Powertex Figurine; Sculpting with Fabric- Cheryl Boglioli

Fabric Sculpting with Powertex with Cheryl Boglioli

Feb 16, 2019


Making a fabric sculpture allows complete freedom of expression in creating wonderful figurines that have their own

individuality and presence. Cheryl will show you how to construct a wire armature that is ‘mummified’ and then

‘dressed’ and draped with fabric dipped into a fabric hardener. Cheryl will guide you step by step to transform your

armature into a unique sculpture (a lady, a golfer, an Angel….)

Whether you are a beginner or advanced artist, you’ll love this Workshop!
