The textiles and decoration hardener par excellence! Dip natural materials, such as textiles, in Paverpol. Drape or wrap the material around a wire figure or other armature and leave it to dry. Paverpol dries fast, but slowly enough to allow plenty of working time. After it has hardened, you have created a beautiful decoration or sculpture, which can be used indoors as well as outdoors.

Paverpol dries completely transparent. Colored textiles, possibly with a pattern, retain their original brightness. By adding colored powder (Pavercolor) to Paverpol, Paverpol can be colored without slowing down the drying time. It is also possible to combine Paverpol with paper, silk, chamois leather, self-hardening clay, polystyrene foam, dried flowers, wood, plaster, pottery, etc. Paverpol adheres to almost all materials, except plastic. The finished projects are rock-hard. Paverpol Transparent; A sculpture made with Paverpol Transparent and meant to be placed outside needs to be either painted with weather-resistant paint or varnished with Josefine’s Varnish. Do this after two weeks of curing (or longer in high-humid areas). Sculptures made with pre-colored Paverpol or Paverpol Transparent that have been colored with Pavercolor can only be placed outside after two weeks of curing. Also, it is important that you have wrapped the sculptures in a way that it is not possible that water can get in between the fabric and the frame. This will prevent it from moulding. Protect Paverpol in its liquid form from frost, once it is hardened however Paverpol can withstand extreme frost. Tools and hands can simply be washed in warm water. Available in transparent, Black, Bronze, Lead and Terracotta 500 gram, 1000 gram and 6000 gram containers.


This is a pigment powder that can be mixed with Paverpol to change the transparent Paverpol into the color of your choice. The powders can be combined to make custom colors.
Mix the powder with a small amount of water before you add it to Paverpol. This prevents it from becoming lumpy. The Pavercolor metallic colors will loose their luster when mixed with Paverpol; however, the luster can be retained by brushing the dried piece of work with the Pavercolor metallic color mixed with Josefine gloss varnish.
All Pavercolors can be mixed with water to obtain water paint. However, this technique can only be used for indoor pieces of work.
For outdoor objects (i.e. garden sculptures) you can mix Pavercolors with Josefine gloss varnish. It is then a proper outdoor paint that can be used for painting, brushing and adding patina effects.
Available in 28 colors - to see color samples.

A 100 % cotton fiber. When dipped in the Paverpol and squeezed out well, it can be used to make hair/wigs for the Paverpol figurines. It can also be used to make creative dishes.
Project idea: Cover a dish with cling film and put the Pavercotton tuffs dipped in Paverpol on one side of the cling film. The dish is only to be used as a mould, and will not be damaged. After it has dried and hardened (for at least one week) you can take the dish off. The side that was covered by plastic will still need to dry. You have to be patient for this, but if you do, you will end up with a unique cotton dish which can be used as a creative decorative bowl. Available in bags of 50 grams.

Stockinette is a very stretchy, open-weave knit used as decoration to clothe figurines. Once the Stockinette is dipped in Paverpol, it stretches in length and will become twice as long.

Available in 1 meter bags

It can also be used to decorate greeting cards or for scrap booking. Available in bags of approx. 30 x 50 cm.

A fun product! Art Stone can be used in two different ways. You can use it to make self-hardening clay, or you can use the powder to creat a stone-look finish to your sculptures.
To make a stone finish, use Paverpol lead color or Paverpol transparent mixed with Pavercolor Siena as a basis. (Of course, you can also mix with other Pavercolors if desired.)

You can use a preformed figure of Styrofoam, plaster, paper mache, or kitchen foil covered with masking or floral tape).
Mix the colored Paverpol with the same amount of Art Stone Decoration Powder until the clay is one lump that no longer sticks to your hands.
Cover your form completely with the colored Paverpol. Put the clay fully or partially onto the layer that is still wet—layer thick or thin, coarse or fine, whatever you like. Make sure that the bottom layer is wet. (If needed, apply a new layer of Paverpol using the brush.)
When your work is fully or partially decorated with the clay, scatter some powder over it and rub it in well. Apply some Paverpol with a brush if the base has become too dry. You can also scatter a little Paverpol on the wet layer and rub it afterwards.
This stone effect is not suitable for outdoor objects. If you want to leave the piece of work outside, you can use patina instead of powder, which can be made by mixing white Pavercolor with Josefine gloss varnish. Apply with a brush. Remove the surplus patina with a tissue. Let the work dry and make it glossy with a lint-free cloth.
To make jewelry: Create stones of clay, use a skewer to make holes in them, and get a leather lace to thread the beads.
Available in tub of 200 grams.
