Cone 05.These special effects glazes imitate the Artist/Potter's favorites. They are Cone 05 oxidation glazes that look like high fired reduction stoneware. Effects like Temmoku, Rutile, Oil Spot, and other reduction surfaces are achieved without the cost or trouble of high fire reduction. They can be fired over any earthenware clay, however they look best over dark or red firing clay. The color in the clay will partially show through the texture and add another color dimension to the glaze. These glazes will look completely different depending on the clay they are applied on.
Apply over a mature Cone 04 bisque. Better results are achieved when red clay is fired one or more cones higher than the glaze firing.
For glazes A-24 Exotic Blue and A-40 Seafoam Green glaze fire slowly and add a 20 minutes hold at the end of the firing. The other glazes in the series will work well whether they are fired fast or slow.
Liquid Brushing Directions
DIRECTIONS: Shake well before use. Thin with water and AMACO® Gum Solution if needed. Apply 3 coats of glaze to Cone 04 bisque. (Let the glaze dry between coats.) Glaze fire to Cone 05-06.
