ok im not sure if this is the right place to put this,but im after a little advice,after ive done a really good tattoo ill take a picture of it photoshop the background out then print it onto decal paper and put it on a mug,now a few of my customers have asked for mugs which ive done for them,the problem is when they wash them it starts to come off,ive tried a couple of gloss sprays but nothing seems to work,is there any way i can get around this:playball:

you can get image transfer solution for ceramics and glass, not sure how waterproof it is tho, you can buy a whole system to 'print' onto ceramic but its quite pricey

The one I have seen is around 600, you can send pics off to companies and they print them for you, dishwasher proof etc, take the money from the customer and get them sent on to them.

http://www.craftycomputerpaper.co.uk/ have a look on here. I don't think you can get completly wash safe but have a look on this website, I seem to remember some that had to be cured in an oven at a reasonably low temperature, no kiln involved.
