I have only been working with ceramics for a year and I am mostly self taught / researched. For what i do it works well enough for me, but i have recently hit a snag and i can't seem to find the right info online anywhere - I wonder if anyone can help me.
I applied gold lustre to an earthenware pot recently, When i took it out of the kiln a small patch of the black underglaze had chipped off This happens quite frequently with this particular glaze its usually a small section that pops off and I unusually re-fire to cone 04 for a small repair and its just fine.
I am guessing I cant re-fire the chip area to cone 04 now as I have applied the gold lustre, If I do go ahead and repair the chip will the gold lustre just burn away?
If it does, will it leave the surface area intact for re-applying the gold lustre and re-firing. It sounds like a waste of time, but I would really like to save this pot as best I can before giving up and re-making from scratch.
Does anyone know what it might be best for me to do?
