Use Creative Tools to add intricate patterns and textures to your new mold project! Casting with ceramic molds create uniform pieces that save you time, allowing you to focus on decorating with your favorite glazes and experimenting with various creative tools. Elevate your work by using Mayco's easy-to-use creative tools to create professional and unique works of art.
Designer Stamps & Mats are made of flexible material which allows you to transfer the designs onto rounded surfaces, flat shapes or add texture into the clay. Apply color to Stamps and Mats with a mini foam roller or sponge-on-a-stick to get color in the design areas you like best and gently press onto your design surface. Use a combination of mats for various textures and dimension or apply slight variations of color from the stamp to the background for additional interest. Use stamps to show off the randomness of paint splatter without the extra mess!
Stencils allow you to easily create patterns onto a surface or add texture into the clay. We suggest using a mini foam roller or sponge-on-a-stick to apply color over a stencil. You can also use Stencils with Sculpting Medium. Use a squeegee or plastic card to drag Sculpting Medium across a stencil, add a layer of color on top and remove the stencil to get a raised design. You can even roll a brayer over a stencil to create texture in clay.
Designer Silkscreens provide an easy to use method for adding intricate designs to your work. You can use Silkscreens alone, add color to them, use them as a background or layer them with other screens to create different looks. Talk about versatile!
Mayco Creative Tools may be used on most any surface including ceramic, wood, canvas, paper, fabric, and glass. Using these tools opens up a world of design opportunities!
Silkscreens may be used on curved shapes and in-between tiny creases.
