Mayco's Stoneware Glazes
Mayco’s line of Stoneware Glazes are available in a beautiful array of colors, tints and tones. These glazes were developed to perform from mid-range (cone 4/6) to higher fire (cone 9/10) temperatures. Mayco's Stoneware 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.
These glazes are gorgeous, especially on pottery that has lots of texture. They form beautiful effects when they are both thin and thick on the same piece. 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.
