Paul Kmetko: Stenciling on Enamel–Tips and Easy to Make Tool
Share this event:
Stencils are commonly used in enameling and they can be tricky to manipulate. Nothing is worse than carefully applying powder to your design and jostling the stencil whilst trying to remove it… Not only does it waste precious material, it can be very frustrating. In addition just laying a stencil down on top of the work doesn’t guarantee a snug fit and powder will creep under boundary zones. In order to solve the problem I went back to my roots in screen printing and devised a solution that solves both problems at once. It started as a low tech device with a easily available clamp fixture that can be modified with minimal effort almost anybody.
Paul will share this device and how to make a low-tech version of it, as well as giving tips on stenciling on enamel at this month’s MBMAG Speaker Series.
Paul is a silver smith, enamel artist and the owner of Seabright Metalworks in Santa Cruz.
