Selectively Removing Duncan Gold Luster

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've recently started experimenting with Duncan's Bright Gold and have two questions.

 

On spots where the application was very light (as in, unintended residue) there's purple streaks. How can this be removed?

 

Some of the luster ran and I'd like to clean that up. How can this be done?

 

Would love to hear from the experienced luster users of this fabulous forum.

Thank you!

You are a bit vague -is the luster fired? 

If thats a yes and it ran and you need to clean it up refire it way past luster temps and burn it off-thats my suggestion

I have never tried this but would think it will work-with my work another 2400 degree glaze fire -all lusters would be gone.

Thanks everyone.

What are your thoughts on using rust remover to remove gold luster? I tested it in small area and it does wonders.

But I'm also planning on using it on functional dinnerware. Would it be ok to use it and then just clean the pot with dishwash detergent?

Lusters are not dinnerware safe-neither is rust remover.Dish detergent is not a miracle cleaner-you will need to research the chemicals you are applying in the rust remover to see what takes them off .This is not something we in ceramics do or will give you advice on.

Meaning you are on your own.

I made some small decorative things with gold luster just recently.  I know what you mean about the purple streaks.  And of course the purple fingerprints, and.....I bought a small gold eraser (not expensive) that worked well and I also tried Gold Off.  It also worked fairly well.  Bought it online.   Just google it.....

Mark,

I use the Duncan Bright gold and they're written by the manufacturer to be food safe.

 

Thank you Robert12, I'm just gonna skip the rust remover and go the gold eraser route, since there's no toxic chemicals involved there.

Moh, it does take some effort, with the little eraser.  And it is very small and wears down quickly.  If you plan on doing much of the gold luster work, buy two of the erasers.
