Hi Lucia. I have been making and using decals made on my laser printer. Here is what I have learned so far. First, only a few printers can make the images that can be fired. I use a Hewlett Packard laser printer. Ink jet printers don't work. I too read something about an acrylic coating and couldn't figure it out so I ignored it. I order my water slide decal paper from Beldecal and have been very satisfied. Make sure they are for laser printer and I find the letter size page works best. After printing and then soaking in warm water for about 1 minute, the decals slide onto the fired, glazed pots easily. I then fire to cone 04. I have discovered that decals also work on Terra Sig.
There are some articles on the internet that I have found very helpful. A web site you might check is http://www.rothshank...ecal_Resources. I will be happy to provide any other information and will watch this site for additional questions.
Thank you so much, Claire,
I tried on leather hard cups but I will try again over fired pieces. I hope it will be easier.
I printed the decal paper with a HP laserjet .
So ,after printing you do not coat the paper with the acrilic varnish? And still can get the image transfered easily?
I may need some practice. Decals , I only used as a child on school projects. They were a little hard, not so gelly as this. LetÂ´s see.
I will write again as soon as I get any result.
