I have seen the spatter screens used mostly for watercolor and was wondering if anyone had any experience with a spatter screen and acrylics or acrylic inks.

I sometimes use a splatter screen when cooking :) Not the answer you are looking for. But actually you raise a good idea, Howard. I could use one when I do acrylic marbling.

I have also wondered about using them with acrylic. Can't experiment because I don't have one. :( :lol:

Rather than buy a screen I decided to try and make one. I had some very fine copper/brass screen and cut a 3" square of it. Then applied acrylic ink and sprayed it with a canned air product.....and it worked.
