That looks like a lot of work! Are they heavy? Did you transfer the image with liquid sculpey? I heard you could do that..never tried that.

you won't be able to do that method on black clay. Use white clay. And it is done on raw (unbaked) clay.

ooh I LOVE them!!

Thanks!

hi =) this is my first time posting here.. i have been working with polymer clay alot lately. I love it!

i'm not quite sure about the method you are using for transfering though... but is there some other way to transfer images like that? what about decoupage? Smiley i am quite new still, so still learning things.

I love your work!

blumunster and loidaeg,

Transfers can be done on black, or any "color," clay without affecting the colors of the transfer if a technique using transfer papers "for dark fabrics" is used... those paper create opaque transfers (including any background areas) where most transfer papers create transparent/translucent images.
It can also be done if something opaque is placed between the transfer and the black clay... e.g., thin white clay or gold leaf, etc.
It can also be done if a "decal" transfer is created as an intermediate step (rather than having the decal transferred directly to clay), and the liquid clay used is opaque (i.e., original Liquid Sculpey, or Translucent Liquid Sculpey or another brand of liquid clay mixed with white oil paint).
I guess it should also be possible, if using a decal, to just paint only the area of baked clay where the transfer decal will be placed using white acrylic paint.
Anyway, you get the basic idea...

There are many-many techniques, types of equipment, and supplies that can be used to do image "transfers" onto polymer clay though!... some of them work or look better than others, or work only in given situations, or only in the right combinations, or are more versatile techniques.  In fact, transferring onto clay can be one of the more difficult things to get right unless you just happen to luck into a good combination of variables from the get go --or you don't mind using only magazine page images or b&w images or toner-based images or transfer paper for dark fabrics, or don't mind getting a reversed image or less-than-sharp image, etc.

There are also other materials that can be used to do similar transfer things onto polymer clay... e.g., clear packing tape, clear acrylics like acrylic mediums and polyurethanes, etc.

(You can also decoupage an image onto baked polymer clay just like any other hard surface but technically that wouldn't be a "transfer."
A form of decoupage could be done on the surface of raw clay too, or inside a depressed frame area of clay, etc.  In that case a permanent white glue or liquid clay would probably be used under the paper image, and that glue or materials like gloss polyurethane, epoxy resin, etc. could be put over the paper image after baking, if baking is necessary.)
  
There are several pages at my polymer clay encyclopedia site that cover all the ways I've heard of to do transfers with polymer clay  Shocked and also some of the "decoupage" methods, if you want to check them out:
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/transfers.htm
....might want to check out the sub-category called Easiest Methods first, and use those till you get the general idea
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/mixing_media.htm
...click on Paper of All Kinds
also using epoxy resins with polymer clay, etc:
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/other_materials.htm... >In Permanent Cells or >Coating
also more-traditional decoupage:

Have fun!

thank you!! =) I love learning new things. I am trying to read as much as I can about transfers before starting anything. I will definitely check out those links. Cheesy

one thing I have not had luck on, even googling doesn't help...is ...What kind of paper can I use for transfers? I've read tissue (almost like the kind used for gifts) can be used...and magazine papers... but what other type of paper? Plain printer paper won't help I'm guessing? What about picture paper? Or anything else? Smiley thanks!

Or anything else?

It's hard to answer that question because various kinds of papers (plain paper, photo and other clay-coated papers, special transfer papers, vellum, etc, etc.) can be used to make transfers, depending on the kind of machine that's used for getting the image onto it, the type of ink or toner used, and even the transfer method used and whether it's a direct transfer or an intermediary decal, etc.  You'll find loads of info about all that on the Transfers page I linked to below though.
P.S.  If you have questions after reading the info, etc., it'd be a good idea to ask them over on the Discussions and Questions polymer clay board so they'll get seen by more people  Grin)

HTH,

Diane B.
