Thanks to Ilysa and Kyra, I got to play with my new silkscreens yesterday.  I initially had alot of trouble getting a good coverage of paint onto the clay but I found I had much better coverage of paint if I stippled rather than dragged the paint.

Now because I love creating beads and cabs I wanted to be able to manipulate the clay after creating the silkscreened veneer.  This was an easy process so a huge success in my opinion.  What a great way to create a decorative sheet of clay.

Let me show you:



I tried a variety of paints, I even created my own metallic paint by adding plain sparkle mica to some plain blue paint…..yummy!!



I decided to create a range of “sheets” for bead and cabachon covering.  I haven’t used these ones yet!
The process was easy and very addictive.  Not sure how long the sheets will last but will keep some for a while so I know.  Hmmm think I’ll be silkscreening again today!!!
