A transfer image uses nothing but ordinary water for perfect adhesion. Our Beading Technique shows you how to use transfers with bezel pendants.
Bezel Pendant or Picture Frame Pendant
Bowl of water
Beading Scissors 1-1/4 in. Blade
1 1/4 inch Large Heart Punch
Because transfer images are transparent try using acrylic paint as a background color. Make sure the paint is completely dry before adding the transfer image.
Cut out your desired image from the transfer image sheet using scissors or a coordinating paper punch.
Submerge the transfer image into a bowl of room temperature water. Let soak for a minimum of one minute.
After submerging the transfer image in water the backing will start to seperate from the "film-like" image.
Using your thumb and forefinger slide the transfer image off of the backing slightly.
Set the edge of the transfer image face up in the pendant.
Continue sliding the backing off laying the transfer completely in the pendant.
Use a Q-tip to press the transfer image into the pendant working from the center out. By using the Q-tip you are also getting any trapped water or air out from under the transfer image.
Make sure the transfer image is dry before you add ICE Resin or Diamond Glaze to your pendant. Do not use Amazing Glaze with the transfer images, the heat will melt the film-like transfer image.
