Gold Luster Decals
These decals may be applied to clear or colored glazes. They may also be added on top of a fired decal and re-fired for a layered effect. Applying gold decals on a dark glaze surface can be tricky because the dark brown coloring of the gold decal may blend in with the dark glaze color. Try to be as accurate as possible with the decal placement. Touches of liquid fired gold trim or lettering can be added after the gold decal has dried. Clean these areas with denatured alcohol to remove all traces of adhesive from the decal before applying the liquid gold.
