Garden Art with Paverpol!

What is Paverpol?

   

It`s a polymer based non-toxic art medium primarily used as a

textile hardener; however within the multi-media arena, this product

is now used within various art forms as part of an integrated technique component. 

 

The Paverpol medium is water based and has received the AP seal

for non-toxicity from the ACMI (Arts and Creative Materials Institute). 

You can simply clean your hands and tools with warm water and soap…

so you know it’s safe to handle. 

Paverpol can make materials such as fabrics/textiles, paper, leather,

moss, tree branches, and other natural materials, “rock-hard” and

weather resistant. It can even create “stone” figures by combining

Paverpol with Art Stone, or create the “granite” effect by using Paverpol, Paverscrub and Art Stone, or simply create a beautiful “porcelain”

effect with Paverpol Transparent and paper. 

The easiest and most in-demand effect is the metal or brass look.  Using Pavercolour, Paverpaint and/or acrylic paints, we can create the “metallic” effect within minutes. 

The possibilities are endless with this extremely versatile and forgiving

art medium.

 Recycle, Reuse, Re-purpose!!

In addition to the environmental qualities of Paverpol; the use of this art medium from a environmentally responsible perspective is unlimited.  We continuously recycle, resuse and re-purpose “secondary  treasures”  within our creations and during our workshops. 

There`s a famous slogan for paverpoling, “FROM T-SHIRT TO GARDEN ART”. 

The root of paverpoling is taking an old cotton tshirt and making a weatherproof garden statue within a day.  With this simple one coat medium you can turn your old cotton t-shirt or silk scarf into an amazing indoor or outdoor piece of art. 

Use it on (baby) clothes, dry- and silk flowers, clay, Styrofoam, paper Mache, bark fibers, yarn, glass, metal, and any item that you want to recycle, reuse or repurpose, the list is endless. 

Certified product seals on creative materials prove that they are safe for consumers when used as directed. Products with an Approved Product (AP) or Cautionary Labeling (CL) seal from ACMI undergo extensive toxicological testing by board-certified toxicologists (medical experts) before being certified. Toxicologists evaluate art products for both acute hazards, like skin rashes or eye irritation, and for chronic hazards, or reactions that occur over longer periods of time.

Thousands of art, craft and creative material formulations have earned the ACMI Seals. There’s a certified product for every art project. Look for the seals!
