Mayco – Cone 06 - EL-101 Oyster Shell
Rich & Elegant
Inspired by aspects of nature, Elements™ and Elements™ Chunkies produce lush, organic, and earthy hues. This high performance art glaze gives the artist a wide variety of options in one product as application, firing temperature and shape will influence the outcome. Elements ™ and Element ™ Chunkies were designed to simulate the aesthetic, movement and interest of mid-range and high fire glazes in a cone 06/05 oxidation kiln firing.
Elements™ and Element™ Chunkies are designed to mature at cone 06/05. Apply 2-3 coats to shelf cone 04 bisque, allow to dry between coats. As movement and flowing are characteristics of these glazes, taper off toward the bottom of the ware to prevent glazes running off the piece onto kiln shelves. Elements™ and Elements™ Chunkies can be fired at higher temperatures but will change in appearance. We recommend testing prior to use. The ever popular FN-215 Aztec Jade, FN-217 Evergreen Fir, FN-218 Green Sapphire, and FN-219 Lustre Green are now part of the Elements product family as their performance characteristics are similar.
- Uneven glaze application can affect the look of the glaze. We recommend application in one direction.
- Allow ample room for air circulation in the kiln during the firing process as heat work and adequate oxygen can influence the glaze appearance. Many of the Elements™ produce interesting effects at cone 6 but will change color. We recommend testing to determine color, surface characteristics and movement prior to use.
