I am busy pulling together video and samples for my upcoming Craftcast.com class. I’ve been experimenting with making my own customs silk screens using my Silhouette Cameo & Curio . I always look forward to my Craftcast classes. I do quite a bit of research so that my students don’t have to make all the mistakes it takes to perfect a technique.

There are so many possibilities of design, scale, and media that you can silk screen with. This is a design that I got from one of Cindy Pope’s classes on Craftcast.com. Cindy mostly works with Metal Clay and her Silhouette Studio design skills are awesome. They translate very easily to polymer clay.

The other advantage of being able to make your own silk screens is the ability to scale the designs to fit your needs. And you can also crop the designs to fit the shape you want.
And you can even create multi-color screens for your designs.

I have worked with polymer clay for over 18 years. My work has been featured in books and magazines. I have won national and international awards for my pieces. I sell my work at local Fine Craft Shows, in a few Vermont Galleries, Breweries & Home Brew Shops in several states, and on Etsy. I love polymer clay as a medium because it can be used in so many ways.I love experimenting with its properties and the various ways it can be used to create all types of artful and functional pieces.
