1Fire, (low fire, cone 06) paint on bone dry or bisque.
Our line of low fire glazes are ideal for the busy classroom, production potter and large scale projects. They perform best when dipped however these glazes come out great painted, glaze trailed or even sprayed. But what makes them really unique is how good they look when applied to un-fired clay and slowly fired once. Shown in the pictures above are pictures of a large scale mural project completed for Philadelphia’s Public Transportaion Authority, SEPTA. Permanently installed at 56th and Market St. Over 2000 handmade tiles were created based on Artist, Ed Hughes’ winning design. Cost and time restraints forced The Ceramic Shop’s low fire glazes to be applied to the bone dry work and once fired. Our Real Clear was used over Amaco’s Velvet Underglazes with beautiful results.
The glazes layer nicely over each other and are available in the classic colors everyone needs. Another nice feature of the 1Fire glazes is their tendency to not settle. Most commercial glaze manufacturers use suspension aids to prevent settling, often this product can degrade and cause the the glaze to go rock hard. So if you are doing a large scale project or maybe a school mural our 1Fire glazes will be a smart choice and save you a bundle, when buying in gallon sizes or in dry quantities.
