Liquid Gold

Ok, I went out on an expensive limb and bought some metallic gold luster. The stuff is tiny and dear but it is super popular on ceramics and pottery right now. Here are some of the results:

It is hard to photograph gold!!! There are tiny dots of it in the butterfly wings, and little dots here and there.

I played around with the design of the Texas ring dishes...which one works best?

I made a little diagram where you can see where I pointed out some of the gold.

I used Duncan's bright gold and had 1 fail sadly but the rest worked out ok.

Detail of Gypsy Soul mug where the gold is reflecting.
