Laguna Metallic Lusters
These overglazes add jewel-like and precious metal decoration to already
glazed pieces. Laguna offers high quality European metallic lusters
available in two popular colors. The 8% concentration of metal exceeds
most other products on the market and provides excellent coverage
and brilliant results.
Apply to the clean, dry surface of your glass with a natural hair
brush. For fine lines use a striping brush like Laguna Clay's EB-856
Camel Hair Sword Striper. Liquid Metallics apply smoother and easier
on a warm surface and on a warm day (warmer than 72°F).
To achieve concentric circles; use a banding wheel, kick wheel, or
bat attached to a potters wheel to achieve a steady spin on the glass
while applying with a brush. Using a Grabber Pad will assist in keeping
your glass in place while you work.
The wrinkled gold or palladium, is achieved by applying the gold or
palladium atop the pre-fired Wrinkle Cream that has been properly
washed. Unwashed surfaces sometimes produce brass or pewter colors,
Liquid Metallics are typically applied just before the slumping process.
Suggested firing temperature is 1100°F. Laguna Liquid Metallics
have been successfully fired as high as 1550°F; results may vary.
