Friends, thank you so much for your support ~ you always make me smile.
The decal experiment worked out great, very nice product called Fired-On Images MS. I got mine from New Mexico Clay (their website is having a problem this morning so I can't post a link, I'll fix that later) More info at www.fired-on.com Nice iron oxide coloring, picks up every detail. Seems to be permanent, it would not scratch off with my fingernail. Foodsafe, easy to use, etc. Says it works on glass too but would have to be fired, not sure how that would work out?
The decals have limited use for a sculptor but they would be great for adding your logo to the bottom of your pieces. A bowl, a dinner plate, and a salad plate from the dollar store along with about 25 cents worth of decal paper makes a cool custom place setting for $3.25 I suppose you could add a graphic to some fancy Pottery Barn plates or even your grandmother's Noritake china, but you might want to test fire one first
(the part missing from the left of the first "H" was not a product flaw, I cut that off when cutting out the decal)
