You can achieve beautiful effects by screen printing on polymer clay. I was introduced to this technique several years ago when Ellen Marshall, who literally wrote the book on polymer clay surface design, Polymer Clay Surface Design Recipes, encouraged me to take a class with Gwen Gibson, S.L. Savarick, is another polymer clay artist who uses screen printing with breathtaking results.
They all inspired me to create my own designs and see how far I could take this process. You can find my article, Surface Techniques: Silk Screening Polymer Clay, in the Fall 2007 issue of Polymer Cafe Magazine.
In the meantime, please enjoy my slideshow. It includes some things I have come up with while playing with screen printing and polymer clay. This is a journey and I am just getting started!
I am trying to find the silk screening stencils to use on polymer clay. I was directed to Gwen Gibson. I was told she sold the stencils on her site, but I haven’t found them. Any information on where to purchase a stencil would be appreciated.
She used to, but now they are handled by Ginney Eckley. Check out http://www.photoezsilkscreen.com/imagelibrary.htm. Polymer Clay Express http://www.polymerclayexpress.com also carries a line of screen printing stencils
