Image Transfer onto Bisque and Paper

Ok,  I have been asked so many times to explain the image transfer technique I use onto bisque. I will post a step by step picture tutorial next week.
I will briefely explain now how I do it  but there are now two videos showing you how in the video section on this blog.
This also works on paper but not sure if inks will work with it. I will leave this up to all you paper crafters out there, I would really appreciate any feedback on how you get on with it.
  1. You will need a laser copy or print
  2. Spray your print with Americana Gloss spray sealer, do this lightly untill you see the ink start to raise from the paper. ( As if it were embossed).
  3. Place the paper ink side down onto the bisque or paper and burnish it with you finger or a Brayer for approx 10 seconds.
  4. Remove paper and your image should have transferred!
You will need to have a mirror image copy, especially if text is to be included.



  1. Would any brand sealer/finisher work or have you found this specific one to be the best?

  2. Hi Lisa, I have tried a few and by far the best so far is the Gloss Americana Spray,

  3. Is it ok to fire this after you add the transfer?


Your comments are always read and very much appreciated.
