This listing is for 1 silk screen measuring approx. 5 " X 3 ¾ ".
Ready to use silk screens designed for use with polymer clay. Though, they can be used on any surface you can silk screen. Also can be used to etch glass. (They do not come with a frame. This is the silk screen only.) The example picture depicts the black areas as being the paint.
Silk screens are made to order. May take 4 - 6 business to create your order and will be shipped the next day.
My clear stamp & silk screen Angel Policy: You are free to use the hand stamped or silk screened images on cards, jewelry, fabric, polymer clay, etc. as much as you like, but your items must be truly handmade. This applies even on stuff you will sell. I just ask that the image itself is not reproduced mechanically with a printer or digitally with a computer and then sold. The image may not be mass produced mechanically or digitally on items such as greeting cards, stationary, e-card, digital stamps, etc. You can not stamp or screen an image and then use that image to create another stamps or silk screen. That is copyright infringement and illegal. I make and sell clear stamps & silk screens so I can afford to to pay my bills. :)
Because of misuse of my design images I have added a logo watermark to the display images for all my stamps and silk screens. This of course will not be present on the finished product that will be delivered to you.
I have begun using a new silk screen product and it is pink. It is said to be more durable and longer lasting if taken care of properly. There is no longer a shiny side and a dull side. One side is brighter in color and one side a duller in color. The dull side is the back side. Nice thing about this new type of silk screens is you can use them from either side. BUT… You need to dry them bright side up or they will stick to the paper towel.
How to use your silk screen: Place the silk screen bright side down on your surface. Put a line of paint along one edge. (I recommend heavy body paint in a tube, but most paint will work fine if it is not too runny.) Pull the paint across the stencil with a squeegee or on old credit card. Remove the stencil by slowly lifting up from one side. Repeat this process to quickly screen another image or place the screen in cool water.
How to care for: Place your silk screen in a bowl of cool water as soon as you finish with it to keep the paint from drying and clogging up the screen. You DO NOT want the paint to dry on the screen. It will clog up the material and not work properly. Clean your silk screens with cool tap water. If you must scrub the screen, use a natural sea sponge and ONLY scrub on the dull side. Let it dry on a paper towel and re-use after it’s dry.
Glass etching creams won't hurt the silk screen. Etch glass with the same stencil over and over again. When etching glass I just lightly wet the screen to let it stick to the glass then gently spread the etching cream over the screen. Or you can use a light coating of stencil adhesive spray to keep in in place.
