For the first time, home hobbyists, professional studios, schools and artists can easily, safely and inexpensively fire high quality photographs, graphics and text onto their fused glass projects. All you need is:
The special transfer paper
A HP or Canon Black and White only Laser Printer (see below)
Access to a kiln.
Available with or without the booklet.
This pack of 10 x 216 x 279mm (US standard paper size) sheets comes with easy to follow step by step instructions and the booklet contains more detailed instructions along with project ideas including how to add colour to sepia images.
The additional booklet is filled with beautiful full colour photographs.
N.B. You do not need the booklet to use the paper as instructions are included with the paper as standard.
Also included is a ramp and hold firing chart for firing glass in a ceramic kiln. Use a black and white printer to print images or text onto the photo fusing paper and then fuse the image directly onto your glass work resulting in a vintage sepia effect. It is possible to add colour to your images by adding enamels or glass powders either on top of or under the image.
See the pdfs for more information.
These decals are not suitable for firing onto glass with a coating e.g. iridised glass.
Printers that work for fusing images on glass:
Many HP or Canon (no other brands) black-only laser printer, copier or fax machines work as long as it has no capability for printing in colour. If printing photographs you may want to get a machine that can print 1200 dpi, however 600dpi is a good quality print. You do not need an expensive machine, but be sure it has a manual feed tray. Customers have recommended the HP Laser Jet Pro M15A with original toner. We use the HP Laserjet P2035 with the Original CE505A Black Laserjet Laser Toner Cartridge:
Update at at 2019: A few of HP’s NEW Black Laser printers have changed their toner formulation. Before you buy a new HP printer for this process, please check the cartridge number on HP’s MSDS site to be sure your toner contains either Iron Oxide or Ferrite. http://h22235.www2.hp.com/hpinfo/globalcitizenship/environment/productdata/ljmsdsuseng.html
There is also a link on the FAQ page at www.fired-on.com ALL Canon Black-Only laser printers still work for this process.
