Huge Thank you to Fredrick Paget for the
info on using Itoya O'Glue to adhere the clear
backing overglaze decals from China.

For those interested, here are my test results:
O'glue is a musilage type glue so I tried some from the craft
store as well (the amber colored stuff in the 1950's looking bottle)
and they both worked the same.
It worked equally as well if I put the glue on the back of the decal=20
or on the glazed area of the pot. (then squeegeed)
I fired up slowly, well ventillated, to cone 020.

The only one that didn't work was the decal on a pale bluish tint film.

And Thank you Clayart,
What would we do without you,
