This luster is a liquid solution that is ready to use. Work on clean and dry surfaces. Keep away from light and heat. Shake before use.
Lusters can be used with either thinner 174 or M-350 medium. Apply with synthetic brushes, airbrush, sponge, paper-creasing technique or by immersion.
The colors are intermixable and can be set over each other (careful not to over-mix the lusters to keep vivid colors).
Lusters must be completely dry before firing. Burn slowly at the beginning, hold gently at 350°C (662°F), and then bring quickly to the firing temperature. Some luster colors cannot withstand a temperature above 800°C (1472°F). Lusters applied over already fired pigments should not exceed 600°C (1112°F) as they may fade completely. The result after firing is iridescent or metallic.
The application of luster colors is best on faience (earthenware) and porcelain.
