Working with Art Stone

Art Stone is a fun product with which you can create beautiful stone-effect objects in an easy manner. Art Stone can be used in two different ways. Use it as a self-hardening clay or use the powder to make sculptures or statues that resemble made out of stone.
To make a sculpture resembling stone use Paverpol lead colour or Paverpol transparent mixed with Pavercolor Siena as a basis. It is of course also possible to mix with other Pavercolors.
You can use a pre-form figure of tempex, plaster, ecoshape, or kitchen foil (cover foil with painter’s tape).

Mix the colored Paverpol with the same amount of Art Stone Decoration powder until the clay is one lump that no longer sticks to your hands. Cover your work completely with the colored Paverpol. Put the clay fully or partially onto the layer that is still wet. Thick or thin, coarse or fine, whatever you like. Make sure that the bottom layer is wet. If needed apply a new layer of Paverpol using a brush.

When your work is fully or partially decorated with the clay scatter some powder over it and rub in well. Apply some Paverpol with a brush if the base has become too dry. You can also scatter a little Paverpol on the wet layer and rub in afterwards.

This stone effect is not suitable for outdoor objects. If you want to leave the piece of work outside, you can use a patina instead of powder, which can be made by mixing white Pavercolor with Josefine gloss varnish. Apply with a brush. Remove the surplus patina with a tissue. Let the work dry and make it glossy with a lint-free cloth.
It is also possible to make jewelry: create stones of clay, use a skewer to make holes in them and get a leather lace to thread the beads.

Art Stone is available in 300 and 1250 grams pots.
