Carbon Copy: New Transfer Paper Makes it Easy to Transfer Underglaze Images
From screenprinting to decals, there are many ways to transfer imagery onto pottery. There’s a nifty new commercial product out now, which acts kind of like a rice paper decal, only you can customize the image. Graffito Paper, as it’s called, is kind of like the clay world’s equivalent to carbon paper. Basically, you lay the Graffito Paper onto your piece and trace any design you want over it. Et Voila! It is on your pot.
Our own Jessica Knapp recently tested out this cool new tool in our “Ceramic Test Kitchen.” In the January/February 2012 issue of Pottery Making Illustrated, she shares her results. I thought I’d give you a sneak peek today!
