Item #: MEL1314
Mayco's E131 Turtle Shell is an opaque greenish brown glaze that pools green when thick.
Mayco’s Low Fire Elements Glazes were designed to simulate the aesthetic, movement and interest of mid range and hire fire glazes. These glazes fire to cone 06 in an oxidation kiln. The level of variegation exhibited by theses glazes can be influenced by factors such as the number of coats applied, combinations with other glazes, clay body surface textures and kiln atmosphere and temperature. Mayco’s Elements are made of a freely flowing formula, which causes the glaze to move and variegate, both on its own and in combination with other glazes.
Mayco’s Elements are non-toxic. Use of a soft fan brush for application is recommended.
Some Elements may produce pleasing effects when fired to cone 6, though all will produce different colors than is seen at lower temperatures.
Cone 06: Turtle Shell is a glossy, greenish teal glaze that breaks dark greenish teat at three coats. It has an orangish brown stain.
Cone 6: Color changes to a semi-translucent, variegated olive green/blue that breaks over texture and pools blue. Enhanced mobility. Surface issues may occur.
TIP: This glaze WILL move. Take care when using on vertical pieces reduce glaze thickness towards the bottom third to minimize run-off.
