Liquid Metals are fine gold or palladium dissolved in an organic vehicle. When applied and fired on enamel, the result can be a bright metallic mirror like film of metal. Mother of Pearl when applied and fired onto white opaque enamel has an ‘oil slick’ iridescence when angled in light. It can be applied to other enamel colors but the iridescence may not be as noticeable as when fired over white. All three products are generally fired from 1150 to 1300 degrees F. The object must be fired hot enough to adhere to the enamel and low enough to not burn out. If the liquid metals or mother of pearl are fired too low, they will wipe off. If fired too high they will discolor
