The course will begin with the knowledge of precious metals (gold and lustres) and their peculiarities, and will then move on to the preparation of the objects to be decorated, up to their application through personal decoration exercises. The course will continue with third-firing colours, and the various steps necessary to personalise already glazed objects with decorations (fillets, lettering, etc.) and backgrounds will be explored.
