Trying out make your own stencils that use a photo sensitive silk screening material. I got a mini starter kit here.

My dark room is my basement craft room. Instead of the squeegee that came with the kit I used a childs stiff paint brush. I talked to the maker of the stencil material. All of the material used in making the product are non toxic but since they aren't FDA approved as food safe, I made sure they could be removed and not eaten.

I tried almost an hour to put attachments in this post but of course that option still doesn't work so had to add the photos to my gallery.

I think this has a lot of potential.

Silk screening is used to make cocoa butter transfer sheets - so I would presume that there are screen making materials that have been deemed food-safe.

It's a lot of work - but your really on to something when it comes to lots of type, fine lines and such.

I was looking into silkscreening and it was way over my head. These take 6 minutes to make and the sheets can be cut down to smaller sizes so I don't have to waste much. I would be surprised if these premade stencil sheets contain anything different from the silk screening material but I just avoid the issue.
