Image Transfer by Chibi-Garrador Image Transfer by Chibi-Garrador
After many hours spent trying different methods of image transfer, I finally found a method that has minimum color and quality loss. PLUS, It's really easy to do! The only issue is that the T-shirt transfer paper is kind of expensive, but you can get a lot of transfers done with one package.

I've seen in a video that you can wash the paper and print on it again. Is this true?

Finally, something I can do :) I've been wanting to do this for awhile but had no idea how it was done. Looks like all I have to get though is the iron on transfers.

Out of all of the methods I have tried, this one seems to have the highest success rate of getting a non-junked up, non-spotty image, even with me using the cheapest iron on transfers I could find. Glad to know the Tutorial is useful!

It is. I was going to do some of this last night. But my Mom was the last one to use the printer and didn't tell me we needed color ink so I couldn't print anything off :ohmygod: mothers, pfft (she says sarcastically).

Okay so I tried this tonight. And I did 2 things wrong (thank god for scrap clay to use for testing) 1) I forgot to reverse my images and 2) I don't think I burnished it real well. Because when I removed the paper backing only about half of my image transferred onto the clay. Because there was a bunch of white (color of my clay) spots all over the images. So I guess next time I should use a roller or something to burnish. Because obviously using my hand (mainly my palm and fingers) didn't work too well.

Any tips to do a successful one? I'm trying to do some jewelry image transfers. I was trying to do one image of Russell Crowe in 3:10 to Yuma and another one of Russell Crowe in Les Miserables.

Seems like a good idea, I might try using nail polish or modpodgerather than floor polish as a sealant though

As I've noticed, The transfer doesn't scratch or wear off too easily. So you may not even require a sealant. I wouldn't use nail polish, as it has been known to breakdown clay over time.

According to a lot of articles and polymer clay blogs, Like this one one, Nail polish and a lot of oil based varnishes can react with the cured clay and it can become sticky.
