I have been making some pendants using the decal paper that your print on a laser printer and then fire onto your glass.

What great subjects for your decals!  I've got some decal pieces in the kiln right now - I'm using them to make wine glass charms.

The one on the bottom to right was for a Chinese colleague of my husband's for her sister's 80th birthday - it says "long life".

Means that you and your art have to be selected by judges to be in the art show or craft fair. They usually have guidelines and standards which they go by. Also this way there is not one area or another that is over saturated with tons of booths. Like too many jewelry people, wood people, etc. Smiley

Those are great!  Was the decal paper hard to use?  Can I ask what model printer you used?

They are "waterslide" decals that I print on my HP Laserjet P1600. The documentation with the paper says that any HP Laser printer that is only capable of printing black and white (it must not be capable of printing in colour) will work. You can use almost any image as long as it is a high contrast one. For instance, I made these for our neighbours' 50th Wedding Anniversary recently. This is a photograph from their wedding! I put it onto a couple of coasters, a pendant and a pair of cufflinks.
