I have just bought a HP printer with RIO in the toner to make my own decals. Attached the decals to my fired glazed pieces and fired to cone 04 and tried cone 06. Decals look amazing but the glaze pitted, bubbled and felt like sandpaper. I have been told that it is probably the glaze that does not like to be re-fired. If you can give me any help on this I would really appreciate it. TIA Nancy
Is this not the place to ask questions....if not, please direct me. Thanks
Sorry for the delay. Yeah, some glazes just don't like being re-fired and there isn't a definitive list of which ones do and which ones don't. It's just testing to determine which ones work for the situation.
I do know that Jess has never had an issue with either her 2167 Clear or her Chun Blue when re-firing for decal work.
