May 19 | Luster Overglaze Demonstration

Saturday May 19th | Free Luster Overglaze Demonstration 

This Saturday, we are open from 9am-1pm! We will be having a free demonstration of luster overglazes at 10:30am. 

Luster is a metallic overglaze that can be applied after a ceramic piece has been glaze fired. These overglazes come in a variety of colors from purple to orange, as well as a gold that contains real gold. Similar to ceramic decals, these lusters are fired at a low temperature (between Cone 019-018) and should be the last firing for the ceramic piece. 

Luster's can be applied with a clean, designated brush, or the Gold Pen or Fluid Writer Pen to create intricate details. For best results, clean the piece with alcohol prior to application to ensure the best results. For cleanup, the brushes can be cleaned with a solvent called Essence, which can also be used the thin the lusters if they get thick.

New Product Alert!

Rovin will now be carrying five new luster colors: orange, purple, mother of pearl, turquoise, and blue. These beautiful new colors will accompany the palladium and gold we have always carried.
