hye i tried this techniques my own:

[photo and text color/size removed]

is it because of the picture. i photocopied the picture and use nail remover to transfer it. i pressed like a bodybuilder but it doesn't transfer.. is it because of the nail polish remover? or the photocopied image?

on the bottle of the nail polish remover , written
acetone 30%
alcohol 35.9%
lanolin oil 0.1%
dimethyl silicone 3%
perfume 1`%

is it because of not enough acetone in it?

trued using turpentine. it dont work. duh![/size][/color]
It could defiantly be the nail polish remover. The one I used last week said "100% maximum strength nail polish remover.  It could also be the texture of what you're trying to transfer onto. I did two items- a smooth toped box and a notebook that had an almost paper grocery bag feel. The smooth box looked great and the image increadable crisp where the notebook looked blurry and took a lot more to transfer the image...

Will this work on polyester/satin ribbon I bought from Michael's to make my own personal labels for softies or garments?  i want it to be washable, but it seems like washable-ness is dependent on the type of material you are transferring your image onto.

wow, im so excited about trying this
i'm so glad people have left their advice =) just found out the printers and photocopiers at my dad's work use toner... woo!
my dad also explained that inkjet and bubble printers use liquid ink, and laser printers and such use powder and kind of burn into the paper
..sort of

ok so that probably wasn't worth knowing, but just if anyone was interested ^_^

Um, I am! As I've been reading this post, I've wondered why inkjet wouldn't work. Thanks for answering my question!

so does anyone have ideas for image transfers onto polymer clay?  i tried this (granted it was paint thinner, not lacquer thinner... would that make a big difference) and it's not working at all.  i'm wondering if maybe the image has to be printed with a specific kind of ink.

i used inkjet printer on both baked and non-baked polymer clay and i've had no luck.  is it because it's paint thinner and not lacquer thinner?  i thought they were about the same...

i'm looking to transfer the images in color, but even in just black and white would work.

if anyone has ideas, they'd be greatly appreciated!!!

Inkjet won't do it- inkjet printers use ink, and this method works with toner. It seems that the thinner type doesn't make too much of a difference...

so I took your advice and used a printer with toner too.  It's still not working for me.  I can't even get things to transfer onto muslin, let alone the polymer clay pendants I'm attempting.  Maybe I'm just transfer-illiterate....  What's the nail polish remover technique?  could I have better luck with that?  At this point, i'm willing to try anything.

I've heard that Toner transfers onto polymer clay work best with eucalyptus oil and the technique is slightly different. Theres a good tutorial here:
