Using the same decal in a variety of ways and with a variety of techniques
Monotone is using a decal that has a predominant color theme. By using a lot of that decal, you theme the ware to that color. Monotone is not necessarily using a one color decal.
1) Use on clear glaze
2) Use on a lightly colored glaze that is the same or a complimentary color
Candles are an example of "Cold Mounting".
Cold Mounting is whenever you decorate with a Fired Decal but do not intend to fire it.
You can Cold Mount on any smooth surface. Further sealing is helpful but not necessary.
Surfaces that can be Cold Mounted:
• Plastic lamp shades
• Plastic bags
• Window glass
• High gloss wall paint
• Vinyl contact paper
• Shower doors
• Metal surfaces
You can Decoupage (seal in with
a clear drying top coat) any of the above surfaces,
• Any hard surface
Borders, Wraps, & Strips can be adapted from many directions:
1) Decals made for that purpose
2) Cut out from a larger decal
3) Draped over edge of piece, and excess trimmed off (This is a goody!)
4) Small decals placed in a row (The most common method)
• tight border
• loose border
• staggered sizes (e.g., large-small-small-large)
• portion sliced off to bring decals even closer together
• tiny decals in a tight border
