I’ve been meaning to show you this for ages, I did have step by step photo’s but I can’t find them so I’ll just talk you through the process for using the Silhouette Cameo to cut masks for lustre painting. Here’s the finished result.
I’ve used dampened paper as a mask for lustres for ages now, but for masking simple shapes, it made sense to try and cut out a more detailed design from printer paper using the Cameo. I used the design as a resist but you can also use the other half as a stencil, it was a bit floppy using printer paper and this design but you could use thicker paper or a simpler design.
So all I did was spray the paper with water and place it on the cleaned porcelain, let it dry then I sponged lustre over. I removed the paper before firing.
Then I applied another coat of lustre over the entire piece and fired again.
I do love my Cameo, I’m finding endless uses for it.
