What are the best tools to use with the Adhesive Silkscreens?
The best tools to use for silkscreening are sponge pouncers or squeegees.
The squeegee method is ideal for flat surfaces or large spaces. When using a squeegee, apply a small amount of glass paint to your empty area around your screen. Then, using the edge of your squeegee that best suits the dimensions of your artwork, pull your paint across the open areas of the screen using light and even pressure. If you experience bleeding it is likely because you are applying too much pressure while pulling your squeegee across the screen. You should also check to make sure your screen was lying completely flat and had properly adhered to your surface.
The sponge pouncer method is ideal for curved surfaces, intricate areas or small surfaces. When using a sponge pouncer, apply a small amount of paint onto a painter’s palette and dab your tool into the paint. Then lightly dab your sponge pouncer on an empty part of your palette to remove excess paint. Use your tool to dab paint into the open parts of your silkscreen, working quickly with light and even pressure.
