SW-211 Glacier Blue
Cone 6: Glacier Blue provides a translucent, light blue gloss color. You will produce beautiful color variations with Glacier Blue without the glaze running off your ware during firing. Designed to provide a hint of color with one coat, deeper color with two to three coats – but remaining translucent.
Cone 10: Color lightens.
TIP: One coat allows more of the clay body characteristics to appear through the glaze, adding a faint color gloss to the surface. Subsequent coats deepen the blue color but at three coats you will still obtain a translucent fired surface. Four+ coats will produce more opacity and less translucency.
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.
