Hi, I’ve been working with gold lustre and recently changed brands. I’m familiar with that dreaded purple that appears when the lustre is too thin, and I’ve also seen the lustre crackle when it’s too thick. I’ve not seen this matte kind of finish which is in the photo attached. The piece was glazed entirely and shiny before application. Is the application too thick or thin? If I reapply and refire will it go shiny gold? or is there something else wrong?
From the album: July 2019Thrown porcelain vase, cut vertically from rim. Textured slab attached with slip. Copper & cobalt oxide wash applied to bone dry greenware. Bisqued to 1000oC. Transparent glaze poured inside and brushed on textured addition. Fired to 1200oC (cone 6/7). Gold lustre highlights added then fired to 780oC.
Hi there, I've used the bright gold lustre from Duncan but it wears off quite quickly. Is there a significant difference when using the premium version or not? I make jewelry and particularly my rings loose the golden details way too fast. So I'm wondering if it's worth experimenting with the premium version or just forget the lustres in my case? Lily
