How does it Work?
Ceramic transfer papers are easy to apply on both flat and curved surfaces and create instant decorating effects with little effort. It’s as simple as applying a child’s tattoo. All you need to do is dampen the back of the transfer paper and press print side down on the surface you are working on. Leave for a few minutes before peeling off the paper to reveal the pattern. Once dry any additional embellishing can be done. If applying a clear glaze, take care by gently dabbing the first coat of glaze over the transfer pattern. Subsequent coats can be brushed on.

All our transfers are Japanese made, accounting for their high strength and excellent adhering properties onto raw clay, leather hard, greenware and bisque. They can be applied over painted or unpainted surfaces and finished with clear or transparent glazes and kiln fired to a broad range of temperatures from Cone 05-10. However, we recommend testing with your own glazes and kiln conditions. Please note firing will cause a slight colour change to the transfer pattern, so if matching colours, it is advisable to do a small test piece first.
