SW-131 - Birch (brush on Gallon) Stoneware Glaze By Mayco
Cone 6: Birch is a creamy opaque off-white glaze that breaks brown.
Cone 10: Cream color remains, and brown undertones darken.
TIP: The thinner the application, the more amber the glaze will be. The thicker the application, the more white floating you will get.
Stoneware classic glazes offer the depth, sophistication and reliability to artists working from mid-range to high-fire temperatures. Many glazes will break over textures, revealing secondary colors and shades. Used alone, stoneware glazes produce beautiful color variations. One coat will allow the clay body to show through the glaze and two to three coats deeper the color. The choice of clay body, thickness of glaze application, firing process and temperature will affect the fired finish.
