Inkjet printers have expanded how artists of all visual mediums manipulate their imagery. Nowadays, anything that can be photographed or scanned can be transferred to virtually any two or three- dimensional surface. One affordable medium by which this can be done is waterslide decal paper.  Waterslide decal paper has been around since the middle of the last century. Screen printed decals have  been used for many years to decorate toys and models, and more recently ceramic artists have used the  process to transfer images during the firing process. Looking back to its original application, Kona photographic artist John Ferdico has developed a technique that allows artists to transfer high-quality  photographic images to almost any surface.  In this workshop, John will share his technique with artists who are interested in transferring photographic images using little more than an inkjet printer and some basic art supplies.  For more information call: (808) 322-3362 or visit:


John Ferdico recently moved to Kailua Kona from Oakland, California, where he kept a studio for sixteen years.  He exhibited his photographs and photography-based sculpture throughout the United States, and recently had his first exhibition in Hawaii, Artists of Hawai’i 2013 at the Honolulu Museum of Art.
