    Hello, I am totally new to pottery and ceramics. I wish to use a metallic lustre glaze on a jewellery box. I have done the bisque firing. My question is: do I need to put an underglaze on first and do a firing, then put on the lustre glaze and do another firing? As I say I am a complete beginner
    thank you all tips offered :-)

    Hi Al and Welcome to the Crafts Forum.

    I don't know anyone on here who can answer your question but I have a couple of ceramic friends on FB will ask them if they know the answer.

    Here you go.....

    I can tell him how I would do it, but first I think you can get a lustre effect from certain glazes but itís how they are fired that gives the effect. I think itís a reduction atmosphere in a gas kiln but Iím not sure. As you know I painted on white porcelain with lustres for many years. These are used on already glazed pieces and work best on a white body like porcelain and bone China. They are fired to 780 C. I would buy them from held.co.uk If he is interested thereís probably some information on my blog, he can see some examples too. I hope thatís helpful Jill xx
