Vintage birds - earrings



The earrings are made out of polymer clay (Fimo). I use some bird images which I found at Karens graphics fairy. The colour saturation and contrast was set to high (just use the word image tools, not moe necessary). 


For the image transfer just try out fimo classic and not fimo soft, I tried that too often: Don't work. It seems to work at first but then the colours are getting messy and sticky and will smear over the clay. Not happening with fimo classic. I never tried over polymer clay brands for image transfer so if you have experience with them and image transfer, please let me know! I am curious :)


I really like how the colours pop out! Like tiny vintage tiles :)


...and some bird cages...


...as last step: 5 to 6 layers (at least!) of shiny gloss...

  1. They are pretty. How do you transfer the image onto the Fimo?
