Beyond the Bowl: Making & Using Image Transfers
For dates and more information contact the instructor at: Info@ScarabGallery.com.
The range of possibilities with image transfers is amazing. In this class we will learn several techniques for making and using image transfers and ways to enhance the transfered images on your clay pieces.
Water slide transfers are those we purchase from on-line vendors. Toner transfers enable you to inexpensively transfer copies of your photos or drawn images to your ceramics pieces. These are great ways to add interesting images to your work, but it doesn't stop with just applying the image to your clay. You will learn how to enhance the image to customize it for your piece.
We will also demonstrate making and using image transfers using Heirloom Ceramics Press Fired-On Images Multi-Surface Fired on Image Transfer Paper.
Monoprint underglaze transfers are a single use technique, hence the prefix "mono" in the term.
