Product Description

AMACO PC-28 Potter's Choice Frosted Turquoise

AMACO Potter's Choice glazes have rapidly become one of our most popular lines for potters schools and hobbyists. These glazes are the perfect choice for those who want a reliable line of mid-fire cone 6 glazes that mimmic Cone 10 reduction in a Cone 6 electric kiln. 

  • Mimic the look of Cone 10 reduction at Cone 6 oxidation (electric)
  • Availble in pints or gallons for brushing and 25lb pails dry for dipping
  • All colors are designed for layering so an almost infinite number of combinations is possible
  • Compatible with virtually any Cone 6 clay bodies
  • Most colors are certified AP Non-Toxic and food safe (see individual color pages or glaze label for specific color information)
  • Well tested and reliable
     
AP Seal

The ACMI AP (Approved Product) Seal shows that the product is certified to be safe for use by children grades K-6. Potential misuses of the product (such as ingesting the material) are taken into account.

This color continues to be AP in its liquid form (pints and gallons). The labeling of the 25 lb. dry dipping form does not carry the AP seal but does include the wording ”Conforms to ASTM D-4236“ to comply with California Proposition 65 requirement for titanium dioxide.

     
Dinnerware Safe Dinnerware Safe glazes contain no lead or raw cadmium bearing ingredients.

Note: In order for glazes to be dinnerware safe, they must be fired to recommended firing temperature. Glaze products are not suitable for ingestion or inhalation.

   
 
Safe for Spraying SPRAYING/AIRBRUSHING: Make sure to use only AP Non-Toxic sprayable glazes for spraying and take the necessary ventilation precautions. We recommend the use of a respirator mask that is suitable for mist and dust when spraying glazes.

For more information on safe glaze spraying take a look at this page from Amaco

     

 

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 5-6.

PC-28 Frosted Turquoise is a very unique glazes with some qualities that can be exploited for additional interest. Heavy application of this glaze allows for a massive float which picks up just a touch of the glaze colorant with it as it forms a coating on top of the fired glaze. The coating cracks open and allows the darker tone of the glaze colorant to show through the cracks before it heals itself and smoothes out. The look is elegant with small slits of darker color showing through the white float. The soft float can be influenced dramatically with beautiful results by placing another pot near the glazed vessel that contains some iron compounds. The iron will volatilize in the kiln at Cone 5/6 and fume the side of the pot allowing for some very naturally fumed looks often found in high fire work.


 

Dry Dipping Directions and Warning

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS: Do not produce dust. Wear a NIOSH approved mask for dust or mist. Do not empty glaze powder into another container. Add water gradually into the bucket, stirring slowly. The glaze level will drop in the bucket as you mix in the water, allowing for more water additions until a creamy consistency is achieved. To insure a homogenous mixture, use a glaze mixer attached to a hand drill. Mix for at least half an hour. Although every glaze formula will have its own special water requirements, a basic recipe is to add 3 1/3 gallons of water to 25 pounds of dry glaze. Add a little more water if needed. One pound of AMACO® dry glaze will make approximately one pint of liquid glaze. Try not to let the glaze become thinner than needed, since the lower the viscosity, the greater the chance that heavy glaze particles will settle out. AMACO® glazes have a sufficient suspending agent to prevent settling unless an excessive amount of water is added. Store prepared glazes in their own airtight buckets.

DIRECTIONS: Stir well before using. If it is too thick, add some water very cautiously until it has the consistency of thin cream (dipping consistency). Dip the Cone 04 (1940°F, 1060°C) bisque fired piece into the glaze, lift it out and turn it over, allowing the excess glaze to pour out. The glaze will stop running as soon as it is lifted out of the bucket. Application is uniform and there is no waiting for it to drip or dry. Fire to witness Cone 5-6.

Request Material Safety Data Sheets when using in manufacturing. Tableware producers must test all finished ware to establish dinnerware status, due to possible variations in firing temperature and contamination.

WARNING: This product contains a material known to the State of California to cause cancer.


 

Application

PC-28 Frosted Turquoise is an “Artistic Heavy Float Glaze”. Heavy float glazes float a full coverage of excess material which will actually crack on the surface float (and then heal over) showing contrast between the lighter floated material and the darker base color. If the glaze is not applied heavy enough, the float will not be thick enough to crack and show the contrast. The cracking float surface also makes these ideal for layering on top of other glazes. (A note of caution with these glazes; they are easily fumed by near-by pots that contain iron compounds or other volatiles. This can also create a beautiful look if desired but keep this in mind.)
