magic pens

Our lovely friend Leila came for a visit. She brought a few Chartpak Blender pens, which dissolve the ink from a laser-jet printer, making it possible to transfer images! Since there is iron-oxide in the ink, they can be used on ceramics, and fire to various shades of brown. I learned about it from the brilliant American ceramist David Allyn, he held a workshop while he was here exhibiting at Sintra.
