If this formula is not unified correctly please contact us.

Silver nitrate is highly soluble and forms Ag+ ions when dissolved in water. This ion transfers to ware as adhered material and when fired and reduced the Ag metal gives a gold sheen.

It is possible to dry blend the nitrate and carbonate forms and putting these into a glaze to get a better gold sheen.

100 grams of Carbonate is equivalent to 123 grams Nitrate.
