Collaged transfers


These glowing hollow beads from Claire Maunsell are patterned with collaged pieces of laser transfers. The elegant mix of patterns shine through dark and distressed surfaces. The combination lends her beads an aura of a rich and mysterious past.

Claire’s added a number of collaged and hollow beads on her Flickr pages. Go there for your first-of-the-week jolt of inspiration.

We happened to be working on laser transfers in our weekend class in Minnesota. See how Maureen Carlson turned the transfer of her sprite into a sculpture and see some of our class pictures on Instagram.

    Wow these have turned out so incredibly beautiful – absolutely love them. Cynthia I love some of the laser transfer pieces as well – especially Maureen’s sprite – simply gorgeous. It seems a few of us are working on laser transfers at the moment. I’ve been working with some beautiful aboriginal women here in Western Australia and we’ve been transferring their paintings to beads – gotta love polymer clay and what can be achieved that’s for sure. Thanks so much for sharing information today.

      These are awesome. I love how, even when claire uses a new technique, it is still recognizably hers!
