Heirloom photo transfer…

This pendant is the first I have made using a photo transfer.  The entire pendant is polymer clay…after printing the picture with an inkjet printer, I applied a thin even layer of Sculpey Translucent Liquid Scupley to the photo.  I then cured the clay with a heat gun. After it was cured, I soaked the picture in warm soapy water for one minute…then I peeled the paper off the back of the clay image.  The next step is to place the image onto some white clay that is rolled out thin and slightly larger than the transfer. After that is baked, I made a frame for the pendant from black Premo clay.  After the pendant was complete, I covered the transfer with a thin layer of Sepia Accents, a dimensional gloss medium made by Ranger.

The entire instructions can be found at  http://www.sculpey.com/projects/heirloom-photo-transfer-pendants   this was a fun project and now I have to make another one for a friend.  Does anyone know who this lovely lady is…if so, let me know!  She is quite stunning!
