Mayco Stoneware Glazes - 16 Ounces
Stoneware Crystal glazes are designed to expand upon the surface with dazzling bursts of color. Fired results will vary based on wareís orientation. Crystals will settle to the bottom of the jar and will need a good mixing prior to initial use. Re-stir between each coat. Stir with palette knife or other unpainted tool. Avoid placing crystals near the bottom third of a vertical piece as they may cause additional movement during firing. Crystals will flow more than the base glaze. While the glaze is wet, use your fan brush to redistribute the crystals to achieve balanced coverage. Over-application or heavy deposition of the crystals can cause pinholing or running. When storing a crystal glaze, you may consider storing upside down to facilitate crystal dispersion on the next use.
Cone 6: Sandstone is a matte, off-white glaze that contains a variety of brown crystals that melt during the firing. Thicker application and heavy crystal concentration will produce more glossy blue/purple variation.
Cone 10: Color darkens. Glossy blue/purples become more prominent.
TIP: SW-172 Macadamia is the base glaze. For a lighter crystal effect, you may try applying two coats of SW-172 Macadamia with a third coat of SW-176 Sandstone.
