Cone 05.These special
effects glazes imitate the Artist/Potter's favorites. These Amaco low fire glazes are Cone 05 oxidation glazes that look like high fired reduction stoneware.
Effects like Tommoku, Rutile, Oil Spot and other reduction surfaces are
achieved without the cost or trouble of high fire reduction. These Amaco low fire glazes can be fired over any earthenware clay; however, they look their best over dark or red firing clay. The color in the clay
will partially show through the texture and add another color dimension
to the glaze. These glazes will look completely different depending on
the clay they are applied on.
Apply over cone 04 fired bisque or higher. Better results are achieved
when red clay is fired one or more cones higher than the glaze firing.
Amaco Artist's Choice low fire glazes are available in pints.
For glazes A-24 Exotic Blue and A-40 Seafoam Green glaze fire slowly
and add a 20 minutes hold at the end of the firing. The other glazes in
the series will work well whether they are fired fast or slow.
