- Translucent Liquid Sculpey (TLS) or other liquid polymer clay
- Toner copied image. I used a laser printer and my image is printed on Kodak gloss photo paper. Mirror image your print as needed and especially if you are transferring writing
- Baking parchment-I have used Glad Bake
- A flat baking tray, an oven and a oven thermometer. The TLS has a mild smell but is safe to use in your oven in a well ventilated room.
1) Heat set oven to manufactures instructions on your bottle of liquid polymer clay. I used the Sculpey brand so had my oven on 130 degrees Celsius (275-300 degrees F). Use an oven thermometer to check temperature is correct. Place baking sheet on baking tray, image on top and then squeeze TLS all over area you want to transfer
Gently spread it all out evenly and ensure there are no holes/air bubbles. I just used my finger to do this but you can use a palette knife etc if you want
2) Place tray in oven and bake to recommended time on your bottle. TLS recommends 15-30 minutes so I cooked mine for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and allow it to cool to touch. As the TLC bakes it becomes more transparent.
3) Once cool peel off your transfer.
As you can see the transfer is see thru. You can colour it using permanent markers or other mediums if you want
I'll try to make my transfer into a card or something later in the day or the next few days and post it here. I think I may even sew it onto my background I have done above. As I have long had a love of making transfers I think there will be more tipniques featuring them in the future using other media as the transfer agent.
