Photo Transfer is a process in which you mix potassium dichromate, gum arabic and ceramic oxide and spray onto enamel surface. The image in which to be transferred is printed on a transparency film, and exposed to light. As the light passes through, the mixture adheres onto the surface of the enamel. the Enamel is then developed, and fired in a kiln to become permanent. The lines of the paper are added to the image AFTER the process is complete, making this a piece that is fired around 15-20 times.
