Description

Cone 6: Blue Opal is a medium blue semi-transparent to fully opaque gloss glaze. Thinner applications create a transparent blue haze; thicker coatings produce an opaque finish. Surface textures can cause the glaze to collect and produce streaks of greyish blue.

Cone 10: Becomes more transparent. Can produce red mottling in a heavy reduction.

TIP: Light applications on brown and buff bodies will produce a transparent green-blue gloss finish. Thinner application will provide a glossy transparent finish. Thicker application will provide light blue floating. Surface decoration will be visible under the glaze, but if you apply the glaze thick, it could blur your image.

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 colours and shades. Used alone, stoneware glazes produce beautiful colour variations. One coat will allow the clay body to show through the glaze and two to three coats deepen the colour. The choice of clay body, thickness of glaze application, firing process and temperature will affect the fired finish.
