Designer Stencils measure 6" x 6".
Ceramic Surface Decoration: Use the stencil to make patterns on ceramic bisque or greenware by applying with a foam roller your favorite non-moving glazes such as Stroke & Coat® or Foundations® over the unglazed surface or by layering glazes. Use dimensional glazes, such as Stroke & Coat® Accents or Sculpting Medium to create embossed designs.
Texturing Clay: Press stencil into clay to create texture and/or use the stencil as a template to carve designs.
Also be used on any craft surface: fabric, glass, paper, wood, etc. Apply acrylic paint, pastes or other decorating media for intricate designs. These stencils are sturdy - yet pliable enough to warp around a curved surface.
Combine AC-310 Silkscreen Medium with underglazes, Stroke & Coat® or Designer Liner to create a ceramic "paste", which is then rubbed through the screen onto your surface. Designer Silkscreens can also be used with acrylics or fabric paint.
DSS can be used on a variety of surfaces: greenware, clay, earthenware bisque, stoneware bisque or glass. They can also be used on non-ceramic or glass surfaces, such as fabric, wood, paper, etc.
The screen size is 12 1/2" H x 18" long, with the actual printed area measuring 11 1/2" H x 15" long. The screen is laid out with planned gutters to allow for folding without affecting any of the designs (the exceptions are the stripes and chevrons. The screens are lightly folded and the crease does not impact design reproduction). The designs are approximately 3" to 4" at their widest/longest dimension. Click here for instructions.
