Liquid Bright Gold Application

Recommended Posts

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!

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.
