Did you know that Silhouette’s Temporary Tattoo Paper isn’t just for skin? You can also use the paper to temporarily decorate any ceramic piece you have in your home! From vases to mugs to planters, you can transform the look with a well-placed tattoo until it’s time to wash it!
To tattoo your ceramics, the process is essentially the same as if you were tattooing skin! Load your desired designs into the Silhouette software and adjust them to fit the size of your vase, mug, planter, or other ceramic piece. Make sure you flip the image by going to “object” tab and selecting ‘mirror’ so it will be facing the right way when you tattoo it!
Then, just follow the instructions that come with your temporary tattoo paper – print out your designs with your regular printer making sure you print with the registration marks (laser or inkjet both work!) and then put the adhesive sheet over the front of your design, smoothing it out with your scraper tool.
Run the printed tattoo paper with the adhesive sheeting through the Silhouette to cut out your designs. Then just peel back the sheeting, press the tattoo on your ceramic piece, and press a wet cloth over it for about 30 seconds or so!
Then just peel back the paper to reveal your beautiful design! Tattooing your ceramics is a great idea if you have a special occasion coming up like a holiday or party, want to pretty up your vase of flowers, or if you want to leave a special message for someone! That way you can change the look of what you already own without permanently altering anything!
