Ever wanted to add a little bit of sparkle to your work? Join teacher Kimberly Swanner for this one-day workshop on how to add gold luster to your ceramic work! Students are required to bring between one to five glazed works to the class if they want to participate in the actual application of gold luster on their work. An assortment of lusters and decals will be provided.

In lusterware, liquid metal luster is applied over vitrified pieces that have already been glazed and fired. They then undergo a third special firing which results in a metallic iridescent final look.

Gold Luster is made of particles of real gold suspended in a liquid medium. This organic binder burns off in the firing, providing beautiful gold accents on your glazed work.

Workshop participants will receive instruction on several different application techniques as well as safety and health protection issues. The workshop will take place in a relaxed outdoor setting to ensure proper ventilation.
