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.

Frosted Melon benefits from a heavier application to achieve its color breaking effect. The glaze color is susceptible to variation due to iron fuming from nearby pots. This glaze is also great to use as a top glaze when layering with other AMACO® Potter’s Choice glazes.

PC-49 Frosted Melon is a very unique glaze 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.

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.


 

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: 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.

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


 

Application

PC-49 Frosted Melon 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.)
