Jewelry Clay Transfers With Print n' Press (Series Two)

 This is my second project featuring techniques to make pendants with Jewelry Clay and Print n' Press transfer paper.  The other posts are linked here.
I am certain you will want to try a clay transfer after this series!
As you can see, once again I have some beautiful images sitting on my table.  I printed this artwork onto Print n' Press transfer paper.  I also made two small balls of Jewelry Clay.
 I pressed my clay into the paper.  If you see any cracks along the sides you can correct them now by smoothing the sides.
 While the clay is still moist I also brushed some Pearl-Ex powder across the surface.
 Then I dry stamped (no ink) some rubber stamps into the surface of the clay.
 I added some screw eyes into the clay.  These will cure in place and make my pendants instant dangles and easy to attach to jewelry components.
My last thought was to press a few Preciosa crystals into the clay too.  Now I just need to leave these along and allow the clay to cure overnight.
Results tomorrow!

  3. If I wanted to make these into magnets, could I just press the magnet into the clay while it's curing? Or would I need to glue it on afterward? Thanks in advance for your response.

    1. Brilliant idea!! I have not done it but I am sure it would work! Everything I have embedded has remained securely in place!
