 Jessica Fong kindly donated some of her fired work to the test pile. We are in the middle of pushing through work, testing decals on the UOP studio's  cone 10 glazes.

Some people use test tiles, we habitually use yunommi. You get real world results... and more often than not, get real world failures.

I'm using the opportunity to see a few ideas and projects escape the sketchbooks, some are up for debate whether they are going to be seen even if they are successful.

I'm sure you've been asked this a million times, but how are you getting black decals rather than sepia laser-toner ones?

I've got your answer, but I have to admit something first.
These images are still unfired...
you can almost get black by doubling up layers of decals. Not easy... but it works to a degree.

sweet, I'll have to try that. I mostly block print directly on the clay, which makes black easy, but sometimes for custom orders a decal is so much cheaper, but impossible to get black! I'll have to try this, thanks!
