The Gold Ceramic Pen

 

This is a felt tip pen that may be used to draw right on the glass. After firing you’re drawing will appear in gold.

The first time you use a pen you need to prime the nib by removing the cap and gently tap the nib (pen point) on a hard surface such as a tile. Normally it will take approx. A minute before the nib is loaded with gold. You need to be careful not to overload the nib or when you go to decorate with the pen, too much gold will flow onto the piece. When decorating and the gold seems to be getting too thin, simply prime the nib again once or twice (no more) and start drawing again. Fired between 1328 & 1157 degrees F.

TIP: The ‘ink’ is black before firing so very difficult to see on dark glass; hold your piece up to the light and tilt it to see your drawing. You may draw on a finished or unfinished piece and then fire or re-fire.
