Bright Gold Lustre - 2 Grams

Lustres are an onglaze which contain metallic particles that are suspended in a thick spirit solution. They are applied with a brush on to glazed ceramics.

Recommended Firing:

  • Earthenware and Stoneware Ceramics: 690°C – 700°C
  • Porcelain: 750°C
  • Fire at a rate of 150°-220°C per hour.

Working notes:
These products are ready-to-use from the bottle but do stir as much as possible with a thin implement. From the bottle they are a ‘honey’ like solution, If the lustre proves too thick to be useable, then you can use a ‘Thinner’. The precious metal lustres do not need to be thinned except if they have dried out. Use a soft haired paint brush or liner brush for application. Wares should be cleaned and dry, brush evenly for best results being careful not to overload with the lustre. Allow the ware to dry completely before placing in the kiln.

As some of these products are expensive to use, to avoid disappointment we do advise testing before applying to your final wares, and the use precision scales when thinning the solution for greater accuracy.

Health and Safety:
The medium in which the lustre is suspended is a spirit which gives off a heady smell. We suggest the wearing of a mask with A1/A2 filters (EN14387:2004) when applying. Store bottles in a well ventilated area or even outside. A sensible idea for institutions or a business is the purchase of a specially designed cupboard which is lockable and is fire proof.
