DIY Gnome

You will start by sculpting the body of the DIY gnome using a polystyrene base, aluminum foil, and masking tape to secure the aluminum foil if necessary.
Once satisfied with the body and shape, you will add various Paverpol products to your modern gnome sculpture. Your gnome sculpture will need some drying time, and this is where you will go on a treasure hunt for the feet and buttons. Stones are available from the Esmeric Art Studio for you to choose from, or bring your own if you have some. You can also bring other items for feet and buttons if you have something specific in mind. Please remember that Paverpol only adheres to natural fibers and elements; therefore, plastic buttons will not be suited. However, two options are available: covering the plastic buttons with aluminum foil or masking tape and adding Paverpol. This option might take away from the overall look you wanted with your choices. The second option is to use glue to glue the feet and buttons to your gnome’s body rather than using Paverpol as glue.
Finally, you will start adding color to your gnome sculpture. Leave your Paverpol garden gnome to dry for two to three weeks, add sealant, and let dry before placing it in your garden.
