Compacting the surface of a pot or slip coating on a pot to give a polished finish. Hard smooth objects like pebbles or spoons are used.
The process of finishing a metal surface by contact with another harder metal to improve it. To make smooth or glossy by or as if by rubbing; polish. Search for burnish books on Amazon.co.uk
The ancient rubbing process of burnishing polishes the outside skin of a clay pot while greatly reducing its porosity. This finishing is done by hand, using a stone or a metal piece which is usually embedded in a wad of wet clay that perfectly fits the burnisher's hand.
The flattening out of the raised dotted surface of a mezzotint in order to create contrasting tonal areas on the printing plate, using a steel mushroom shaped tool. This burnisher is also used to knead ,"roll out" and obliterate mistakes made on an etched or engraved plate.
Sometimes known as polishing. Production of a smooth, sometimes glossy surface by polishing the leather-hard (unfired) pot with a smooth-surfaced hard tool such as a pebble or bone. The burnishing compresses the clay minerals to produce a very dense continuous surface which has a dull gloss. It can be used to fix pigment particles such as hematite by rubbing them into the surface. Burnishing with a flat or narrow tool can produce a faceted effect.
The smoothing of surfaces by ribbing under pressure, essentially without removal of the surface layer.
spots of increased sheen where paint is rubbed. Usually caused by using flat finish in areas subject to heavy wear and soiling; repeated spot washings using abrasive cleansers; or objects rubbing against painted surface.
Essentially a polishing process in which the rounded edges and point of a metal blade set in a wooden handle are used to compact and smooth the surface of a formed silver object, or to brighten the dull surface of cast silver.
Polishing through friction typically from high speed mechanical means using a polishing agent.
using a light colored pencil or metal object with heavy pressure and applying it over a layered or drawn surface. It makes the colors look brighter, sometimes lighter and can give an image a polished or reflective look.
The polishing needed on high quality gilding (gold decoration) of china after it is fired, to bring up the shine.
is the scraping away of roughened areas on a plate with a piece of either curved or straight hardened steel. The tool is called a burnisher.
Method of polishing by rubbing the surface with a hard, smooth tool, such as agate, to create lustre.
A polishing process. Commonly used to remove oxidation from precious metal decorations after firing.
Burnishing is the polishing of metal by rubbing. A steel tool is rubbed against non-ferrous metals to obtain a high polish.
The act of rubbing greenware (clay) with any smooth tool to polish it, and tighten the surface.
Forcefully rubbing over a colored area with a light-colored pigment to create a satiny, pearly finish
A Technique where the leather hard clay is polished with a hard instrument to force the smallest clay particals to the surface creating a soft sheen, this surface remains after the pot is fired.
The formation of shiny areas on a painted surface, as a result of rubbing or washing.
Bring a polished surface to high gloss by finishing off with any of several methods.
Burnishing is the glossy or shiny spots on a painted surface caused by rubbing, washing, wiping and scrubbing. Flat paints are especially susceptible to burnishing.
A method of engraving on metal that allows for wider line widths than diamond engraving without having to rout deeply into the material. It is a surface technique generally done on coated metals such as lacquered brass. A faceted, rotating tool called a burnisher removes the lacquer coating and exposes the bare metal.
Polishing leather-hard clay or terra sigillata by rubbing the surface with a smooth pebble or metal spoon or dry chamois.
The creation of a lustre on metal by rubbing the surface with a smooth hard agate (or similar) tool.
a process in which the surfaces of a planchet or coin are made to shine through rubbing or polishing
Polishing to secure a bright, glossy finish. In shoemaking, the sole edges and heels are waxed and burnished.
the process of rubbing the surface of a leather-hard or dry clay object with a hard object, such as a stone or a piece of glass or metal. This creates a polished look and reduces the piece's porosity, making the clay more resistant to water absorption.
A glazed surface finishing usually resulting from using a dull or loaded grinding wheel or coated abrasive. Also a finishing process that relies upon ductile movement of workpiece materials to achieve the desired surface characteristics.
Creating a polished finish on paper by rubbing with stone or hand smoothing a surface.
A process by which leatherhard or blackhard clay is made smooth by rubbing it with a hard smooth object like a stone, spoon or piece of glass. This procedure gives the piece a polished look. Burnished pots are usually unglazed but sometimes fine slips are applied to add to the decorating. Burnishing not only adds a glossy surface, it also contributes to the durability of the clay by making it more resistant to water absorption. See also leatherhard, blackhard, slip.
A process of producing a polished, shiny surface by rubbing a smooth stone over the surface of pots or bowls after the application of a clay slip.
A fabrication method of securing a smooth finished surface by slight deformation with highly polished tools.
Polishing leatherhard clay by rubbing with a smooth stone or back of a spoon etc.
A process in which non-precision balls are used as a media to smooth or brighten parts in tumbling barrels. Burnishing media is mostly made of carbon steel.
A method used to smooth a vessel surface. In burnishing a vessel, a smooth object like a stone is rubbed over a vessel surface. The result is a polished surface. This method also strengthens the surface bond of clay particles.
Developing a smooth finish on a metal by tumbling or rubbing with a polished hand tool.
Burnishing is a polishing method that magnifies the shine and luster of a metal by combining friction and compression without eliminating any metal.
is a process that by rubbing a smooth stone over the surface results in a shiny surface. The process is done after the application of clay slip
Shiny or lustrous spots on a paint surface caused by rubbing.
Rubbing the reverse side of the printing paper which has been placed over the inked surface of the block, with a smooth rounded object.
A process in which the surfaces of a coin or a planchet are shined through rubbing or polishing. This term has both a positive and a negative context: In a positive sense, Proof planchets are burnished before they are struck. The procedure was done originally by rubbing wet sand across the surfaces to impart a mirror-like finish. In a negative sense, the surfaces on repaired or altered coins may be burnished by mechanical or chemical methods. For example, a high-speed drill with a wire brush attachment is used to achieve this effect.
