Product Information
Goldrush Firing pen - write in genuine gold!
Want to add delicate trim and detail to your design, or simply decorate and personalise your glass? This pen is an ideal purchase as it retains the gold colour on firing so all your hard work will not be lost in the kiln. Also works on ceramics.
For Best Results, please follow these suggested instructions prior to use: 
  1. Once you have received your Gold Rush Pen, place the pen, tip down, in a container and leave tip down for at least 24 hours prior to first use.
  2. When ready to use the pen, DO NOT SHAKE! Leave the pen tip down and depress the tip onto a flat surface.
  3. Hold the tip to the surface for 30-60 seconds, lifting the tip on and off the paper occasionally to help the flow of the material.
  4. Once the tip has completely filled with the material, the pen is ready to use. NOTE: Make sure to store your pen tip down to ensure material is near the tip for future use.

Fire in a well ventilated kiln. It is possible to fire this to a full fuse but we recommend testing the pen in your own kiln first. Not recommended for microwave kilns. Can be fired on top or between layers. Ensure your glass is thoroughly clean before applying the pen.

Recommended firing ranges:
Glass: 600C - 720C
​Ceramic: 700C - 782C
Porcelain: 777C - 837C
Once fired, the applied gold has a karat weight of 23 to 24!
This pen is great for fine detail, for more coverage we recommend the Metallic Gold Glassline pen.

Very disappointed in this pen. I bought it for convenience but at this price could have bought liquid gold paint. Patchy delivery
so clean lines not possible.

WARM GLASS RESPONSE: I'm sorry you were not happy with your pen. A member of our customer services team will be in contact with you to resolve this for you.

The gold is totally unpredictable, I did a test at it turned out perfect. Then I finished my project and it is worthless.

This product is very unpredictable and erratic.
I have used it before successfully.
I have this morning taken out of the kiln a piece made for a wedding tomorrow with quite a lot of the gold pen detail. Fired on a tack fuse. The gold has not 'turned' gold but shows as a dirty brown colour. Extremely disappointed not to say cross. This piece I had made had taken a lot of work with 2 previous firings, this was the final firing. I feel that it has completely spoilt my work.

This pen is probably great if all you need it to do is a small amount of decoration on jewellery perhaps. Did a few very small tester pieces first and it has a good colour when fired whether its on top or between the glass however if I needed to choose I would put the pen on the clear capping glass then sandwich it between the clear cap and the base glass. You cant really draw it on as the nib leaves a scraping effect down the centre of the line you draw so it does need to be put on fairly generously. Sadly this means it doesn't go very far. By my rough calculations I think it would do a distinctive straight line around 150 cm long which is a lot of initials but not a great deal of decorative work. You have to keep shaking the pen otherwise the decoration is a bit patchy. I taped the pen to an electric toothbrush but didn't get the opportunity to see if this helped. I attempted to decorate a leaf design around the outside edge of a 30cm diameter bowl. Unfortunately it didn't get as far as the kiln as the pen ran out about a third of the way around. I had to just wipe it off and give up on the idea. I did try to find out how far the pen would write before I bought it but I couldn't find the information anywhere. Personally I think the pen for me was a waste of money but lesson learned I suppose. I wouldn't spend the money on this again. Back to the mica.......

Great pen, easy to apply some good fine detail and colour fires really well... a very shiny gold finish

Tried this in my mircrowave kiln and it worked absolutely great! The tip is fine enough to create fairly delicate patterns, and the color turns into shiny and bright gold after fusing.

This work perfectly just as it says. Can be used between layers or simply on top. Good colour. Nothing lost during firing. Easy to use - much easier than enamels.
