Textile. Fabric sculpture. height 20 inch, 50 cm

Sculpture (all details) has very hard and resistente structure, like a stone (but easy). It is not afraid of moisture and sunlight, it can be used for outdoor decoration.

My  new  technique  "tissu-mâché"

I discovered this technique, similar to papier-mache, with my experiments with textile hardeners. Therefore, more correctly it can be called tissu-mâché , very resistant and not subject to external influences.
Eco-friendly fabric hardener, can be used for solidification of natural materials,
which have a porous structure like textiles, paper, cardboard, leather, yarn, yarn and combine techniques with papier-mâché, polymer clay, etc. At the same time, hardened fabrics become very hard and not exposed to external influences.
In the course of the work, I tried to make the mass as papier mache and also technique of the gluing of little pieces, but precisely from pieces of cloth, no paper. It dries very quickly, but it is quite enough to use the techniques as in the papier-mache technique

inside the wire frame (+ foil and paper scotch for volume).
All the rest of the textiles (cotton and silk), treated with fabric hardeners Powertex and Paverpol.
head and hands modelled (a kind of mass like "papier-mache", but from fabric = textile), inside hollow, covered with cotton jersey (also with fabric hardener).
This is the technique of pasting pieces of cloth on the simple base (after the base should be deleted), then modelling parts from the mass of the tissu-mache (a gum= clay, made from cloth and hardener) and finishing the parts with the method of the gluing with pieces of cloth for the detailing.
Hair and a mark of wings - cotton threads and powertex.
