Photo on ceramic

Hi all.

I have a customer that has a photo on a thick white ceramic plate. It has been manually touched up at the time of its inception.

Does anybody out there know anything of this type of photography?

Thanks.

Kate

Hi Kate:

Maybe I'm missing something here... (but I haven't had dinner yet). Is your question regarding the process of getting the image transferred onto the plate and then later, how one goes about touching it up?

I'd be interested in seeing how this comes out. Sounds facinating.

Dinner was lovely, thanks!

I'm still not getting it... I've seen all kinds of stuff (coffee cups, pillows, t-shirts, plates, whatever) onto which photo images are transferred. The photography is photography regardless of the ultimate destination of the image.

Are you saying that somehow the photo image is applied directly to the plate? Is there something special about the image on the plate?

I know the light will go on for me (eventually). Be gentle.

This is funny - but then I am warped.

Ok the photo is really old. It is on a ceramic plate, something link a ceramic tile but not shiny. It could even be marble come to think of it. Anyway it is a photo but at the time of inception it was highlighted using some form of ink/paint.

It is the best I can describe it.

I am glad dinner was good. I am off to have lunch now.

Wink I have a question on the ceramic tile...

Hi, I hit the next thread and ended up here, and after the few posts, I too became interested....What are you going to do with the picture that has been touched up and placed upon a shiny marble tile? [Not trying to be coy, just thorough.

Do you plan to replicate the image onto a different medium, or do you want to restore the present image on the present medium?

I missed dinner entirely, so I may be having my own brain short. Curious to see how this plays out. And I would love to see this image!

Take care,
NiteOwl

You people really need to eat.

Let me say it again. I am after any information somebody may have about this medium used in photography. Nothing else.

sigh.

Many thanks.

Katie,....

Ok, I had a quick snack for some brain power.... Are you planning to do the same type of work yourself with your own pictures on your own marble tiles? Whew....I hope tht is close.

I have not heard of this other than the ivory painting, and they use a special dye. I once did acrylics on a automobile hood,...I did a huge 'Ninja Turtle' saying "Cowabunga" on a car hood for a demo derby. That thing went throw, rain, mud, and repeated smashes and the paint held up beautifully.

have you checked the web? Ask Jeeves, usually does a pretty good search for info on a particular subject. Interesting. Let us know what you find out, and where you decide to go with it.

take care,
Nite Owl

I know of an old technique where the image is separated from the backing and applied directly to a plate or canvas and sometimes wood?

yippee

Phew - we seem to have got over that hurdle.

I was beginning to think that I was chasing my tail.

No I am not planning on doing anything particularily fancy with the photo as it is a customers. I told her I would try and get some info about the format of it.

We are getting closer with the info about transferring onto other items so that is good.

Thank you all.

(Should some of you not be tucked up in bed? It must be quite late there as it is mid afternoon here in Sydney. Gotta tell you we are melting with this humidity).
