  • Ideas on transferring designs to china?

    No, not how to send patterns to Peking, but how to get a design onto a china object for painting! I need to do some painting on an opaque glazed china surface, and I have ceramic paints and glass-paints that should do the job. But I'm a useless artist, and can't even write straight, so I need some kind of guide to work to.

    I know that my trick with rubbing down from an inkjet print won't work, as the surface is too smooth and glossy to take the imprint. Same with tracing and rubbing down - nothing comes over. And I can't see through this like the glass I've painted before. I'm wondering about tracing it over typist's blue transfer paper...

    Anyone know how to do this, or even have any ideas?
    Cheers,

      what about using an overhead projector

      what about using an overhead projector so you can trace the outline onto the plate?

        Thanks for the ideas, guys. Sadly, water transfer paper seems to be for making your own decals, and I don't have a projector... but they'rer interesting ideas, nevertheless!
