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.

Love these glazes
from Cape Cod, MA
I just saw the results of using these glazes on several pieces I made, and these glazes are wonderful, by themselves or layered. I also appreciate the helpful tips given on the Amaco website, as far as layering effects of using different combinations, and also how much each color flows.
Great color saturation

These are really great glazes to work with. We only brush them on but I have seen results with the dipping and spraying and they are wonderful.
Cannot beat Amaco glazes!
By Muddy Girl
from The coast of Maine
The best, most consistent glazes for laying with beautiful results. Blick's coupons and good prices make them my choice for those times when I am looking for something special to finish off my pieces.
Love my Amaco PC glazes!
I've only been glazing for a year, but even the pros in my clay club are amazed at some of the color combinations I've done with these glazes. Blick has the best prices I have found and you can not beat their shipping and service! Wish I lived near a store, I would be a frequent shopper!
First time using Blick.
By The Pottery Chest
from Simi Valley, CA
As a ceramic artist, I have ordered products on-line, but this is the first time using Blick. Everything was delivered in good condition and although there was a delay for a back order, the products were delivered promptly. At the time of ordering, Blick had the best prices for both the products I purchased and shipping cost, but what stood out was receiving constant communication about the status of my order. I will still shop around for the best prices, but Blick is now my first stop.

Put on another layer
If you think you have layered it thick put another layer on. They are not joking when they say this glaze needs to float. If you want beautiful colors follow the directions - if you apply lightly you'll get muddy colors.
