Digital Stamping on Clay! A Freebie and a Sale!

I’m feeling like an evil genius right now because I figured out how to use my digital stamps on polymer clay, here is an amulet I made with the new Doodle Flowers Digital Stamp Set at Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff:

Digital Stamp: Lindsay's Stamp Stuff, Inks: Adirondack, Markers: Bic-Markits, Idea: Lynn Kruke

Digital Stamp: Lindsay's stamp Stuff, Clay: Sculpey, Ink: Ranger, Markers: Bic-Markits, Other: Cord and beads, Idea: Lynn Kruke

I colored the image with Biuc Markits and painted the background with alcohol ink. The clay was white to begin with.

And the best part is that it is super easy! Here’s how: Print the digital stamp you want to use from your inkjet printer, fill the page up and get as many as you can on the sheet. Photocopy the sheet (if you have a laser printer you don’t need to do a photocopy.) Cut the images apart. Make your clay charms (I rolled out an 1/8″ thick slab of clay and wrapped it around a matchbox for my amulet) then press the photocopied images into the clay. Be sure to press them on well so contact is made, then cook the clay per manufacturers directions. I used plain old Sculpey because I have loads on hand but I recommend using Premo (also by Sculpey/Polyform as it is much more durable). After the clay is baked peel off the paper, I did it while it was still hot, and see your design!

Here are the stamps transferred on the clay after baking.

There are other ways to transfer photocopied images as well. I have a clear Chartpack blending marker that works well but I have it on good authority that vodka will work too! experiment ;) You can use a wood burning tool (or creative hot marks) with a flat transfer tip or a hot iron. The heat works because in a photocopier or laser printer the toner (ink) is burned on to the paper.

look how easy it is to transfer images with a marker! Imagine the possibilities!

Here I transfered some images to tile and colored them with my bic markits. The markers worked great and didn’t lift my design. If the transfer is too light in spots you can fill in with a fine tip permanebt marker. The small charms are made from polymer clay.

    • yep, I used the markits to color the flower then dabbed alcohol ink around the box. i used a paint brush dipped in goo gone to blend the ink close to the flower.

  5. Awesome Lindsay – Genius indeed – but I’d say Creative Genius, not Evil one! :) Now I need to get a clear chartpack marker too. I am not much of a jewelery maker, but I can see coaster possibilities using the small tiles.

  15. I used to do polyclay a few years ago and I do remember something about vodka transfers. Never tried it (don’t have any vodka and I didn’t want to buy a big bottle for tiny projects) but who knows, I might want to try with digi stamps. Thanks.
