Amazing Fa-Brick — Type II Water Resistance Sculpting Medium Fabric Hardener
Amazing Fa-brick is a transparent textile and decoration hardener. Dip nearly any porous natural materials, such as textiles, into Amazing Fa-brick and it will become stiff and rigid when dry. Drape or wrap your fabric around a wire figure, paper mache or other armature to make sculptures from fabric. Dries transparent or add colored pigment powder to give a new look to your sculpture. After your sculpture has dried, you will have a water resistant work of art which can be used indoors as well as outdoors. For outdoor use where direct rain contact or high humidity is likely, it is recommended your sculpture be sealed with Lacquer. Amazing Fa-brick is a water based polymer. Therefore, it is easy to clean up with water. It will not adhere to plastic and is ready to use directly from the container. Amazing Fa-brick Fabric Hardener comes in a variety of sizes from 8 floz.(~250ml) trial size to a 5 gallon (~19 liters) pail.

Amazing Fa-Brick is a water based fabric hardener with a Type II water resistance rating. This means you can get it wet, but if you put your sculpture in the rain, it will not keep its shape over time. If you want your outdoor sculpture to be protected against water damage, you will need to seal it. We’ve found two products which work well for this. First is Krylon Lacquer in clear gloss, part number 7032. Second is Rust-Oleum Lacquer in clear, part number 1906830. Both products come in a spray can and can be found in most hardware and paint stores. Your outdoor sculpture should be thoroughly dry (could take up to 3 days, depending on humidity and temperature) and rock hard before applying the lacquer spray. Apply lacquer to the Amazing Fa-Brick treated fabric. This will turn your water resistant sculpture into a waterproof sculpture!
Winter Shipping: Unlike other fabric hardeners, Amazing Fa-brick has been formulated to be freeze/thaw stable. So you can order Amazing Fa-brick anytime, even in the dead of Winter!
Shake well before use. Place fabric into bowl. Wear gloves and work Amazing Fa-Brick liquid into your fabric until saturated. Wring out as much excess liquid as possible. Your fabric should feel damp, not dripping wet. Take paper towels and blot any excess liquid from the fabric. If you can see blobs of liquid on the fabric, you have too much liquid remaining, keep blotting to prevent yellow/orange discoloration from the type II water resistance ingredient. Now your fabric is ready to sculpt into the shape you want. Working time is about 15 minutes. Drying time varies with temperature and humidity. Tip: make Amazing Fa-Brick thinner by diluting with up to 5% water (distilled water is best.)
