Spectrum’s 1156 Olive Stone is a cone 4/6 stoneware glaze. It produces a brownish olive green surface that is brighter on white clays than on darker ones. All of Spectrum’s 1100 Stoneware Glazes are available in wet formats and are suitable for brush application.
S1156 is one of Spectrum's Reactive Glazes. They are all lead free, non-toxic and dinnerware safe. They are formulated to produce reactions during the firing cycle which give very interesting and beautiful effects. The final appearance of the glaze is dependent on firing temperature, glaze thickness and the composition of the clay body being used. The sample shown has 3 coats of glaze brushed on a white clay and is fired to cone 5 in an electric kiln.
Try overlapping glazes for new and interesting glaze results. Some of Spectrum Glazes are designed to move and shift in the glaze firing resulting in beautifully bright and layered looks.
