pretty solid glazes
By casey the tile maker
Comments about Blick Essentials Gloss Glaze:
i have gone through two other brands for glazes and was not at all happy, so i gave blick a try, figuring why not. they went on nicely, solidly and fired up pretty well. they are translucent and very glossy, so yeah, you don't need to coat a clear gloss to that that super glossy glaze. i will say the seafoam was the most disappointing of the colours, washy, but that black is super black! the downside, whomever did the packing of the product should be fired, it was pathetic and three of my jars had cracked lids. so, not happy about that at all.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I use these glazes for both low and mid-range firing (cone 6) and they work great! My students love how they brush on and you can mix them like paint to get the colors you want. This is my go to glaze for kids projects!

My #1 go to glaze!
By Connie Carter
from North Dakota
What an amazing product for the price! I am absolutely amazed by the Blick glazes. Usually about half the price of the competition, and by far the best value! I always cover with three heavy coats and then handpainted intricate designs or detail work. I have never had any slipping, and the colors are always true. Consistency is great and easy to brush. Definitely requires three coats for that professional look, but at such an amazing price it makes Blick's glaze my #1 go to glaze.

Wonderful glaze for kids and adults
By Lyn the Extraordinary Education Director
from Athens Ohio
I use this low fire glaze personally and in the classroom. It is thicker than some other low fire gloss glazes, which makes it easier for children to use as they don't necessarily need several coats. it spreads nicely and the colors mix in predictable ways like paint. IE, red plus yellow you get orange. The variety of colors are pretty fabulous and it is very reasonably priced. I have even mixed it with other brands and so far, it has always turned out beautifully. I highly recommend this product for everyone, but especially for the elementary, middle or High school classroom!
Students love the freedom

My students love being able to mix the Essentials colors to get the color of glaze that they want. I like not having to buy a large number of glazes to give my students color options.
Glaze that will AMAZE
from Chicago Heights, Illiinois
I ordered the Dick Blick Essentials glazes and I'm so glad I did. They are economical, cover well and the colors are vibrant! I will keep them on my list for pure color glazes.
Last batch of Black ruined my work!
from Penrose, CO
The last batch of Black that I ordered (3) bottles ruined 3 of my pieces... I've been using the DB black for over a year with great results until this last batch. Hard to explain but with 3 coats it is still separating and leaving hairline streaks of bare clay like it's not adhering to the clay. I have changed nothing else, still same firing schedule... My other glazes are fine. After ruining 3 pieces there will be no more testing of my remaining bottles... Really sucks when you put so much work into a piece...
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that you had a discouraging experience with our glazes. From the picture you provided, it seems that the glaze is "crawling," which can happen when the glaze is applied too thickly or dries too slowly. However, please know that we always stand behind our products, and a member of our Customer Care Team will be working with you to resolve this.
