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:
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!
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.
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.
Here is a look at the whole Doodle Flowers stamp set:
