Welcome to dickblick
Amaco Potter’s Choice glazes achieve the effects of Cone 10 reduction without the need for a reduction gas kiln or firing to high temperatures. These lead-free glazes are made to fire at Cone 5-6 (2205°F–2269°F, 1207°C–1243°C), in an oxidation kiln.
Glazes are available in pint liquid, gallon liquid, or 25 lb dry packages. The 25 lb dry dipping glazes are packaged in 5 gallon buckets for easy pouring. Only stirring is necessary before application. For spraying and dipping, glazes may be thinned with water. See manufacturer's instructions for spray application. PC-4 is not dinnerware safe.
For best results, follow these special application instructions for the following PC series glazes.
Note — Please see Resources tab for more layering and application techniques.
Blue Rutile needs to be applied heavily. Apply at least four coats. It will flow just a little and create beautiful effects.
Shino needs to be applied irregularly. Apply two irregular coats. Once you have used it a while you will see the effects you can get by varying the application.
Salt Buff has to be applied on the thin side. No more than two irregular coats are needed to get the random effect of salt glazing.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.
Amaco Potter's Choice Glazes can be used with a variety of techniques. Additional information and instructions are available. Click on a link below to download the PDF. Adobe Acrobat Reader is required.

Great Glazes art a GREAT price

The ease in which i was able to use the glazes were tip top. I received the dry 25lb glazes in lovely white buckets and with easy of the directions made them up to test.

These glazes are great for layering. The brush on glazes look so much like a dipping glaze and you can do many effects with the different glazes. A great addition to any studio

Consistently awesome. Beautiful and easy to apply.
from Fort Wayne, IN
Love the layering possibilities with PC glazes.
from Elk Valley Canada
always works for me. I have a whole collection in different quantities and colour. The only warning I give is that the pre mixed pints and gallons can have a different effect and colour as the 25 lbs; do to missing the chemicals required for brushing on versus dipping.
Amaco is a breath of fresh air
I have recently switched over to Amaco. They are friendly and knowledgeable about their products. They experiment and play with their glazes and encourage their customers to do the same and to interact with each other about it. I find this is a refreshing contrast to another company which I shall not name. My pottery is completed beautifully by these glazes.

I love the way the different colors interact with each other and how much variation you receive with different brush strokes! Great product!
from Maryville, MO
Glaze quality is great, colors are beautiful. Fired to C6 and the glazes are so vibrant!
not only are amaco glazes great, but if you have a problem amaco will replace them, i turn all my glazes into dippable products, and they are great and easy to use
