As an experienced Paverpol user, I have enjoyed working with patterned fabric and showing its lovely designs to enhance my sculptures.
So, my tip is this:
Search out 100% cotton patterns. I like small repeating patterns, so when they are on the sculpture, they look proportionate to the figure. To highlight the fabrics pattern the way you want it to be seen in the "clothing" of the Paverpol figure. measure and pre-cut your pieces exactly or as close as possible to what you need. Then pour a small amount of transparent Paverpol into a container, and dip your pieces of clothing one piece at a time, and thoroughly work it through the fabric. Apply the piece onto the sculpture (note: if you are using a thin fabric, the colour of the body may show through. If you want to avoid this, cover the Paverpol figure with white t-shirt strips wherever the clothing will go, to minimized or eliminate this problem.)
Note that transparent Paverpol is ideal for exterior sculptures.
