Overglaze and Lusters

Gold Lusters and Mother of Pearl. 

Metallic Overglazes for the brilliance of gold and luster of a rainbow.

Paint with  Precious Metals like gold, and platinum! Apply over fired glaze to add brilliant accents that’ll make your project look like a billion bucks!

Metallic Overglazes for the brilliance of gold and white gold, and lusters for a rainbow of hues like the pearl of an oyster shell.

Overglazes are an accent product that are applied over a fired glaze and then kiln fired to a relatively low temperature. They are sometimes referred to as "third fire" glazes.

Mother of Pearl is a luster, an overglaze; it is applied over a shiny fired glaze of any color. (Copper glazes should not be used). Any natural hair brush will work, it should be clean. Apply MOP in swirls, just one thin coat. You want to see brushstrokes; they will be the swirls in the finished piece. Fire to cone 020.

    How to use Essence Swish overglaze brush in solvent until bristles are free of product. Wipe on paper towel.

    Tips & Techniques

    Use a separate bottle of Essence for each overglaze product. Mark the bottles according to which overglaze product was used. Contamination can result if brushes and/or Essence used with one product come in contact with brushes and/or Essence used with another. For example, if you use Bright Gold and clean your brush in one bottle of Essence, then clean a brush used with Mother of Pearl in that same bottle of Essence, contamination will result and compromise all subsequent firings.
