Art Nouveau Canvas

Art Nouveau Canvas by Liz Dixon

Hi Everyone.  Have you seen the beautiful new rice papers & all the lovely MDF shapes that Powertex UK now have in stock?  I couldn’t wait to get making as there are so many Mixed Media possibilities (as if there weren’t enough already within the Powertex range!!)
I particularly love the Art Nouveau papers – elegant ladies in flowing gowns, which go perfectly with the swirls & curls of the Acanthus MDF shapes.
The canvas was given a base layer of Ivory Powertex & once dry, the Rice Paper was applied with Easy Coat Mat.
I raided my stencil collection & added texture to the canvas & MDF using Easy Structure, before getting busy with the Bisters.  The Rice paper was a great place to start for colour palette inspiration!
Paper trim, more MDF, paper flowers & some self-coloured Stone Art clay Ivy leaves completed the complilation, before dry brushing with Easy Varnish & Colourtrix Pigments 
I wonder what your Powertex inspiration will be today?

A crackalacking time!

Well, what an amazing time we had recently! Powertex Uk Hq was a buzz with a wonderful visit from Brigitte Grade, the creator of Powertex. We had a CRACKALACKING time!!
Thanks to the organisation of Tracey, Garry and the Powertexuk Team a handful of lucky tutors got to spend the day under the tuition of Brigitte. Learning some marvelous new techniques and having a jolly good time.
The weather was kind to us and we had absolutely beautiful setting in the marquee in the garden and we all came away with works of art to be proud of.
It was so lovely to catch up with our Powertex family, seeing some old friends and making some new friends. Frankie and Maurice quickly made friends too!

What a magical product Powertex is to bring so many people together!

As you can see from the video and photos much fun was had. We’d love to share the new techniques with you however we are going to be a tease this time and dangle the carrot. Don’t worry we will let you in on  the new products and secret recipes soon we promise!  Stay tuned for more snippets of inspiration!
