Tips for on-glaze painting:
Cadmium reds and yellow:
These warm colo urs need to be applied more thickly and fired at a
slightly lower temperature, to 790C (maximum), with little orno soak.
This method is most relevant to P4288 Golden Yellow.

Transparent colours:
Any on-glaze or glass paint can be made transparent by the addition of
clear flux.
Products available from Potterycrafts are:
R5925 - Mixing flux for low sol colours
R5926 - Mixing flux forl ow sol colours, suitable for use with cadmium
R5625 -Mixing flux for leadless colours
R5930 - Mixing flux for glass colours (high temperature)
R5948 - Mixing flux for glass colours(medium temperature)
These fluxes can also be used as a protective layer over on-glaze
decoration to give extra durability.
Outlines for designs can be traced or drawn free hand using a soft pencil
or fine marker pen. For a more permanent result, a pale brown or grey
on-gla ze colour can be used with a fine brush or pen. This can then be
fired to give an outline which will not be lostafter thefirst firing.
Outlines are best done on ware that has been de-greased with turpentine
and dried.

Matt colours:
On-glaze colours can be matted down with the addition of a matting
agent such as zincoxide. This should be mixed at approximately two
parts colour to one part matting agent.
Metals and lustr es:
Whenworking with any metals or lustres, we recommend you use a
brush dedicated to those products. Do notwash your brush with soap
and water, as this may cause faults on your next application. Rinse used
brushes int he appropriate essence and then wrap the bristle in
aluminium foil. If necessary, soften your brush with essencebefore
