excellent info and resource!!! The Laser printer decal printer is really a nice option especially for color!
Please note that the laser printing option above is non-fired. From the Papilio site:
"Ceramic Plates: The PAS paper is to make NON fired decals only. Porcelain plates decorated with PAS-decal can make a beautiful wall hanging but cannot be used as food bearing plates. This type of decal is not permanent in the same way as over the glaze fired porcelain or china paint decals. See important information on how to place decal on plates below on this page.
Porcelain/ceramic Mugs: The PAS paper can be used to make a non-fired decal to decorate mugs. Please keep in mind that this is not a permanent decoration like fired porcelain colors. Mugs can be hand washed in warm water using nonabrasive soap. This type of decal is quite durable if not scratched with sharp objects. A mug with this type of decal is NOT dishwasher safe. It can survive the washing cycle of a dishwasher one or two times, but then the whole decal may come off. "
Posted 29 Jun 2012I have a question about the undergraduate showcase. Can I submit a piece I submitted last year? It was made in 2011 so it's not too old and it relates to the evolution of my work. What do you think?
Also, it says that you need to include a complete description of each work submitted. What exactly should that include?
You are welcome to submit the same piece you sent last year. I would encourage you to submit new work as well, if you can, so we have a wide variety to choose from.
For the description of work, we want the title, dimensions, materials used, firing temperature, and date the piece was completed.
Hope that helps.
Posted 22 Jun 2012Responses are interesting and I like the idea of the anthropomorphic mugs. I do not like underglazes (cone 04) as they tend to look like spray paint and did not use them with my elementary kids, but the previous high school ceramic people only used the underglazes. I have a reasonably stocked elementary supply of Amaco LG series glazes but can not take them to the high school due to individual budgets, etc. Also, what textbook would be suggested in aiding curriculum writing? Thanks~
