I remember when I was in school and the teacher gave us just newspaper. We cut words from it and decorated our mug or plate. I don't remember how we glued or adhered to the plate or mug so it was permanent. Do you know a way how to make piece of paper fixed on plate, so it is

  • permanent
  • non-toxic
  • food-safe

It does not have to be specifically newspaper. Any common household paper should work for this.

  • I'm not sure what you mean by "style". – Catija Apr 23 '17 at 17:22
  • I want to buy white mug and place words on it, without any fancy markers etc. – user439345 Apr 23 '17 at 17:23
  • So you want to be able to cut out newspaper clippings and place them on a plate / mug etc and still be able to safely use that item for food and beverage without the paper being affected? – Matt Apr 23 '17 at 17:49
  • Yes that's right. Primary i want there to place name made of word clippings, but secondary that doesn't need to be papper, just something that is wide available to buy – user439345 Apr 23 '17 at 17:52
  • If it means something i want to "style" particulary mug outside walls – user439345 Apr 23 '17 at 17:55

You're not going to be able to adhere paper to any piece that will be kiln fired.

Alternate options include adding those paper clippings to fired pieces and then sealing them with some kind of varnish coating, or creating stencils or screens for screen printing your text/designs. There are places that will create custom screens if this is your desire. As for stencils, for about $300 you can buy a stencil cutter, provided you can import the images you want. You may also be able to find this service online, I've never looked so I can't say.

You may want to consider photo lithography image transfer onto clay. If you want it to be a bit easier than that, then ceramic decal paper is another option.
