clear powertex with janice

  I have sculpted  in clay and I also woodcarve and do Pyrography. I am mostly an artist in paint, self taught since 1972 and have run the gamut of all sorts of paints and techniques.
With Powertex , I learned from talking to Brigette and buying supplies from her. 
My ladies are very colourful and have painted faces. I hand sewed their clothing, trying it on before I use the clear Powertex . The lady in the green dress is the only one whose skirt is done the way the little booklet suggested.  The hair on the lady in green is a lightweight cotton wool that I dyed with coffee after sewing it onto some tulle; the other two ladies have hair made of crochet cotton on a fabric band and then dyed with tea.
