We’ve had several letters and comments, requesting an easy way to do image transfers. Well, we opened up the mailbag, and found a glowing recommendation to share with our readers! Here’s the letter:
My friends and fellow PCAGOE (Polymer Clay Artists Guild Of Etsy) members, Ilysa Bierer and Kira Slye sell it at their website at www.polymerclayproductions.com and it is the easiest way to transfer images to polymer clay ever!
The paper is for use with laser printers only. You print your image from a laser printer, burnish it to the raw, conditioned clay and then soak in water for a couple of minutes. The paper dissolves, leaving the image in all its glorious color on the clay. Or, you can burnish and bake the paper right on the clay and then run it under water. The paper still dissolves, leaving your image intact.
Here are a few examples of what I’ve done with the MTP. Ilysa and Kira will send you a sample to try if you contact them. I buy it by the 20 page pack about once a month. I will never go back to agonizing over messy, goopy liquid clay, decal type, or filmy residues again!
