Powertex is an environmentally friendly water-based medium. You can use it for all your MIXED MEDIA artwork such as paintings, statues, decorations and jewellery. Powertex is a hardener for all absorbent natural materials such as textiles, paper, card board, leather, plush and fiberglass. Powertex easily mixes with sand, wood powder, Stone Art and Easy3Dflex to create structures, structure pastes and self-drying modelling clays. Powertex adheres to all materials except plastic. It is recommended that statues or objects for outdoor use are protected with a water-resistant varnish once they are completely hardened after 2 to 3 weeks. Your artwork can be coloured with Easy Varnish and colour pigments or acrylic and oil paint. If you like to recycle then you will LOVE Powertex. All those odds and ends that you have been storing up, old clothes, unwanted manchester, scraps of wool, fabric, timber, paper, beads, mosaics, you name it and you can probably use it! Combine your bits and pieces with a dab of creativity and mix well to create beautiful art for your home or garden.

My name is Joanne Bouma. I was born in the Netherlands and immigrated to New Zealand in 1979 with my husband and two children. We settled in Hamilton with our family and have lived there until now.
The company where I worked for 25 years restructured and my position was made redundant. I suddenly found I had a lot of free time on my hands.
On a recent trip back to the Netherlands I was introduced to Powertex and Stone Art. I was already enjoying doing a bit of craft when I fell in love with Powertex. I found it exciting to be able to create great sculptures and figurines for indoors and outdoors.
I find working with Powertex extremely rewarding and very relaxing. I love to work with people and hope to inspire others to work with this product to create their own art and find their hidden creative ability.
