sculpture by Eveline

 I live in the beautiful village Berlicum (NB) in The Netherlands. I have over 16 years experience with Powertex and all related Powertex products and have obtained all necessary certificates which a qualified Master Powertex Trainer requires to become a certified trainer and to provide workshops to train new trainers. It all started about 16 years ago when I first came into contact with Powertex, I was immediately hooked. In 2004 we immigrated to Australia where we started an imported and wholesale business with Powertex. In less than two years we had built a nationwide network of dealers and trainers, and Powertex had become a successful product in Australia. Our name was Astonishing Craft and Arts. Now it is belong to Ashley Bowley from Powertex Australia. Due to personal circumstances we returned to the Netherlands in February 2008, we sold our Powertex import and wholesale business to one of our trainers.
 After returning, I couldn’t sit back and do nothing! I had the urge to continue giving classes
 and share my experiences with Powertex and Stone Art.
I hope you'll be as excited as all of us who work with Powertex.
I wish everyone creative greetings.

learning with Anja




I am working non-stop getting ready for the Studio Tour
 taking place on the third weekend of September from the 20-21st.
 Therefor I've added extra classes for October.

Each workshop will be a mixed one, where you can choose what you would like to create that day. New classes will now include the opportunity to learn how to make an ostrich, fairy, African figurine or a different style of blue heron (photo's to be included on my website shortly) as well as the ability to work with stone art, its a crushed paper mache if mixed with Powertex it makes a clay .

Powertex just launched a new product called Easy3DFlex, an inorganic filler/binder in powder form, mixed with Powertex which creates a paste to enable you to easily work with paintings or sculpt in 3D, this medium gives cracks in thick layers by exposing to heat.

I have already seen the results of working with this product and it looks great. The product just arrived in Canada,  and my first order has just arrived. I am hoping I can add this to the list of workshops in the fall….I will keep you posted!.
Mark your calendars TODAY to ensure you reserve a spot!

sculpting and powertex

Meet Morris Thompson  (Brigette's husband)
Moe served in the military before joining the local police service
he spent 30 years as a uniform officer
During this time, he began carving and loves to create the human form.
Wood carving led to a passion for stone carving and occasionally air dry and polymer clay
All of these mediums have contributed to some of his current work with Powertex

An homage to Degas’ famous sculpture...
 this piece won second place at
the Alzheimer Society garden sculpture competition.
 (face is sculpted (OOAK) using air dry clay
everything else is Powertex)
