The perfect tool for transferring EZScreen stencil designs onto ceramic! Our stencils can be used directly on most surfaces, but sometimes the best method is a gel transfer. This method is best for pottery that has a textured surface or a rounded shape instead of flat or cylindrical. Start by laying the stencil on the gel plate and screen printing under glaze with a squeegee (text designs will need to be printed in reverse for this transfer method). Then either roll the ceramic over the gel plate to transfer the design, or press the gel plate onto the ceramic.
Tips for using your gel plate:
If you find the under glaze beads up, dust the gel plate surface with cornstarch or baby powder so the under glaze screen prints smoothly. Thickened under glaze will also help to prevent beading by either letting the under glaze dry out or microwaving small amounts in a microwave safe dish. Pudding like consistency works best.
