It would seem you have to fire decals on a low heat, in the microwave kiln, so you need a bit of extra patience - (which I haven't really got :o) ) .... so I haven't done too
many of them. However, I do like them a lot, so may just have to persevere. Also for a better result - fire them on already fused glass.
The first tomato decal I fired, I fired it on High, and although I rather like the result, it does come out slightly weird!

the larger piece cracked when fired, so managed to get 2 smaller pieces out of it
the pieces of glass were placed next to each other, on their edges - when fired they
melt down and flatten out.
2 small pendants using some bits of millefiori flowers

This was a previously fired piece that I cut up, re-positioned and re-fired.

before and after
These were also chunks broken off of another piece and refired
with a small piece of dichroic glass on top

this is before firing
this is after firing with clear glass 'edges' framing the central piece.
I added those afterwards and re-fired it.
I over-fired the piece, so the pattern has mishapen, and has a couple of holes,
but I'm quite happy with this.
I could also neaten up the corners to square the piece up more - but haven't as yet :o)
(I usually use COE 90 glass)
