Afterimage – prints onto glass

The special transparent transfer paper allows you to fuse the output from a Laser Printer* directly onto glass.
The printed image is made of very fine particles of Iron Oxide which are printed onto a transparent film. This film is then transferred and fused into the surface of the glass when the film substrate is burned away in your kiln. A ’black & white’ printed image, when fired and fused, produces a monotone image which is similar to the old sepia prints. The process is capable of producing quite fine detail which is strong enough to withstand subsequent firings and layering without significant deterioration. /From: www.anlaglas.com/
