There are several ways to apply decals/transfers/silk screens onto ceramic ware so I decided to do my proof sheets of images and drawings and get them sent away to a company called Foto ceramic who do all the techi stuff for you.
It has saved a shed load of hassle and I received my printed sheets a day later, so I was good to go with the first firing (all be it an experiment in itself)
Here are the sheets:
|These are the original sheets with my doodles, drawings and images on them that were resized and sent to Foto Ceramic.|
|A day later the sheets arrived through the post printed onto the ceramic paper.|
|Then I had to carefully snip around each image as I was warned some of the background paper colour may show through after the firing and I didn't want that, (I am after less transfer look more fired into the piece, if that makes sense.)|
|These are all ready to pop into the kiln now ready to be fired. |
I will post the results soon when the kiln has cooled.
