Hi there,

We have 3 pendant lights that are made of translucent porcelain. We are changing our counter tops and the white isn't working with the whitish counters. I want to dye the shades but don't know how to go about it or what product to use. Does anyone have any ideas? They are Justice Design Group lights...

since you know the maker, contact them for advice.

if the porcelain is unglazed, the clay will might take on any number of products to tint it a different color. i would probably do a small test somewhere inconspicuous on the piece, like where the clay's covered by the suspension/electrical parts.

as for what to use, you could probably try some sort of dye or ink made into a wash, or even watercolor may work. i think the product used is dependent on how saturated and how permanent you want the color since something it might fade with time due to the light.
