PINK 1333 LUSTRE 3RD FIRING BLLG1333
Firing temperature : 750-820°C
Luster are inorganic solutions of metallic combinations that allow to obtain very bright decorations with iridescent effects on smooth substrates (glass, enamel, crystal...).
The pigments are either precious metals or tinctorial oxides of certain metals; the solvents are mainly essential oils.
A ready-to-use lustre preparation comes in the form of a perfectly clear solution which does not contain any undissolved pigments in suspension.
Lustres can be used either directly or diluted, depending on the viscosity.
Only oils and essences of the highest quality should be used as thinners.
Chandeliers are applied by brush, spray, pad, direct printing or decal.
Dust and moisture droplets are a hindrance to the application and firing of chandelier decorations, so it is very important that the decoration workshops are kept clean.
In general, chandeliers are applied in the same way as liquid brilliant gold and, after firing, form an extremely thin layer of metal oxides which is partially melted on the surface of the glass or glazes to which it has been applied. It produces certain original effects that cannot be achieved by other means.
