The original Ikonart Stencil Film is designed to be used with the Ikonart Custom Stencil Kit to create custom, reusable silkscreen stencils. Blue stencils are perfect for glass, mirrors, ceramic, chalkboards, and all smooth, flat surfaces. The adhesive is gentle enough so the stencils won't distort when you are removing them from these types of smooth surfaces.
Ikonart Smart Screen Stencils are the fastest, smartest, and easiest way to create custom stencils at home. Create customized stencils in three simple steps!
EXPOSE - Expose printed image onto the Ikonart Stencil Film using theIkonart Custom Stencil Kit. Exposure time is 35 seconds using the Ikonart light stand. Please note that exposure times will vary if you use a different exposure light. We highly recommend using our Ikonart exposure unit for the best results.
RINSE - Rinse film to reveal your stencil!
After your stencil dries, you are ready to start using your stencil. The possibilities are endless!
Our original Ikonart Stencil Film is designed to be used with the Ikonart Custom Stencil Kit to create custom, reusable silkscreen stencils. These blue stencils are perfect for glass, mirrors, ceramic, chalkboards and other smooth, flat surfaces. The adhesive is gentle enough so the stencils won't distort when you are removing them from these types of smooth surfaces.
If you are looking for stickier stencils for shirts, tea towels, pillow covers, fabric, textiles, wood, or other textured surfaces, check out our Ikonart Textile Film. This new purple film was specifically designed for DIY screen printing on textiles, but the more aggressive adhesive makes it the perfect choice for wood projects as well.
NOTE ON POST-EXPOSURE
Post-exposing our Ikonart Stencil Film will increase the durability when reusing your stencils! After you washout and dry your stencil for the first time, just pop it back under the exposure light for a minimum of 2 minutes (we recommend 2-3 minutes; you cannot over post-expose the film). This step is absolutely necessary to increase the durability when washing and re-washing your stencil for multiple uses. 2-3 minutes will give you more durability for a wide variety of washout conditions.
NOTE: When ordering your stencil film, don't forget to also order either Inkjet Printer Film or Laser Printer Film so you can make your stencils!
