Firing Bigger Decals

Christine Williams

I had 2 relatively large decals that I wanted to fire onto pre-enamelled steel so I used Julie Rattray’s research article (Spring 2019 in the journal) as the starting point for working out how to fire them. Because they were bigger than the ones she tested I made some amendments to her method. I did not do a series of trials, but instead made some changes that I thought would reduce the chance of the decals burning out. Some of the ideas listed below might not be necessary, but none were too onerous and I was pleased with how the decals turned out.
