Office Equipment and the Studio

There is this product out there called Lazertran Silk. It is wonderful for transferring images onto polymer clay. When I was first introduced to it, it brought back memories of my brothers’ model cars with tons of decals decorating them. This particular product allows you to print any image onto the ‘silk’ using a laser copier.

At my husband’s office, there is not just your ordinary laser printer. No, it does not use toner nor ink-jet. Nope, it uses wax! I call it the ‘crayola copier’. What is so neat about it, is that when the transferred images are copied onto the polymer clay and then cured in the oven, the heat melts the wax image into the clay. It has a much softer look to it than when the conventional copier is used. Sometimes it has its downside such as when the original color changes drastically. But that issue is so rare that it hardly needs mentioning.

This piece is my second mosaic bowl that I have recently completed. It is title ‘Nana’s Quilt Stash’.

Polymer clay tiles set into wooden bowl. Design process using Lazertran Silk. I used sanded grout.

To complete the underside of the bowl, I used acrylic paint, copper leaf, and made polymer clay feet.
