Fun stuff, isn't it?  I love the subject you chose - the vanilla glass sets it off nicely.

@Bendog: The decal paper runs about $2/sheet, so make sure you plan to fill that sheet up before you print! I'm still experimenting. This one and a profile of Lincoln were done at a low dimensional fuse temperature which resulted in some bubbles between the opaque and clear layer, and which slightly distorted the image. Another piece was not as highly contrasted as it should have been and it distorted badly. I'm now experimenting with fusing the decal on without capping. More later.

Thanks - I have noticed how expensive it is - unfortunately importers here usually turn the $ price directly into . (Today 2 = $2.98)

@Bendog: might be cost effective for you to make a trip over to this side of the pond and load up!
