Over 500 Silk Screen Designs Available

It seems I can’t stop digging up fun and unusual designs to turn into silk screens.Β  I find I have a thrill for the hunt. This means I am gearing up for another sampler sale which will be held on my Facebook business page this time. I anticipate at least 50 new designs and only the most liked will make it into my Etsy shop, but all will be found for sale on my Facebook business page.Β  Check this album for all the available designs. Be sure to check my Facebook page or here on my blog for updates on the date and time of the Sampler Sale Event.

Here are some images of what new designs to expect in the Sampler Sale. I’ve gotten requests fro smaller designs that would be a better fit for earrings and beads. So hopefully I have hit the mark with some of these designs. πŸ™‚ Once I test them all for usability I will announce the Sampler Sale.

Testing a New Stamp Design Idea

I was asked some time ago about stamps with a positive and negative of the same image. One side will stamp as normal, but the other side when used with polymer clay (or any clay) with result in a raised embossed image. I have been searching for interesting designs and patterns to use and I have a few designs ready to test. Here are some of the new Duo Designs I am planning on adding to the clear stamp line I sell in my Etsy Shop .

New Clear Stamp Designs Are Finished

I spent a great deal of the day finishing the new clear stamp designs and testing them to make sure they worked. I create the stamps with Mokume Gane in mind, but they are just like the clear stamps you buy retail and can be inked up the same way.

Here is a sampling of the new designs:
