How to use silkscreens and chalk to create patterns on polymer clay

I am excited to say that Kira has been hard at work designing new silkscreens for the shop and I am having a blast trying new things with them. Join me on Polymer Clay TV and see our new silkscreens with a chalk design that gives a beautiful Damask look when your project needs something more subtle than paint. I also share a new mold that will unlock your secrets. LOL Not really but it will unlock some fun possibilities! Enjoy!

What type of chalks are those?

Ok those silk screens are wonderful, I love how subtle the chalk is. I do have a question though. My daughter asked if she could bake clay in the mold and then pop it out. I told her no because I know that you can't with the amazing mold putty that I have used before. So did I tell her wrong?

I tried the clay with chalks silkscreen . I baked as instructed. Then I wanted to add some more color so I used gild paste in a few places waited a bit rubbed it to get the shine and most of the chalk came right off. I tried again and didn't use paste just chalk baked it an put a gloss finish on it and the chalk moved into the varnish and spread around the piece. Any ideas how to make chalk hold and not come off or move around after baking?
