Black and White Image
The above image was done just as it was printed without adding any color.
The images featured here were done using Translucent Liquid Sculpey - Bakable Transfer & Color Medium.
These are my first batch of image transfers done with the Translucent Liquid Sculpey. I hope to try out another transfer using colorful magazine images
I colored the printed image with color pencils before adding the Translucent Liquid Sculpey.
Hmmm... I think I will need to experiment further to see why the black printed lines seem to have bleed a little and causing the picture to be not so crisp and sharp compared with the one above.
Supplies Used for Image Transfer
- Translucent Liquid Sculpey
- Oven or toaster
- Scrap paper
Step-by-step Directions for Transferring Images
- Cut out the photocopied image.
- Lay photocopied image on a piece of scrap paper. The image should be facing up.
- Pour Translucent Liquid Sculpey onto the image.
- Use a small paint brush to spread out the liquid - make sure the whole image is coated with the liquid.
- Place coated image with the scrap paper into the toaster. Heat for 2 minutes.
- Take out and soak in tap water.
- Rub the back with your thumb to get rid of the paper.
- Dry and attach to your creation.
Notes: The colored image was done by coloring the black and white photocopied image with color pencils before applying the Sculpey Liquid.
