    Default alternative to sublimation? to print my painting designs onto pottery style mugs.

    I am a pet portrait artist that paints onto mugs using pebeo ceramic paint.
    To offer a lower price point I have started to print my designs using sublimation onto standard boring mugs but what i really want to do is work with a potter and put my designs onto more 'raw', 'organic', contemporary, pottery style mugs. I also want these to be durable.

    Can anyone advise what my options are? I am under the impression that perhaps decals and firing in a kiln is my best option but i havent really explored waterslide technique either.

    If anyone can give me advise on this i would be hugely grateful and also if any potters are interested in partnering up and letting me decorate their plates, mugs, bowls etc get in touch!

    Many Thanks,

    Welcome to the forum Annie.
    Very sorry that I can't help with your query - I am neither an artist nor a potter and have no knowledge of the subject.
    However, we have some very clever and knowledgeable people here and someone may be able to help you.

    I hope you find the answer to your questions.
