A friend just gave me a batch of what looks like black decals. They
were in her deceased aunt’s studio. Her aunt was a jeweler and an
enamelist, so possibly they had something to do with her work. On the
outside of the package it says zipatone transfers. The sheets inside
the package are marked letraset instant lettering. I did some
googling on the Internet, but did not come up with any I
took one of the black decals, and was able to burnish the design onto
a piece of paper.
My friend says her aunt did a lot of etching and she thought perhaps
she used them as a resist in the acid. She also thought that her aunt
used them in her enameling, but did not know in what way. Can anyone
shed any light on this?
Which behoves me to mark the use of my things with full information
so that my grandaughter, who will inherit the whole kit and kaboodle
will know what everything is used for.
