Moseley’s transfer treats

Lynda Moseley (DesignDiva1) gives a delicate, Victorian feel to her polymer clay beads by transferring her vintage bird illustrations to a taupe base that has been mixed with embossing powders. The results are reminiscent of speckled bird eggs.

Lynda has a way with transfers and you’ll see the same graceful, careful touch reflected in many of her beads and pendants. Here’s her blog plus Flickr and Etsy.

        I am so glad to see Lynda’s work featured on here, thank you Cynthia! She has an elegant style all her own that I would recognize anywhere! And is such a sweet Southern Gal to boot! 🙂

            Wow! I am an avid follower of Polymer Clay Daily and am so honored to be featured. Thank you so much, Cynthia!

            These are my first attempts at “bird beads”, and the response has been overwhelming. I am in the studio now putting some new ideas to clay for this series (different colored backgrounds and shapes).

            Thank you again!

              Those are beautiful! And as someone who has had a really hard time with transfers on a curved surface, I particularly admire her ability to include the transfers into the beveled edges of her beads.

                          I am so boggled by all this beautiful stuff. I am from South African and am keen to learn the workings of Polymer clay. I live in a small city called Port Elizabeth on the South East coast of Africa. I love the way that you are using tanfers on the clay…… what are transfers, where do you get them and how are they used ? where can I learn more about this ?
