Belle Armoire Jewelry Summer 2008 - Juice and Baseball

Image Transfer Article - Clarity When 'Seeing Double' ...

Still waiting for the courtesy copy of the Belle Armoire Jewelry Magazine Summer 2008 to arrive, went to the bookstore and got a copy. It's a great article, just spotted one contradictory sentence to clarify, otherwise it may be confusing to someone trying the transfer process.

The article has one sentence that says to use either inkjet or laser copy images, followed by a sentence that says not to use inkjet images. The second sentence is correct, inkjet printed images won't work with the process in the article for transferring images to polymer clay.

Due to space limitations in the publishing format, the backs of the pieces are not shown, but if you'd like to see the fronts and backs of the image transfer examples they are in this Picassa Photo Gallery, just follow the link. For the magazine format the photographs have to be cropped and configured for their layout. The photos and captions on Picassa are full-size. The original jewelry just returned from the photography for the article, will be putting it on the expeditionD.etsy.com site soon.

If you have any questions about the article or the description, post questions here, will try to clarify. Sorry about the mix-up on the printer / copier options, hope this clears things up for anyone who might have been confused. To send email, click on the picture of the Ringleader of LLYYNN, or reply on this blog.

Now that the fused fine silver links are available, want to combine these pieces with some silver links to create a summertime theme image. Baseball, ginger ale and fruit juice. Ahh, refreshing.

You still haven't received it? good heavens, where on earth is it? lynn, i think the article is very, very good with really lovely photography. perhaps the magazine can print a small clarification section in the future, such as they do with pattern clarifications in knitting magazines. might be worth bringing up to christine.

Thanks for the feedback, I'm way too close to the material to be objective about it. I just hope it's clear enough, and maybe the photos on the slideshow will also help.
