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.

First time using AMACO premixed glazes and I am extremely happy with how they perform. They go on easily and the colours are true to the samples. I am looking forward to combining colours for more exciting results. Prices were reasonable and free shipping is awesome!

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
