Working with Art Stone

Art Stone can be used in different ways. By mixing it with Paverpol you can make a weather-resistant self-hardening clay. But you can also use the powder to give statues a stone look.


Making clay
To make clay, mix Paverpol (coloured or transparent) with Art Stone until a clay mass is created that no longer sticks to your hands.

Stone effect
For the stone effect, use Paverpol lead colour as a base. Of course you can also mix other colours of Paverpol with it. Coat your workpiece completely with the coloured Paverpol. You can apply the clay mass in whole or in partsto the still wet layer. Thick or thin, coarse or fine, whatever you like. Make sure that the underlayer is wet. If not, apply another layer of Paverpol with the brush. If your workpiece is completely or partially decorated with the clay mass, sprinkle a little Art Stone powder over it and rub it in well. If the surface has become too dry, apply some Paverpol again with the brush. You can also sprinkle some powder into the wet layer of Paverpol and rub it out.

This stone effect is not suitable for outdoor use. If you want to place the workpiece outside, use a patina instead of powder that you make by mixing Pavercolor white with Josefine matt varnish. You apply this with the brush. With a piece of kitchen paper you wipe away the excess of patina. Let the workpiece dry and rub with a non-fluffy cloth.

Making jewelery is also a possibility: form stones from the clay mass, poke holes in them with a skewer, after which you can thread a string or lace through them.


You can work on a preformed figure of styrofoam, plaster, ecoshape, or aluminium foil (cover the the foil with masking tape).
