Decorating Colors are supplied in time-saving, ready-to-use form in two
ounce jars, pint jars, and two sets of 12 assorted two ounce jars. The

colors are used for detailed painting, sgraffito decoration, water
color effects, free brush painting, wax resists and mishima decoration.
Twenty-four Easy-to-Apply Colors. Twenty-four intense colors are
available and other colors, shades and tints are made by blending. The
colors may be brushed (1) on greenware which is to be bisque fired
before applying a covering glaze, (2) on mature Cone 04 bisque, then
covering glaze applied and fired to maturing temperature of the clear
glaze. Color chips shown above were glazed with LG-10 and fired to Cone
For opaque coverage by brushing, the consistency of the color in the
jar is correct. White slip may be tinted by adding small amounts of
most LUG colors to produce colored slip. Intensity depends on quantity
used. To color moist clay, cut clay in very thin slices, pour LUG color
between slices and wedge until uniform color is achieved.
Since the colors are approximately the same tone before and after
firing, the effectiveness of color combinations and blending is
observed as the painting progresses.
glazes are applied on decorated bisque shapes, and the pieces are fired
to the maturing temperature of the glaze. AMACO® Glazes LG-9, LG-10,
F-10 and HF-9 are recommended as clear glazes. LUG-25 will appear Green
Turquoise under LG-9 and Blue Turquoise under LG-10. Colored
transparent glazes in the LG, F and HF series may be selected for
unusual effects. For best results, apply two coats only of LUG-51, 52,
54, 55, and 56.
AMACO® liquid underglazes have only been tested and approved as
dinnerware safe when applied and fired under AMACO® LG-10 Clear Glaze.
Other glazes may also be used. Tableware producers must test all
finished ware to establish dinnerware status, due to possible
variations in firing temperature and contamination.
