Mixing Lusters. The established procedure of mixing colors to achieve a desired shade does not apply to luster. Green color for example, cannot be obtained by blending blue and yellow lusters.  Though intermixing of lusters is not recommended doing so would generally, result in unexpected colors.

Marbleizing.  Apply coating, either let dry or right after dribble Essence or Dispersing Agent with a dropper or fan brush at different areas of the coated piece to produce an irregular pattern.  Random daubing with Essence wetted sponge or brush can also be tried.  Similarly, with using thinned luster instead of Essence or Dispersing Agent.   Krackle Liquid applied over tacky dry luster would produce a network of luster color.

Two Fire Luster.  Beautiful effects are obtained by firing lusters over previously fired luster or metallic.  The Mother of pearl luster could be fired on and obtained an iridescent film with the previously fired color as background. Pink on Bright Gold produce pink gold (Amber=reddish bronze; Turquoise=blue green iridescence and brilliant steel blue on White Gold).  These brilliant multicolored effects cannot be duplicated with any other process.

Luster on Glass.  Luster applied on glass can simulate colored glass and can be easily cut or grind through with no detrimental effect on the cutting wheel to mimic cut case glass.
