Printing on Glass, Wood, Pottery, and Canvas Using the Same Stencil!

Exploring the Versatility of EZScreen Stencils: Printing on Wood, Glass, Canvas, and Pottery

Are you ready to dive into the world of screen printing? Today, I'm thrilled to share my recent adventure of printing on four different materials using an EZScreen stencil. Here's a little look into the process and some tips for achieving great results.

Materials You'll Need:


Printing on Glass

First up, printing on glass. I love using acrylic ink for glass surfaces. Here's how I did it:

  1. Spray the stencil with repositionable spray and let it dry (a crucial step I initially overlooked!).
  2. Lay the stencil on the glass, apply the ink, and use a squeegee to press the ink through the stencil.
  3. If you encounter residue from the spray when you peel off the stencil, a little cooking spray and paper towel scrubbing will clean it up nicely.


Printing on Wood

Next, let's move on to wood. Since I'm using the same acrylic ink as for the glass, there's no need to rinse the stencil:

  1. Lay the stencil on the wood surface.
  2. Use the squeegee to push the ink through the stencil.
  3. Peel off the stencil, and voila! You've printed on wood.


Printing on Pottery

Printing on bisque-fired pottery adds a unique touch:

  1. Use a jelly pad to help with the curved surfaces.
  2. Rinse the stencil to remove any previous ink.
  3. Apply underglaze to the stencil and use the squeegee to push it through.
  4. Roll your pottery piece over the jelly pad to transfer the design.


Printing on Canvas

Lastly, let's tackle a canvas bag:

  1. Rinse the stencil to switch inks.
  2. Lay the stencil on the canvas.
  3. Push the ink through the stencil with a squeegee.
  4. Gently peel away the stencil to reveal your design.



These are just a few examples of the versatility and reusability of EZScreen stencils (And by no means an exhaustive list of what you can print on. The possibilities are endless!) Whether you're customizing glass, adding a design to a canvas bag, or personalizing pottery, the process is simple and fun. What should I try printing on next? Let me know in the comments!

Happy printing!
