Paverpol Sculpture Glue
Transparent Paverpol is worked into Stockinette, Pavercotton and other materials and then draped around the masking tape covered bonsai wire skeleton.
How to do it
Cut two equal length pieces of soft bonsai wire and one piece of bonsai wire a little shorter. Twist the two long pieces together to form the arms, body and legs. Twist the short piece to make a head as shown in the photo.
Twist the two wire ends from the head around the arms and gather at the waist with a piece of masking tape.
Form the body with tin foil and wind masking tape around it.
Stir Pavercolor into the transparent Paverpol – the color will darken when applied to the fabric. The Paverpol may be used without the Pavercolor and painted with Plus Color craft paint when dry.
Bend the figure into the desired position. Cut all the fabric into pieces/strips, dip in Paverpol, wring out most of the glue from the fabric and drape it around the figure.
When the figure has hardened, patinate it with metallic paint.
