- How long do I have access to the course?
You will have access in the classroom until at least February 2024. You can download the videos and pdfs to access when you don't have internet access or if the class is closed after that date.
- Will I have access to the teacher?
Yes! Cheryl will be available in the classroom after registration.
- What art supplies will I need, and do I have to use Powertex?
After registration and when the class begins, you will receive a detailed supply list, including the must-haves and optional supplies. I will also go over alternatives that can be used where applicable.
- Where can I buy Powertex supplies?
In the USA? You can buy Powertex directly with Cheryl at Cheryl Boglioli Designs.
If you are outside the USA, there are distributors in many countries. You can find your distributor at Powertex Worldwide Distributors.
Powertex is a non-toxic water-based fabric stiffener that can be used not only as a textile hardener but also for all your Mixed Media Paintings and sculptures. Powertex is a Universal medium and a MUST-HAVE for Fiber and Mixed Media Artists.
The possibilities are endless!
YES! Powertex is nontoxic and carries the AP Safety Seal, making it safe for all ages.
- Is there anything else I need to know?
- IMPORTANT!!! Do not pour Powertex down the drain. While Powertex is water-based and non-toxic, it is made to cure rock-hard, and you don’t want it stuck in your plumbing. When dry, the remaining solids can be discarded in the trash can. You can pour it back into your original container if it is still in its original form.
- Powertex Universal Medium should not be allowed to freeze.
- Always shake and stir Powertex Universal Medium with a dowel, as the heavy pigments will sink.
- Do I need a kiln?
No. Powertex is an air-dry product. Once applied, Powertex Universal medium begins to dry but remains flexible for hours, allowing you the time to manipulate the project.
This class begins March 13 at 8 am EST.
