This Celtic silkscreen measures approx. 2 3/8 x 4 1/2 inches. The design measures 2 inches. There is a positive and negative image, so you could use 2 colors for the design by painting/screening with one color for one of the screens, letting it dry and then applying a second color with the second screen when placed over the same area as it would block the first color. Second photo shows a .25 cent piece so you can have a better visual of the size.
My handmade silkscreens can be used on Polymer Clay, Fabric, paper and any smooth surface including drinking glasses for etching.
Note: This is not an openwork stencil that can be traced with a pencil, but a mesh with a design whereby paint particles get pushed through the screen onto a surface.
Traditionally acrylic paint is used with these silkscreens, but years ago I wrote some of the polymer clay tutorial examples listed in the photos using chalk, pan pastel, resin and more. The examples are of different silkscreens I make, but will give you an idea on how to use this design.
If using paints, please use Jacquard, Jones Tones or Golden Acrylic Paints or paints with fine particles. For paints you require a squeegee or an old credit card. The Celtic dog was made with paints, the green sun and moon with my low relief or friendship hand tutorial.
Stencils are made to order, so please allow 2 - 3 days for me to get them made.
After using these paints, you should gently wash the screen in warm water as soon as possible as dry paints are hard if not impossible to remove. Let screen dry before using again. Following this direction will extend the life of the screen over many uses.
NOTE: A basic instruction sheet is sent with the silkscreen. I have some photographic Tutorials for sale in my shop for use with polymer clay (photos 2, 3 and 4)
