In this time, maybe you have limited supplies or you’re not able to shop for a product. Powertex works well with so many materials, just work with what you have. If you don’t have a jar, try a bottle or box. If you don’t have all the colours of the rainbow, pick your favourites and use those to create a unique rainbow of hope.

This gorgeous jar is a perfect entry for the monthly challenge in April. Create your own rainbow of hope and enter the challenge in The Powertex Studio. Look for the April photo album to enter. Remember one UK entry will win a prize and entries may be featured here in the magazine.
