These are pendants I made in anticipation of the upcoming Squeeze and Sonics concerts here in Seattle:



Here is an image transfer I did from a picture in the Mark of Zorro program I got from the silent movie:



I was pretty happy with the way they turned out. The Squeeze and Sonics  ones remind me of mini lp covers!

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

Those are awesome!  I love the bag-- I'm a huge fan of old B&W TV (but I fear transfers).

If you don't mind me asking, what did you finish the pendants with?  They look nice and glossy.  I've been playing around with jewelry tiles made of pics and polymer clay, but none of the many varnishes I've tried quite works...I keep falling back on wet 'n' wild clear nail polish.

Anyway, terrific job!

Cool, and great to be able to wear to the concerts!

What type of transfer method did you use for the Zorro pic?   And did you use a transfer method for the other ones, or do them as decoupage?

liebling79, what exactly do you mean by your finishes not "working?" 
What is happening?  Which finishes have you tried to use (type, brand)?  And how have you applied them and let dry/cure?   I'm sure we can figure out what's going wrong.
Have you seen this previous post giving a summary of liquid finishes and polymer clay btw?:

That's good stuff if you want a very high gloss.  It's just more expensive by volume than you need.

Zorro isn't actually a bag, it's a plaque to hang on the wall! :-) I drilled holes with a regular power drill and then tied a leather cord onto it. I dotted the knots with nail polish.

For the finish on the pendants I used Diamond Glaze.

I decoupaged the colour photocopies onto the polymer "tiles" then painted decoupage on top. I didn't like how you could see the brush strokes so I coated them with Diamond Glaze.

For the Zorro transfer I used TLS and placed the b x w photocopy face down in it and let it sit for 15 minutes. Then I baked it as normal!

Thanks everyone for showing interest in my projects!!

Heh, I totally thought it was a bag...in the clay category...that's what I get for posting pre-coffee.

Even now it kinda looks like a tote bag if I look at it right...and then a plaque...and then a bag...like one of those cool optical illusion drawings....

Yeah, I've been sniffing too much varnish.
