Learn How to Make a Laser Transfer Pin with Video Craft Instruction


Do you want to learn polymer clay caning techniques? Well, it is no longer necessary to find a local craft instructor or go out and buy a book on clay jewelry-making. Video craft instruction makes it easy to learn the basics of making polymer clay beads and other jewelry online.

For craft artists, polymer clay was one of the best inventions. It is relatively inexpensive, easy to manipulate, and hardens in the oven. The latest trends using polymer clay for craft-quality jewelry involve caning or rolling the clay to achieve intricately patterned beads.

Another type of polymer clay jewelry utilizes a flat shape with an image transferred onto it. These shapes are often stamped with permanent inks and then covered with a transparent clay to protect the image. In her video craft instruction segment, craft artist Donna Kato shows how simple it is to make“laser transfer pins” using polymer clay and a laser printed image.

In the preview for this video, Donna uses a pasta machine to flatten a sheet of black and white clay, which are fused together and cut into shapes. After transferring a color image onto the clay, she stamps it with white and black inks and covers it with a special clear polymer that can be sanded and buffed later on.

This particular class is one of many video craft instruction workshops offered by CraftEdu to help crafters refine their skills. Other popular classes include bead art, painting, digital art, fabric arts and calligraphy.

  2. Despite a relatively compact size that makes it ideal for use in the home or at a printer station within a small workgroup, the HP 2500 is a powerful machine. The 300MHz processor offers fast print speeds and a monthly duty cycle of 30,000 pages. The 64MB of memory mean that you can print complex jobs with ease. The memory is also fully upgradeable, allowing you to reach a total of 256MB in all.
