    After a bit of advice: dishwasher safe

    Hi @Bill Kielb Thanks for taking the time to reply. I admit this was the conclusion I had come to after doing some research. But I was secretly hoping maybe I had missed something :-) I was hoping there would be a way to protect the designs I am making (or at least make them a bit more sturdy) but perhaps I am hoping for too much!! I'm not 100% sure at this point in time how the designs will hold up to use, let alone dishwasher use - so I guess I will have to wait and see how they hold up. But agree that informing people they are not dishwasher safe is probably the best option for now. And yes, I've been careful to only decorate areas that won't come into contact with food or people (at the moment I have decorated the outside of some ceramic storage jars). Thanks again!
  3. Hello! I'm new here (and new to doing anything with ceramics!) and after a bit of advice. I've started experimenting with applying designs to already glazed ceramics. I've done things with ceramics pens (Pebeo paint) and also with water-slide decal transfers. So far I am only applying my designs to the outside, so nothing is in areas that come into contact with food. I'd love to make the designs dishwasher safe, but I'm not sure of the best options. I've got some Mod Podge dishwasher safe, but my initial experiment with this leaves streaks over the design. I'm wondering if there are other ways people could advise to seal the designs so that they are dishwasher safe (in particular the decal transfers, as the ceramic pens seem to be fairly resilient already). I would love to be able to get a consistent finish over the designs. If there isn't I will continue experimenting with mod podge! Thank you so much! :-)
