How to use Magic Transfer Paper to create images on your raw polymer clay tutorial

Create Along today while Kira shows you how to create quick, simple & easy image transfers. Magic Transfer Paper eliminates the "long rub" that you have to do when you use regular paper to try to do an image transfer. Stop spending all that time rubbing off the paper! With MTP, it takes no time and no effort (no scrubbing!) to get the paper off and leave the beautiful ink design.

You can see more tutorials and get more info about the paper at our special page for it: http://magictransferpaper.com

You can find all the Color Me pre-printed MTP here

New Liquid Sculpey and Pentagon Cutters

You have probably heard about the new Liquid Sculpey by now but if not it now comes in clear, black and white. I have only scratched the surface having just received mine but I see LOTS of potential! The one thing I noticed about the new LS is that it was not as thick as the silver or gold so it has more of a runny consistency. Obviously it will work better for certain applications than for others so it will involve some experimenting and pushing it to its limits. I wanted to use black as a type of grout and was happy with the results for the most part however I did notice when I accidentally got some of the black LS on to my piece and tried to wipe it off it smeared and stained a little. I was able to scrape some of it off but not all of it without distorting the silkscreen design. So if I was going to do this application again I would probably execute the piece differently next time. I would probably spread the LC across my base coat of clay and then place the tiles rather than trying to grout it in the traditional way. Just a tip.

Anyway today I show what I did with the Liquid Sculpey and our Create Along Pentagon graduated size cutters. I was given a great tip from Iris Weiss of Polyform and that was to make sure and bake the clear Liquid Sculpey at 300 degrees F. It will not ruin the other clay these directions come directly from the makers of the clay. However to be cautious if you are using a light or white color clay I would tent it so it doesn't discolor. Thats just my thoughts better safe than sorry.

Shooting Polymer Clay Arrows to your Heart in Graduated Sizes

I have always loved the simple shape of an arrow maybe because it has so many design possibilities or in its simplicity maybe it's because it's quite elegant. Whatever the reason is I am having a blast trying all kinds of designs with our NEW graduated arrow cutters. The possibilities are endless. I have tried stacking them, turning them upside down, foil stenciling on them, silkscreening and so much more. Can't wait to see what fun designs you come up with!
