|Fusible decals work much like decals used
on windows or model cars. They come sheets and can be cut up as desired
for inclusion in your work. Use decals to add a design and more depth and
interest to your
Fill a shallow pan with warm water. Cut out the piece of decal you wish to
use from the sheet. Peel off the thin waxy layer of paper that protects
the decal (not the white paper). Float the decal in the water for several
minutes (not so long that it floats off the paper though). This will
loosen the white paper. Pick up the decal and slide it off the white
paper. Maintaining the same orientation (donít flip it up side down)
slide the decal onto the glass. Use a paper towel to blot off any excess
water. Do not cap the decal with glass.. the decal is the TOP. Decals must
be dry before firing.
TIPS: Make sure the glass is clean
to insure full adhesion. All pieces of the decal must lie flat on the
glass; they will not flatten out during firing.
Preheat slowly to 1000 degrees to prevent pinholes or blisters before
ramping up to final temperature. Upon reaching final temp soak the pieces
for 10 minutes.
Remember, it is always better to under fire than over fire! Firing is like
salt... you can always add more but once it's in there you can't get it
out of the soup!!!
