I have often seen some  pretty paper napkins but never actually considered using them for jewelry designs. But Patricia Roberts-Thompson did. She picked napkins with water color flowers for her easy transfer tutorial.  She made some bookmarks and round pendants.

The inks from the napkin are burnished onto the clay pieces and then the whole thing is baked.  The paper part is soaked and rubbed away.

What this instructor did next was to enhance the designs with alcohol inks and water brushed to blend. I think you do have to choose your napkin designs carefully to get good results.  An alternative to color washes is to use fine black markers to add accent borders.
