Lustre daisies on porcelain

I started this plate a while ago, see tutorial for Lustres…as I described in that post, this daisies painting on a porcelain plate has been created by using left over lustres from other project.  I always have other plates or objects available so that my lustres don’t go to waste.  This week, I completed the plate, and I used up some burnishing gold paint that I was using for another project.  I love the turquoise colour of the lustre and the decorative effect of the platinum and gold work at the bottom.  I’m still practising taking photos of lustre work, as each angle captures a different light and colour- which is why I love working with these paints.

First firing: The daisies on this piece are wiped out with a brush and dampened paper towelling and fired.

 

 

Second Firing: Defining flowers with liquid platinum.

This is the result of the 2nd firing……you can see a change in colour as I raised the temperature saturation for this firing….also some extra platinum detail was added to bottom of plate.

 

 

Third Firing:  Burnishing gold pen work accents for definition.  You’ll see that the gold work and platinum sort of merge together, making it look like a more natural graduated highlight.  It is important that for any lustre work, that you ‘know’ your kiln and how it fires, as you can control a lot of the firing process and maturation of colour.
