I want to personalize some egg cups for Christmas stocking fillers but am not really artistic so I thought some sort of transfer approach would be the best way forward.
If anyone has an easier suggestion for doing this (cheaply) that would also be welcome.
Also does anyone know if this is the sort of thing you can buy in ordinary craft shops rather than specialist suppliers? i really only want one sheet and would rather not have to pay post and packaging
I don't know what decal paper is but have you considered decoupage? You can print any image you like off your computer onto normal paper or get images out of magazines (the thinner the paper the better). Pva them onto the object of choice and varnish over. I use Ronseal quick drying varnish http://www.ronseal.co.uk/products/product.jsp?id=40 , several coats are needed to make the edges of the paper less visible and so that it appears painted on. Sand inbetween every 5 coats or so. It can be quite a long process but if you have lots of items on the go at once it's not so innconveinient having to wait for coats to dry!
