AMACO – Cone 5/6 – SH-31 Cacao Gloss
Cacao Gloss Shino is a glossy, 100% mixable mid-fire glaze that yields wonderfully varied shades of brown and tan depending on the thickness of application.
Tableware producers must test all finished ware to establish dinnerware status, due to possible variations in firing temperature and contamination.
Influenced by the humble earthiness of tea ceremony bowls, our Shino glazes give a traditional high-iron look to any high fire clay body. Beautiful on textured or smooth clay bodies, blendable to get the right degree of matte or glossy surface.
Shino glazes can also be layered with our PC line of glazes for different effects.
•Heavy Iron reduction look in oxidation
•Suitable for Red or White Clay
•Blendable to get gloss or matte variations
