Hatter’s Hat

Hello there,
I had a great time with the Top Hat kit that I wanted to share with you how I created the Cheshire cat on the Hat that was shown on the Hochanda show with Tracey Evans.
Along with the kit I used the mdf Alice and Grin embellishments.
To start with I assembled the hat using the hat band on the back and front to secure it, then I prepped all of the embellishments so that they were ready to place in the fabric whilst it was still wet

I started by using clear domes to create the eyes.  Using Powercolor black pigment mixed with Easy Varnish I painted the iris onto the flat side of the dome, let that dry completely then cover the whole of flat side with the Key Lime paint repeat this several times to get the depth of colour but let it dry between layers. Set aside.

Using the beautifully bright acrylic paints coat the letters, grin and Alice.  Don’t forget the sides. Set aside.

Take the mdf playing cards and using a craft knife carefully cut the shape from the top of the card and use this to fill in the gap in the centre.  Coat the card with a layer of Ivory Powertex, let it dry completely.  Using a wet paintbrush draw around the image on the rice paper and gently pull away the areas not needed.

Coat the mdf playing card with varnish then lay the rice paper image on  top,  using more varnish go over the top of the image and sides of the card pressing gently to adhere.

When dry coat the edge of the card with Powertex Black.

 

For the ears, mix up Powertex Black and Stone Art into a clay (when it no longer sticks to your hands its ready).  Shape two ears and set aside to dry.  Make sure you have a flat area that will sit nicely on the hat.

 

Whilst everything was drying I laid out the stripes on my cat, here is is shown using tin foil however as I had extra Stone Art clay I used that to make the stripes.

For the tail, I removed the quill part of the feather and used the Stone Art to depict the stripes.

Once I had them in position I painted the whole of the hat and tail in Black Powertex.

Using gauze and Black Powertex I then covered these making sure you press around the raised areas to get definition for the stripes.  Place the eyes and use a small piece of gauze to create eyelids.

Whilst this is wet place your letters, ears ( you may need to add additional Powertex to the flat part to ensure a good bond), Alice, Grin, Playing cards and the tail.  Use additional gauze to build underneath any embellishments that need more support.  Let dry

I then dry brushed the stripes and ears with a combination of the Blueberry Pie paint, Raspberry Sorbet paint and white pigment to get the shading.

I hope you have as much fun with the kit as I did and don’t forget to post your makes on our Powertex Studio Facebook page.

Happy Creative Adventures

Twinkle, twinkle, little bat

by Abigail Lagden

I was so excited when I unpacked all the Alice in Wonderland goodies that I couldn’t wait to get started. The acrylics were so wonderfully bright and bold that I decided I needed to create something totally different to my usual style. So, it is the tea party set that I have chosen to share with you all this month.

 

Anyone who knows me and my work, knows I hate flat surfaces so the first thing I did was add some texture to the body of the teapot using wallpaper and painted over this with ivory Powertex. On top of this, I added a piece of the delicious floral rice paper using Easycoat Matt.

I did the same with the saucers and I also used a little bit of wallpaper on the top part of the cups.

I mixed up some Stone Art clay using ivory Powertex and Stone Art and applied this roughly onto the teacups. I used some flower stamps from my stash to make imprints into the clay.

I then used the gorgeous acrylic paints to paint splodges of colour onto the clay. I left this to dry for a short time before using a damp sponge to gently wipe the paint back off the surface of the clay.

The two saucers were painted using the acrylic paints and left to dry. Again a damp sponge was used to lift the paint off the raised pattern.

More ivory stone art clay was added to the handle, spout and outer edges of the teapot. Lots of daisies were made using stone art clay in the daisy mould and these were piled onto the teapot (leaving some space for Alice) and secured using a little Powertex underneath the flowers.

In the same way as the paints were used on the cups, I coloured the teapot and all the flowers.

The little Alice figure was also painted using the acrylic paints and powertex.

Once all of the individual pieces were complete and dry, they were all attached together using some transparent Powertex and the MDF bar included in the kit.

Et voila!!

 

The brightest most funky piece I think I have ever made – I have a feeling I may have been converted from the dark side (well… temporarily at least!)

 

I hope you will all enjoy playing with the new templates, paints and pigments as much as I have. Don’t forget to share your makes in The Powertex Studio, we absolutely love to see them.
Until next time, Abs xx
