All the silk screen stencils are designed and made by us in our studio.
THIS IS A SILKSCREEN, NOT AN OPEN CUT OUT STENCIL FOR TRACING, BUT A MESH. THE MESH MATERIAL HAS AN IMAGE EMBEDDED ALLOWING ONE TO PUSH PAINT THROUGH IT ONTO A SURFACE TO RECREATE THE IMAGE.
Reusable silk screens are great for creating unique designs on polymer clay or other various surfaces. A must have tool for every clay maker.
Pattern Size: 7,5x11cm
TIPS ( how to use silk screen) : 1. Prepare your work area: Polymer Clay, Acrylic Paint or Chalks, Silk Screen, Old credit card ( or squeegee), a bowl of cold water and cutters. 2. Roll out a sheet of clay and place the silk screen with Logoon top of the clay. 3. Use a credit card to make the silk screen flat and smooth ( Please use a PLASTIC tool or rubber squeegee. A metal scraper may damage your screen ) 4. Squirt water base pain or chalk at the top of your design from edge to edge. 5. Use credit card at a 45 degree angle to drag the paint across the screen evenly. 6. Remove the silk screen by lifting up from one side. 7. Immediately put the silk screen into a bowl of cold water (or running water) while the paint is still wet. Gently rinse the silk screen to get rid of all paints. DON#39;T LET THE PAINT DRY ON SILKSCREEN!!! 8. Us a paper towel to get rid any excess water and leave it on the table for drying. 9. Then you can cut shapes with cutters
TIPS - Avoid oil based paints, I recommend a good quality, high pigment acrylic paint. - Slightly sticky feeling on the screen after you wash it,- it is a normal process and it will not get any impact for your further use.
