    I have experimented with lusters just a bit and just on small pieces. I had not thought of wiping out with lusters! This looks like fun! You are so inspiring! >^..^<

    I like this technique. However, sometimes I do not get the end result I am after as the lustres change colour on firing. Does firing more than one colour in the kiln at a time affect your work?

      Hi Jill, thanks for your comments. Working with lustres requires a lot of trial and error, and keeping good records of firing results. I haven't found that firing more than one colour in the kiln affects my work. I do reduce the firing temperatures and soak times depending on the result or colour I want to achieve. Overall I do reduce my firing temperatures for lustres usually by 10 degrees C, of course it depends on how many firings you will do. Most of my lustre work is fired a minimum of 6 to 12 times maximum. So I need to plan and adjust my firings accordingly to control the colour changes. Also, most of my work uses similar colours during the firings- I like to be economical with my paint ;) so I often paint a few pieces at a time if I know I'm working with the same colour. Perhaps that's why I haven't noticed a big difference of colours affecting the firings. I hope that helps.
