STENCILS HANDMADE WITH SILICONE CAULK

STENCILS HANDMADE WITH SILICONE CAULK

I created these stencils using clear silicone caulk purchased from a home improvement store.  It came in a toothpaste tube sized tube for $4.

It was probably enough caulk for 20 stencils but I wasted some while I was trying to figure out how to make them.  You need to use parchment paper to put the caulk on so that it won’t stick.  I tried wax paper, clear wrap and butcher paper…these didn’t work.  The stencils stuck to the paper.

The caulk I used was frosted when wet but went to clear when dried.  It took a good day or two before they dried.  After they dried, I removed them from the parchment paper and trimmed any stray caulk with scissors.

A word of warning…they can stick together especially before you start using them.  They were less sticky after they had been used a couple times.  Next time I might coat them in something powdery so they don’t stick together.

I really like the organic look they produce.  I used these to make art journal pages.

It was easy to do!  One of a kind stencils!
