These special effects glazes imitate the favorites of artisan potters. They are Cone 05 (1911°F) semi-opaque oxidation glazes that yield the look of high-fired reduction stoneware. They can be fired over any Amaco earthenware clay, but look 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 look their best over dark or red firing clay such as Amaco 67M. The color in the clay will show through the glaze somewhat, which adds another color dimension to the glaze. Many different looks can be achieved depending on the clay on which the glazes are applied. Effects like Tommoku, Rutile, Oil Spot and other reduction surfaces are achieved without the cost or trouble of high-fire reduction.
Apply Artist's Choice Glazes 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.
For glazes A-24 Exotic Blue and A-40 Seafoam Green, glaze fire slowly and add a 20-minute hold at the end of the firing. The other glazes in the series will work well whether they are fired fast or slow.
