For those of you that may not have used these innovative stencils before, let us answer some of your questions.
Why Are ECG Mesh Stencils So Good?
There are possibly too many reasons to count, but here are some of the main ones.
No longer will your design be too thick. If using a traditional stencil, it can sometimes leave a design that is raised up from your cake, but with the mesh stencils, you get a very fine, clean, crisp design, giving a much more elegant look and finish.
When using royal icing on traditional stencils it can bleed through, leaving the edges of your finished design smudged or blurred. The mesh stencils solve this issue. These stencils are much easier to pin and hold and when pushing the royal icing through the mesh, you are left with a pristine design. This means there is no need to touch up your finished design, saving you time.
Your design will also dry much quicker as it is so fine and crisp, allowing you to get on with the rest of your decorating at super speed.
What Decorating Mediums Can I Use On A Mesh Stencil?
Mesh stencils work best with royal icing but you can also use piping gel (mixed with a lustre dust of your choice to get that colour and shine), edible paint, cocoa powder and icing sugar. If you are looking for a metallic finish, mix some metallic dust with vodka or rejuvenator spirit, then mix that with some clear piping gel to thicken the mixture, then apply to the stencil as you would royal icing. The only thing we would not recommend is airbrushing. Whilst it will work, you will get a very faint finish.
How Do I Take Care Of A Mesh Stencil?
Hand wash in warm water to clean, dab dry and you will be able to use your stencil over and over again!

Our Warehouse Heroes will be working over the Bank Holiday so your orders will still be picked and packed but we will NOT have a mail collection until Tuesday 26th May. Please be aware that this will affect deliveries placed w/c 18th May and w/c 25th May.
To safeguard our staff and adhere to social distancing we have less staff currently packing in our warehouse. This means that unless you order for next day delivery, your order may not be dispatched the same day.
Our couriers tell us that they are experiencing very large delivery volumes (akin to Black Friday levels) as everyone is now restricted to shopping online.
This means you should expect around 48 hours added to standard delivery times.
90 - 98% of Next Day deliveries are arriving on time.
Our couriers are all working with reduced resources to safeguard their staff which we totally respect.
In short, please allow a little extra time to receive your order (it'll be worth it, we promise!) We're very thankful to the lovely couriers and our Warehouse Heroes working extra hard to deliver happy mail to us in these unprecedented times.
