Hi Eveyrone,

 

thanks for all the help so far on this site, its a fantastic community!

 

i have a small question about Liquid Bright Gold; can i apply it over a glaze that i have already fired - at witness cone 06?

 

i have some pieces that were fired at 06, then glazed and fired at 06, now i would like to add some further decoration with the liquid bright gold, which says it needs to be fired to 019-018. 

 

so the simple question is: can i apply it over already fired glazes?

 

sorry if it seems a stupid question! i'm learning all the time!

 

thanks so much!

Toni

Fab!! thank you!

should i prep the surface in some way? a wipe with a paper towel, wash with water, or brush with gold essence? or just go for it?

thanks!

It is more important to keep the surface dust free after it is painted. Contaminants will affect results.

Hey everybody,


I want to apply liquid bright gold to a porcelain and this happened (look the picture posted).
I cleaned the surface with 70% alcohol and everything is clean because I used new stuff. Why I have this problem where I can see some white spots through gold coat?

Thanks everybody who can help :)

This is not my field but 30 years ago I used up more than one bottle of gold luster. The thing is clean-clean with something that leaves NO residue-and after application keep dust off-we used to paint load and fire same day-no dust issues

Achohol leaves a film if I recall-you need a better cleaner.

Hers some tips from Baileys web site on thier use.

And remember to apply that stuff with gloves and a respirator! Luster is icky icky stuff to breathe or get on your skin. My college instructor always harped on us about it...
I would use a few test tiles and do some trial and error work. Do you have a test kiln? That might help a lot and take less time!

Thanks guys a lot.
So, you think this is cleaning problem after all?

Can it be that this is a contaminated gold? I heard that this can be a problem.
Also, I see sometimes purple color.

I am new to this, so sorry for begginer's questions but if you have any other tip, please, be my guest :)

Either your surface had some film or you let dust settle on it or your brush was contaminated or a few others i'm missing.

I cannot speak about the bottle of gold-it seems the other problems would be greater than the bottle.
