Tile Trials - the first batch (fired)
Here are the first batch of transfer delftware tiles after firing. The images have become completely fused to the surface glaze of the tiles. Scrubbing, scratching, soap and water, fire and ash will not move them (pretty much). All good news.
But for me, the colours are way too dark, alas. I was warned that ceramic transfer decals could appear duller than the original artwork and they weren't wrong. In full sunlight they're not bad, but I really want something closer to the bright cobalt blue one sees on original dutch Delft tiles, if possible.
