24K Gold

These experiments are going well.....for what they are anyway. These castings I am pleased with - not so much for what they look like but for the way they are coming out of the mold without picking up any texture or kilnwash. Anyone that has tried glass casting knows that this is an exciting outcome. I want to thank my good friend in Georgia for sending me this 24K gold leaf (she is always sending me surprises and encourages me to experiment)

Those are amazing! I wouldn't think gold leaf would hold up under such heat in a kiln. I think they're just beautiful.

Thank You - I would say a semi-success 90 percent of the gold leaf did just disappear the first firing I added more and still most went whereever it goes!
