Everyone wants to stand out from the crowd. The IKONART Custom Stencil Kit allows you to showcase your individuality by creating custom, reusable stencils that can be used on a variety of surfaces including glass, whiteboard, chalkboard, wood, fabric, clay, leather, canvas, stone, metal, burlap and so much more.
How Do IKONART Stencils Work?
IKONART Smart Screen Stencils are the fastest, smartest and easiest way to create custom stencils at home in just three easy steps: print, expose, rinse. First, you print your custom design onto inkjet printer film or laser printer film (both are included in the kit). Then, you expose your printed image onto IKONART Stencil Film for 35 seconds using a UV LED exposure light (included in the kit). Exposing the film to UV light will harden the areas of the film that are exposed to the light. The areas of the film that are blocked by your printed image will remain water soluble.
After exposure, you rinse your film under warm water to reveal your custom image and when the film dries you are left with a silk screen stencil that can be reused multiple times.
Beneﬁts of IKONART Stencils vs. Vinyl Stencils
The number one benefit of IKONART Stencils versus traditional vinyl stencils is no more weeding! Anyone who has spent countless hours weeding vinyl stencils will understand how important this is. There is a silk screen mesh embedded in the IKONART Stencil Film which holds all of your fine details in place so that you can create custom stencils in a fraction of the time that it takes to create vinyl stencils.
Another benefit of IKONART Stencils is that they are reusable while a vinyl stencil can only be used once. After you are done using your IKONART Stencil, just wash off the paint, dry the stencil, and you can use it again and again.
Introducing IKONART Textile Film for DIY Screen Printing
When we introduced the IKONART Custom Stencil Kit along with our original IKONART Stencil Film in 2019, we wanted our stencils to be able to be used on a wide variety of surfaces. This meant that the adhesive on our original stencils needed to be very light so the stencils could be used on glass, chalkboards, clay, whiteboards and other smooth, flat surfaces. However, as our crafters found new ways to use our stencils, we saw a need for a stencil with a stronger adhesive that could be used for DIY screen printing at home. We are excited to announce that in April of this year we launched IKONART Textile Film. This new purple film has a more aggressive adhesive to make screen printing custom designs at home easier than any other method currently on the market.
The IKONART Custom Stencil Kit makes customization fun and easy so you can display your unique personality to the world. Your only limit is your own imagination and we can’t wait to see what you create.
