Product Description

AMACO PC-4 Potter's Choice Palladium

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
     
CL Seal

The Art & Creative Materials Institute CL (Caution Label) seal restricts this product from children under the age of 13. Older users must follow all cautionary labeling.
Conforms to ASTM D-4236

     
Dinnerware Safe Not Dinnerware Safe glazes contain no lead or raw cadmium bearing ingredients, but we do not recommend these glazes on surfaces which come in contact with food or drink due to the soft or crackle nature of the glaze, even though they pass tests for hazardous release.
   
 

 

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.

Palladium requires glaze thickness to develop the smooth mirror finish. This glaze is fluid so be careful not to overfire. This glaze likes low porosity bodies. It is also great as an accent glaze or for layering with other AMACO® Potter’s Choice glazes.

PC-4 Palladium, a cone 5-6 glaze is a brilliant shimmering silver colored metallic. It works well over most body colors and types, and can be used as a full glaze or as a decorative accent. Palladium is highly reflective and breaks a soft green tone over texture (Please see the Pre-Columnbian textured tile above).

WARNING: MAY BE HARMFUL IF SWALLOWED. Contains: SOLUBLE COPPER. PRECAUTIONS: Avoid ingestion. Wash hands immediately after use. When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. NOT FOR USE IN HEALTH CARE FACILITIES. KEEP IN ORIGINAL CONTAINER. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. FIRST AID: If swallowed, get prompt medical attention. For further health information, contact a poison control center.
NOT FOR SPRAY APPLICATION.

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.

Application

PC-4 Pallladium is a “Metallic Float Glaze”. As with all float glazes it is important to achieve a good thickness. The float in these glazes consists of metallic materials that give a reflective metal look. If the glaze application is thin, the surface will look splotchy and the metal film will look incomplete. (Note: Palladium tends to be fluid so feathering the glaze near the bottom of a piece is advised or leaving extra room for the glaze to flow. It also looks best on a tight porcelain body.)

Tableware producers must have all finished ware tested and approved as safe for dinnerware through a certified laboratory.
