You can see the tats show up better on lighter color clays.

Thank you guys on your compliments.  I find temp tats and clay fit very well together, especially people like me that  cannot paint a straight line.  And wonder why the clay tool manufacturers has not found that clayers would so use same concept.  I am picturing all the sets they could group together for sale.  I found my temp tats (of all places) in the cereal aisle of discount store.  And after finding they worked so well, I went back and cleaned out all they had lol.  I apply them to the unbaked clay using wet sponge.  Use same directions as skin application. I did not change any times or temps with my oven.  Now these tats will "pick" off if you do not seal them.  I use future floor polish, and find they stay put pretty good.  I learned in here, that they bake their peices again after using future, I do plan on trying this, but have not YET.

I don't know if any of the clay companies has actually put any of these out (some have put out regular transfers already on paper), but clayers have definitely bought them from all over the place (or more often, made their own tattoos with "decal paper" and a printer)
....there are some tips for using them in various ways if you want to check them out on this page:

(... click on More Transfer Papers, tattoos, etc., under Transfer Papers)

If you do rebake Future (it's not necessary though), just be careful that it's completely dry if it's thick, or it can bubble up  Shocked (possibly from trapped moisture?)... if it's thin, that's not a problem
... also don't use the regular clay baking temperature... 200-250 is defnitely safer!

Good luck!

Thanks DianeB, I am glad you told me about the temperature.  That would be disasterous if I burned finished piece.   Shocked
