CreateAlong polymer clay silkscreen stencils are not the typical tiny "plastic" type everyone else sells. Ours are larger, and we have developed a highly-detailed and durable process of our own to create our product line. This means with proper care your stencil will last a long time! Every screen comes with instructions. Our screens are 110 mesh- which means particles smaller than 110 microns can fit through them (mica powders, glitters, and paints with these sparkle particles in them).
