Learn how to safely apply real gold to your pots with Jamie! Gold luster and decals are “overglaze” decorations that are applied to completed, glaze-fired pottery. Once applied, gold luster and decals require a third firing to a low temperature. This additional firing is included in the workshop. Pottery with gold luster on it is food safe but not microwave safe.
Please bring 3-5 COMPLETED, glazed pots (that have already gone through a final glaze firing) to the workshop. Pots must be smaller than 10 inchesin any direction. The pots can have Cone 6 or Cone 10 glazes on them, it does not matter. You can bring pots made at other studios, but please no commercial ceramics or pieces from paint-your-own-pottery studios. Please note that gold luster takes on the finish of the glazed surface that it is applied to. If gold luster is applied to pots with a shiny glaze on them, the luster will be a shiny gold. If the luster is applied to pots with a matte glaze on them, it will be a matte gold. If shiny gold is the final look that you are going for, be sure to bring in pots with shiny glazes on them!
All skill levels welcome!
Each attendee will receive their own 2 g. bottle of gold luster and their own n95 mask (luster fumes are toxic). Paint brushes and other supplies will also be provided.
