Jewelry Clay Transfers With Print 'n Press

My studio resin table looks so interesting today!
This weekend I printed these images (purchased on ETSY) onto a piece of Print 'n Press transfer paper.
Today I made a little batch of Jewelry Clay.
All I am doing is pressing my clay into a nice circular shape on the paper.  The clay will rest here all day and tomorrow morning I will be able to peel it away.  The clay is curing in place.
Since the clay is just sitting, it is a great idea to add some colour to it now.  I have brushed this beautiful bronze Pearl Ex powder across the back of the clay.
Then I did two more things.
1.  You can't see but I dry stamped a rubber stamp of faux text into the clay to give it some texture.
2.  I added screw eyes into the clay to make them immediately wearable once the clay has cured.

This post was designed, photographed and written by me.

Looks pretty but the main step is missing? The clay is sitting on the image but does it not have to be spread to cover the image? Does the image magically transfer to the clay as it's placed on it for 24 hours? Would love to see the actual process.

I place the clay on the part of the image I want to transfer. I did not want the whole circle, and yes, it magically transfers. There are more than a dozen Print n Press how tos on the site to show this.
