I haven’t updated you on how the Steampunk Pencil Pot for work is going in a while, when I left you I had just added the swirls of t-shirts yarn. As it is one of my UFO Projects for May 2015 – I thought I better get going with it.
My next step was to add some MDF cogs and wheels as well as polystyrene balls and whilst it was drying it looked like this:
The idea of adding the balls and the cogs was to add texture. there is no glue involved as Powertex is a very powerful adhesive and everything sticks to everything else. The swirls were not completely dry when I stuck the cogs to the pot – this allows me to be able to push them in.
Now I know Black on Black on Black does not a good picture make but I hope this shows some of the close up detail. This is the first time I have used polystyrene and I found that it needed a couple of coats. Has anyone got any suggestions for using Polystyrene for outdoor Powertex Projects?
This is now drying happily away and I am waiting to add the pigment.
Thanks for Reading
