Mike, very cool. I've looked at those decal sheets before, thanks for testing them out for me. Looks perfect, and I can't wait to see the mosaic table come together... literally. Thanks for posting.

WOOHOO! Another successful experiment from Mike. Love those decals and the finished product looks wonderful.

Looking forward to the mosaic table. You have done some in the past and it turned out great. This one should be a lot of fun.

Your creativity never ceases to amaze me! I love your headhunter dinnerware. Way cool. Now I need to think of an application for this. I'd love it on glasses but I guess those melt in the kiln since you can make slumped glass in the kiln..... I guess it depends how low of a temp you can fire the decals at.

I'm sure someone who knows WAY more about kilns/glass than I would know.

Very cool experiment!

Wow MDM! You really are a Jack of all Trades. Nice work!

Is that a lightbulb on your Headhunter logo? Looks light a bulb with a face

I guess it must be a severed head? It looks cool either way.

Ceramics and decals and tiles . . . We may have to get you a beDazzler, just to see what happens.

Hale, Dale, Jon, & Wendy - Thank you so much for your kind words
TikiAno - Those decals worked real well, I fired 32 of them and they all turned out perfect. But I know you are using hi-fire, I'll have to look at the literature for maximum cone temp.
Lori - let me check the literature for you to see what the lower firing temp is. I figure for glass you would just start at the lowest temp and see what your results are. I would also put the glass in an unglazed ceramic bowl, then if it DOES melt, the bowl will contain it.
Greg & Heath - I'm afraid a BeDazzler might get me banned from TC like the gal with the glitter painted Tikis
LVG - Yes, that is a lightbulb in my logo to represent all the brilliant ideas I have. NOT REALLY!!! In my sign, it is more clearly identifiable as a skull but on the plates it does look a lot like a lightbulb.


Here's some Headhunter Harbor updates;

Finished the dinnerware


Finished John Frum


Still working on the mosaic table

The headhunter is all glazed and glued to the tabletop. Next is the tedious job of lining up all the glass tiles, cutting the partial tiles to size, and gluing them down. It's hard to tell from the photo, but the glass tiles are muted blues and greens with copper specks and streaks.

Your plates are SO beautiful, Mike. I haven't seen Tiki plates before, but it seems like they should be all over the place after seeing yours.
