- – Cone 6: Tiger’s Eye breaks from a glossy deep brownish-red to frothy amber depending on the application thickness. One to two coats will produce browns and reds; three to five coats will result in more glaze movement and colour variation. While you’ll experience beautiful movement with Tiger’s Eye, the glaze will not run off your ware during a cone 6 oxidation firing.
- – Cone 10: Colour darkens.
- – Thinner applications will produce darker browns and reds; heavier applications will lean towards an opaque, light brown finish. Butted against another glaze, Tiger’s Eye will gently merge with it – SW-104 Black Walnut is a nice complementary glaze to use.
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.
