Alabaster is an opaque oatmeal colored glaze. It produces a satiny off-white surface.
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.
Cone 6: Alabaster is a semi-opaque white soft matte glaze that breaks over texture.
Cone 10: Color darkens to variegated light gray/purple.
TIP: When using this glaze, you will be able to pick up the characteristics of the clay body due to it’s white semi opaque finish. Combos really well with 2 coats of stroke and coat on top. It has a satin finish. If you like combos with Sea Salt, you will get similar results with Alabaster minus the crystals.
UPDATE: February 2, 2022: Despite our best efforts, the discontinuation of AmTalc 98 had a great implication to the fired result. Users will notice a slight shift in the fired color result. Please note that the fired result is dependent on firing temperature, atmospheric conditions of the kiln, application, and underlying clay body. The crystal loading has not changed. See below for the wet glaze color comparison of SW-106 Alabaster and the comparison of fired results on chips.
