LomArtex creations

LomArtex Créations 

Lorraine Babin(right) and Marlyne Galipeau(left) have been friends for 25 years,
and somewhere in our hearts we knew that one day we would be in business together. 
 It was a dream and now with Powertex the dream come through.  
 Together we have taken a course last August  and we were very
impress about the infinite possibility with that product. 
 After having done a few figurines we decide to start a business together.
At the end of September we signed with the Québec distributor
Pin-So as a regional representative for Powertex products. 
In middle of October we had the opportunity to go to the Salon des métiers
d'arts et loisirs créatifs at St-Hyacinthe where we discovered  that
people were very interested by what we were doing and
wanted to take a  course with us and with the products. 
We are planning on opening a retail/classroom space in May

"the ice maiden" by Tracey Evans

I covered my canvas with ivory and lead Powertex hardener in a random pattern. Once fully dried I transferred the image using Powerprint, my main concern here was making sure the Powerprint was spread evenly and didn’t dry out anywhere before I put the image down ready for the transfer, it’s important to be quick and thorough when using a larger image otherwise it can be so disappointing to reveal your image and find a crucial bit hasn’t transferred

I added a little more hardener and gently worked in some Stone Art powder, picking up the texture by dry brushing with ivory Powertex hardener once everything was dry.

I chose some pieces of cotton lace ‘snowflakes’ to embellish my piece and rubbed in ivory hardener before applying them onto my canvas. I then used a stencil and some Easy structure to add interest in my corners, you can see detail of this above.
A touch of silver and gold colortrix and I was done!
What about the little birdcages I hear you ask?
I have no excuse for that, I liked them and felt they were right for the spot!
