Magic Transfer Paper


I purchase Magic Transfer Paper from www.polymerclayproductions.com/ to make these pendants. Here I have started the process by transferring these images onto white clay. (I will post new pictures when they are completed.) I wanted to let you know that they are so vibrant and bright because Ilysa of Polymer Clay Productions has a new method of transferring the images onto the clay. Once she has decided on her images, she copies them onto photo paper and then onto the Magic Transfer Paper. It makes quite a difference in the color and clarity of the images. If you would like to know more about this technique, just let me know and I will give you all the information.

I am interested in the technique. Why do you have to print to photo paper and transfer paper?

Magic transfer paper by Polymerclayproductions is a great new product. If you copy your images onto photo paper and then with a laser printer onto the MFP, the images are clear and bright. Once on the MTP, they are burnished onto light colored clay and then the paper is washed off leaving a great image.

I am interested in this technique. When I clicked on the website, a warning came up saying it could harm my computer. Is this an error?

Which Magic Transfer paper do you use?

A Little About Me

I'm retired from Stony Brook Hospital (administrative), and since then have been exploring the wonderful medium of polymer clay. I have two children, and two grandchildren, 5 years old and two years old. They are truly a joy. I am married to the same guy for 41 years. He's supportive of my art and teaching. I'm a Law and Order Junkie and love all books by James Patterson, the Eagles music and Billy Joel.

Proud member of the Polymer Clay Artist Guild of Etsy

Since May of 2007 I have been a member of the Polymer Clay Artist Guild of Etsy. Etsy is an online marketplace for buying and selling all things handmade. The website, which launched in 2005, has an online community that includes tutorials, downloads, blogs, and a variety of articles on the latest in handmade artistry. In 2006, started by Ilysa Bierer, the Polymer Clay Artists Guild of Etsy (PCAGOE) was formed. Today 87 members strong, PCAGOE provides a forum for polymer clay artists to showcase new and exciting techniques, discuss designs and materials, problem solve, and even encourages friendly competition with a monthly challenge. The Guild has supported with the artistry, time and consideration of its members, many different charities. This past spring, tiny clay decorated Bottles of Hope were designed by many members to be donated to cancer patients at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Massachusetts.
