Decal Rocks

Water slide decal stones
Made some stones using laser jet water slide decals I printed
with my artwork & varnished them with pva glue.
I used a 005 micron pen to draw all the black details
on the butterfly before I varnished it.

Ah hah! So glad you've mentioned these! I can pick your brains. I've been experimenting with lasertran for a while now trying to get my designs onto traditional teacups but I'm really struggling with the curvature of the cup. Mugs are fine as theyre generally straight on one plane so you can wrap images around easier. Cups are curved all the way, I might as well be trying to wrap a baseball in paper... But I see youve managed to do it fine on stones, which obviously will have a natural curve or perhaps imperfections... My question is how did you deal with these and avoid creasing and puckering? I was thinking maybe the smaller the design the better, as it gives it less surface area to crease on, or have you just chosen stones which are relatively flat or found an ingenious way to use the stuff on undulating surfaces?
