This book is aimed at those in ceramics who wish to move into print and transfers, a very exciting area which has expanded massively in the last 5-10 years. Transfers, or decals, have great potential as a means of creative expression. Printmaking allows reproduction of both photographic and 'hand drawn' imagery, pattern and text onto the surface of two and three-dimensional ceramic objects.
This book focuses on ceramics and print in the context of transfers and decals. These can be done very simply, or in more sophisticated ways - it allows you for example to create your own screen print or take a photo and then create your own transfer or decal to place the image and fix it to the ceramic surface. Print (especially in this format) is being used extensively now, and this book will cover everything you need to know.
