A fun product! Art Stone can be used in two different ways. You can use it to make self-hardening clay, or you can use the powder to creat a stone-look finish to your sculptures.
To make a stone finish, use Paverpol lead color or Paverpol transparent mixed with Pavercolor Siena as a basis. (Of course, you can also mix with other Pavercolors if desired.) You can use a preformed figure of Styrofoam, plaster, paper mache, or kitchen foil covered with masking or floral 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 form completely with the colored Paverpol. Put the clay fully or partially onto the layer that is still wet—layer 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 the brush.)
When your work is fully or partially decorated with the clay, scatter some powder over it and rub it 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 it afterwards.
This stone effect is not suitable for outdoor objects. If you want to leave the piece of work outside, you can use 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.
To make jewelry: Create stones of clay, use a skewer to make holes in them, and get a leather lace to thread the beads.
