I adore this photograph that Michele took of the unicorn I made as my sample for our Powertex Garden Party last summer and guess what, I am getting to do it again on Saturday 17th November when I will have a lovely group coming to my studio to share a day of fabulous crafting fun!
Watch this space and I will share some images of this weekends makes in our The Powertex Studio group over on Facebook, you may have to ask to join but as long as you are nice you can be sure we will let you in!
If you missed out on this special workshop keep an eye on the SPECIAL EVENTS section on the Powertex UK website, we will have lots going on next year. 😉

So this month has seen the Hochanda launch of my latest online tutorial!
It’s not too late to get your copy, it’s easy to buy, if you click on the image above it will take you straight to the Powertex UK website.
Access is for life so you can watch it as many times as you like.
I am going to be doing more of these, they will vary from shorter projects that will be suitable for a beginner and longer more in depth ones for those of you who have been using Powertex for a while and feel you are ready to move on to the next level. There will also be some FREE view quick and easy technique tutorials added as I go.
Of course no online tutorial is the same as going along to one of our fabulous team of Certified Tutors, not only will you have the benefit expert hands on help but you will enjoy a social event at the same time. If you think this is more for you please register for our tutor directory to find your nearest tutor, you can do that here
Carry on Powertexing!
With the discovery of coloured bister and Brusho paints I just had to take the time to apply them to a Powertex piece.
I have always loved mixed media, this being the very reason I started using Powertex in the first place, long story but here we are today distributing the products in the UK.
I have used Powerprint here to transfer the image of the child and Easy coat glossy to decoupage the other image. I created texture with Easy structure and stencils from my stash. I crackled ivory Powertex hardener using my coloured bister and sprinkled granules of it over areas with a spray of water for extra effect. I also used Brushos both diluted and sprinkled for some intense colours and those runs. Instead of ink I used black Powertex hardener on my acrylic stamps too, works a treat!
That’s just about it! More details and tutorials will follow, I hope you join me!
