Item #: MEL1184
Mayco's E118 Blue Grotto is a beautiful glaze full of blues.
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: Blue Grotto is a glossy, denim blue glaze with a dark gray stain.
Cone 6: Color changes to brown and breaks over texture. 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.
