We had great fun in the office this spring creating a time lapse video  
for a new class – The Book Thief.

Watch as Purple Boots takes a simple lead sculpture – built around an  
old book and using an armature to create a figure – and brings it to  
life. Look carefully at all of the embellishments that are added in  
each stage and the use of the blue Powertex to really make the book  
pop. Old bits of lace, keys and string are combined with elements made  
from self hardening clay to produce interesting effects. At some  
points the details seem to vanish as the Powertex is applied to embed  
them into the base.

Watch further and you will see the use of dry brushing techniques. The  
smallest amount of pigment and Powertex’s own varnish create beautiful  
end results. All those details which seemed to vanish are now  
prominent again and we think the copper compliments the bright blue  
beautifully. A perfect gift for any bookworm and a great decoration  
for the mantle piece of any bookcase at home.

Watch this space for new Powertex workshops.
