Stone Art Information Sheet

What is Stone Art

Stone art is like a paper-mache with a very specific composition. When Stone Art is combined with Powertex it makes a self hardening clay, with which coarse and fine stone textural effects can be achieved. You can use Stone Art in different ways.

Mixing Clay and Sculpting:

Mix the same quantities of Powertex and Stone Art together, knead it by hand and continue to add Stone Art until you obtain something that look like bread dough which does not stick to your hands. If the clay is too dry, add more Powertex. If the clay is too wet and sticky add more Stone Art. With this clay you can sculpt and apply texture on a wet layer of Powertex.

Application of Textures

Fine textures on an existing object or canvas:

The easiest way is to work on a ready made base, such as polystyrene, plaster or an armature. Coat your object with Powertex, let it dry a little bit, sprinkle some Stone Art powder into the wet layer and rub off the excess. Repeat this process until you get the desired result. Using Stone Art on top of Powertex lead provides a unique bluestone effect.


For More coarse textures:

Treat the surface as in (2a) Apply Powertex again and add some pieces of clay (by mixing with stone art). We will now apply a second layer of Stone art to obtain more texture. Re-use the stone art waste. You can repeat this process several times, until the desired thickness sand texture is obtained.

Polishing:

Powertex and stone art can be polished. Apply Powertex on your surface, sprinkle Stone art over it and rub off. Apply Powertex again at the areas where you want to apply more highlights. A shiny effect is created by rubbing with the palm of your hand. Repeat the polishing until the desired effect has been obtained. The more you polish the darker the effect will be.

Clay Crackling with pigments:

Make clay as described in (1) flatten ball of clay, made from stone art and Powertex bronze, until it reaches a thickness of maximum 2 cm. Sprinkle different power colours or colourtrix over it, rub the pigments open by hands and repeat the same process on the other side. Roll the clay, using a roiling pin or an empty bottle until it is just a few millimetres thick. While rolling, cracks will appear.

Mixing Paste:

Add stone art to Powertex until you get a flexible paste that can be spread with a spatula. Smooth the texture -less stone art: coarse texture - more stone art

Marbling:

Make clay in different colours eg ivory & green, Roll a few coils, place side by side and work the colours together to achieve a marbled effect.

Outside Usage:

If you are planning to place your stone art artwork outside, please note that stone art is not weather proof and must be coated with easy Varnish, or a marine varnish when its completely dry after 6 weeks. apply at least two layers before placing outside. Unfortunately the stone art powder can become a little yellow after varnishing. In order to prevent this you can add some power colour titanium white to the stone art before applying the Easy varnish.
