Seen here with the 4 cm Eve outline cutter, 4 cm Orchid outline cutter, and the 4 cm Boho Heart outline cutter. 

This pattern is also available as a Texture Sheet

Using your Silk Screen with Acrylic Paint

  • Place your screen, shiny side down, onto a smooth clay slab.
  • Gently press or roll the screen into the clay. Don’t press too hard. You don’t want the clay to push up into the screen mesh and get suck.
  • Apply a line of heavy body acrylic paint to one end of the screen. Use a card or squeegee to draw the paint across the surface of the screen. Again, don’t press too hard; this may cause the paint to scrape back up off the clay.
  • Once your pattern is covered, lift the edge of the screen to check to make sure your pattern is printed properly. If you want to add more paint, lay the corner back down and repeat the paint application. If you are satisfied with it, peel the screen off and admire your pattern!

Cleaning your Silk Screens

  • After you peel your screen off your clay, immediately submerge the screen into a container of cool water and rub the paint off of it with your fingers or another similarly soft tool or brush. If you do not immediately clean your screen, the acrylic paint will dry in the mesh and you wont be able to use your screen again.
  • These screens are very durable, but will crease if folded. Store your screens flat to avoid any creasing.

Tips and Tricks

  • Paints may react differently depending on the paint and brand of clay you're using. Some clays and may remain tacky and never dry. Some may dry initially and then become tacky again a day later.  Always test your acrylic paint on your clay before using screens. 
  • Let the paint dry fully on your clay before cutting shapes into the slab.
  • Most acrylic paints can be removed from your scraps with rubbing alcohol.
  • It is normal for the screens to stain. They will still be useable as long as the paint is cleaned out of the mesh.
