Hi Ilene!

Have you considered using a metallic Raku glaze, and raku-firing the dome?

A friend of mine had a similar commission, from his Baptist Church. He made
the entire church in sections, so that he could high-fire/low-fire/raku as
needed, then joined the pieces with epoxy. The steeple was raku-fired with a
golden metallic glaze, to provide a shining golden glow, a request from the
pastor of the church.

Best wishes!

There is a gold made by Amaco, it fires to ^04 or
^06.. I have never actually used it, but the picture
looks like it's worth a test tile...
