SW-255 Gray Opal
Cone 6: Gray Opal creates a transparent gloss finish. It deepens in color from one coat to three but surface decoration and design remain visible through theglaze even with three coats. The glaze will break and pool around surface textures, creating opportunities for the opalescent character to develop.
Cone 10: Color lightens; becomes more transparent.
TIP: Thinner application will provide a glossy transparent finish. Thicker application will provide blue white floating. Surface decoration will be visible under the glaze, but if you apply the glaze thick, it could blur your image.
Mayco’s line of Stoneware Glazes are available in a beautiful array of colors, tints and tones. They were developed to perform from mid-range (cone 4/6) to higher fire (cone 9/10) temperatures. These glazes work well on both stoneware and porcelain and are designed so that they do not run. Most of Mayco’s Stoneware Glazes are available in pre-mixed pints, as well as a dry mix.
Mayco’s Stoneware Glazes should be applied to bisqued ceramic pieces. If dipping, one coat of glaze is sufficient. Use 2-3 coats if brushing or spraying, allowing glaze to thoroughly dry in between each layer of application. The glazes can be fired from cone 4/6 to cone 9/10 in oxidation or reduction atmospheres. If using dry mixes, no sieving is necessary but it is recommended that the dry materials be mixed before adding water, in case some of the materials have settled in the bag. The ratio of water added to dry mix is approximately 1 pint of water (16 oz.) to 1 pound of dry glaze. Premixed glazes should be stirred well before being applied to pots or other ceramic wares.
The choice of clay body, thickness of glaze application, firing process and temperature will affect the fired results. We recommend that glazes always be tested on your clay body.
Mayco’s Stoneware Glazes are Food Safe, Non Toxic and Non Hazardous when used according to manufacturer's directions.
