Beeld King of Hearts

Mixed Media Sculptures

While I prefer making paintings, I also enjoy doing other things and create sculptures using techniques I have learned. In these cases, I use Powertex mixed with all kinds of fabrics and other materials to shape the figure. I also use the Powertex to create my own clay. Coloring the figure is done in various ways, including painting and brushing on paint, metallics and pigments. It’s enjoyable to do and created enjoyable results.

Most of these artworks are sold. I do NOT sell them through Etsy, because shipping is not easy to realize. I offer these at this website For Sale. If you would like to receive more information about encaustic in the house – or about a certain artwork – you can always send me an e-mail.

Used materials in Mixed Media Sculptures

I only use quality materials.
I made these sculptures with Powertex. It gives me lots of possibilities. Often I use various fabrics and applications, that are painted after they are hardened. I also make my own clay from Powertex.
The foot of the sculpture is made from gypsum concrete or from a special iron pin with a flat surface to stand on.

For coloring the artwork I use Amsterdam Experts Acrylics and Inks, Fluids and High Flow Acrylics from Golden, and other various professional brands. The paint is highly pigmented and the colors are bright and deep and they will last. Besides acrylics I also use pigments, metallic, powders and so on, all from the known professional brands and way to much to mention here in a list.
I also use various mediums (thinners, thickers, gels) of professional brands like Golden and Liquitex.

I varnish all my artwork for protection and perhaps for a little shine. Some of my artwork is varnished in a Matt finish.
