Outdoor sculptures

Spring is officially here, the sun has broken through the clouds from this morning, and we just received our shipment of PAVERPOL!
Some reasons you might want to investigate this medium:

Paverpol was developed by Dutch artists as a user-friendly replacement for resin. 
Dip fabrics into Paverpol, drape or wrap the material around a wire figure or other armature and leave it to dry. Paverpol dries fast, but slowly enough to allow plenty of open working time. 

Paverpol adheres to almost all materials, except plastic. And unlike most hardeners, it does NOT deteriorate polystyrene foam.  We stock the transparent Paverpol, which can be used with colored fabrics or pigmented with any of our powdered pigments.  
Here's one new tip I just discovered:
"Except for the 250 ml squeeze-top bottle, Paverpol is concentrated. According to the materials used and desired strength, it can be diluted with no more than 1/4 cup of water per 500 grams. This will increase the viscosity, ease of use and extend the volume of product without affecting final hardness."

After it has hardened, you have created a unique decoration or sculpture, which can be used indoors or outdoors.
