      Moderators needed!   12/08/2017

      Ceramic Arts Network is looking for two new forum moderators for the Clay and Glaze Chemistry and Equipment Use and Repair sections of the Ceramic Arts Network Community Forum. We are looking for somebody who is an active participant (i.e. somebody who participates on a daily basis, or near daily) on the forum. Moderators must be willing to monitor the forum on a daily basis to remove spam, make sure members are adhering to the Forum Terms of Use, and make sure posts are in the appropriate categories. In addition to moderating their primary sections, Moderators must work as a team with other moderators to monitor the areas of the forum that do not have dedicated moderators (Educational Approaches and Resources, Aesthetic Approaches and Philosophy, etc.). Moderators must have a solid understanding of the area of the forum they are going to moderate (i.e. the Clay and Glaze Chemistry moderator must be somebody who mixes, tests, and has a decent understanding of materials). Moderators must be diplomatic communicators, be receptive to others’ ideas, and be able to see things from multiple perspectives. This is a volunteer position that comes with an honorary annual ICAN Gold membership. If you are interested, please send an email outlining your experience and qualifications to jharnetty@ceramics.org.

Silver glaze/ ceramic glaze sealer

Recommended Posts

I received an order for a special wedding present. A ceramic champagne holder (vase) and champagne glasses, colors are red, white and silver. I was able to achieve a very nice white and red, but am having a really hard time with silver! I fired my piece at cone 9, so there wasn't any options of a silver high fire glaze. I used a silver sharpie pen to create a thin line, which looks really nice, but comes off very easily with water. The small silver accent line is on the outside of the pieces and doesn't necessarily have to be food safe, just permanent!

 

Anyone know of a permanent clear sealer I can apply on top of glaze??

 

Or a permanent silver paint that will stick on glaze????

Nothing you can do with a silver sharpie ... it's just a dye with something to stick ... you can try to clear coat it with a clear spray paint ... but the acetone and xylene in spray paint will dissolve it.

 

That being said ...

 

 

 

Why did you not think to silver leaf the job? http://www.gildedplanet.com/howtogoldleaf.asp

you might want to try pebeo porcelaine 150 those are enamels that fire in your house oven at 325F for 40 minutes and they are as permanent as glaze. they are really strong and actually dishwasher safe once they have been fired. they have all kinds of metallic colors.
