Graphics on Ceramics

eli's creation

Maybe you are thinking of how to put a graphic or image onto a ceramic mugs or plates. Using your PC and inkjet printer you can make your custom graphic design that is perfect for gift giving, holidays, special occasions, corporate giveaways, personalized home gifts, or a souvenir item.

To do it you will need the following materials: waterslide inkjet deal paper, transfer/film solution, inkjet printer, scissors, hairdryer, basin/bowl with water.

Procedures:

1. Design your decals using any graphic software program.

2. Print the image on the glossy side of the decal paper using your inkjet printer

Printer setting Resolution = Best

Paper = Photo Gloss

3. Spray your printed sheet evenly with transfer solution. Allow to dry completely. Use hair dryer for quick drying.

4. Cut out the decal/image as close as possible to the actual design using scissors.

5. Place image into a basin of water for 45-60 seconds and remove when the thin decal film begins to slip along backing. (Discard backing material after the decal has been removed)

6. Place your image (gently slide the decal) in desired position on a mug or plate. Use a clean damp cloth or soft tissue to wipe off excess water and remove any air bubbles that may appear

7. Air dry. Allow setting time of about 3 hours or you. (You can speed up drying time by placing your decorated object under/near a fan)

9. When the image is completely dry, oven dry it using medium temperature (optional). If you wish to protect your decorated item from surface scratches, moisture, or fading then spray your dried decorated surface with an acrylic varnish

    Gling ng public service mo. Libre lesson ang ceramic arts. Detalyado ang procedures pati time element. Nagpapakita na talagang mahirap gawin at mga magaling lang na artist makakagawa ng maayos.

    Bigay ka na lang kaya ng pricelist. Mas mabilis at makakatipid pa kami.

  3. kuya toni,

    actually, matagal ko nang gustong gawing business itong ceramics pero di pa ako makapag mass produce dahil busy sa work. alam mo nman ang buhay ng isang empleyado, nakatali sa oras. kaya i-share ko nalang baka sakaling may interesado at matutunan ito.
