After failing to find the right kind of photo paper that will transfer onto clay, I tried t-shirt transfers with mixed results.
I found the transfer paper bubbled slightly when I first transfered the image. I then glazed the image with a layer of kato liquid clay.
Sometimes this helped cover the bubbles and sometimes this emphasised them, as you can see in the japanese scenic image.
My next attempt was a thicker layer of kato, which as you can see (Japanese lady image) has helped, but its still a bit iffy.
I used a really thick layer of Kato liquid and this seems to have done the trick (photos of dogs). Looks pretty good to me and wasn't a great photo in the first place! I have turned these transfers into things to hang on the tree at Christmas - stocking stuffers!!
Sorry, this is a bit all over the place, the formatting on the blog does not seem to be working for me tonight!
