CreateAlong polymer clay silkscreen stencils are not the typical tiny "plastic" type everyone else sells. Ours are larger, and we have developed a highly-detailed and durable process of our own to create our product line. This means with proper care your stencil will last a long time! Every screen comes with instructions. Our screens are 110 mesh- which means particles smaller than 110 microns can fit through them (mica powders, glitters, and paints with these sparkle particles in them).
These silicone mats are created with heat-safe (to 400F) rubber. You can stick them to an acrylic block to make them stiff like a rubber stamp, or you can fold them and put clay between them for allover texture (think about pendants and earrings with texture on both sides!) Use them with inks, powders, and even pour resin on them to cure into a texture. Bake liquid clay on them in the oven! These come in orange or blue silicone colors.
Fun relief stamps- this means when you press these hard acrylic plastic stamps to your clay, a design will "pop up" from the clay surface. You can either press the clay into the stamp and release, or press the stamp onto your clay surface. Try each way, different people prefer different ways of working with these. If your clay is sticky be sure to try using something as a release- this means a spritz of water or silicone spray, powdering your clay first with cornstarch or mica, or some other way of making it not too sticky.
These stencil patterns are made of sturdy and thick 10 mil mylar. These are considerably thicker than most on the market, so that you can use them over and over to create block out patterns (put powders, glitter, paint, ink, metal leaf, and more through the stencil). Run them through the pasta machine with your clay or use an acrylic rod for stunning bold raised textures!
We started designing 3d printed cutters in 2016, and imported a fleet of printers from the BEST maker in the world. We then found an amazing designer to help us create SHARP cutters with great details, such as a raised rib to give strength to the overall design and a place for fingers to hold onto, a 10mm height so you can cut thick or thin pieces of clay, and fun shapes in various sizes great for jewelry and layering in your art.
