More Poverpol Experiments

(painted deli papers)

(hand-dyed fabric)

Q: What Are They?
A: I'm not sure, yet. Maybe nothing.

I still don't know if I have anything here except a curious series of photographs. One thing I did learn, though... don't wait for fabric impregnated with Paverpol to dry before you cut into it, because it turns to stone! All those lovely wrinkles I worked so hard to produce and I can't cut them with any tool I own!

(For scale, the one made of paper is about the size of a grapefruit and the one made of fabric is about the size of a fat orange.)

Hey, sometimes art wants to take you in bizarre directions... For now, anyway, I'm going with it. We'll see where I'm at once the Paverpol runs out, again.

I like when the various layers peak through the outside. Is it possible to form the piece and then do cutting and final shaping when it is wet? I have never used poverpol so I have no idea. It is an interesting experiment in any case.

And I thought you had ALL the power tools! Looks like you've created quite a challenge for yourself, but I think the possibilities are intriguing. Maybe paverpol can tell you what will make a dent in it!

These are really interesting. The fabric one has great texture. And the colors are awesome!
