Combining Commerical and Handmade Decals on the Beads

I am putting some commercial decals on the backside of some of the beads I have applied the handdrawn character daisies. I thought it might be fun to add a spot of bright color to each bead. This is not nearly enough for a load. I will set these aside and add to it. When I have enough for a full load, I will fire these. The commercial decals fire several hundred degrees less than the handmade decals. However, like the iron oxide laser decals, they do slip underneath the glaze and are permanently affixed.


  1. These are great Natalie. So cool that you are continuing the dialogue about ceramic decals.

  2. Thanks! I am so glad I'm finally figuring out how to fire these in my kiln. I've had many disasters getting to the right temp.
