How to use Paverpol
A unique property of Paverpol is its relatively fast-drying time, making it possible to finish in just one day, for example a garden sculpture. Heat, from a hairdryer for example, will speed up the drying time.
If you use coloured textiles, possibly with a pattern, they will retain their original brightness as Paverpol dries completely transparent. Alternatively, by adding coloured powder (Pavercolour) to Paverpol, it can be coloured without slowing down the drying time. For example, you can transform white textiles to any colour you like. Pavercolour has 27 colour pigments available which can be combined to make a vast range of shades. To make it easier for you, as well as transparent we stock the most popular colours in premixed options (black, grey, skin colour and bronze)
If the object you create is meant to be placed outside, we recommend varnishing once it has hardened completely, this will help it resist moulding at higher humidity-levels. For best results, we suggest leaving your artwork inside for at least a week to harden completely, before varnishing and placing it outside.
Protect Paverpol in it's liquid form from frost; once it has hardened, however, Paverpol is able to withstand extreme frost.
