Love These Glazes!
Comments about Blick Essentials Gloss Glaze:
Great price and excellent low-fire glazes. My only complaint is when I apply a transparent gloss on top it tends to fade at cone 04. Other than that they work very well.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I would buy this product again
from Elk, WA
These glazes are great for students and the easy application is as advertised. However they are a bit thin and take 4 coats for best results while the label suggests three. I like how they can be mixed for additional colors. I bought the basics red, white, black, blue and green so combinations are endless. Fire to full cone 06 for best results.
I will buy these products AGAIN!!!

I recently just learned that Black carried ceramic glazes and I will be honest, I was hesitant at first because I am an AMACO fan for life. The Black glazes are great and very high quality!

Great value and quick turn around time when placing orders online.
Good Price, Ok Quality so far
By The Busy Bee
I'm still experimenting with some test fire with this glaze, and while the colors themselves are very good, I'm finding the glaze does not adsorb quickly into the low fire bisqueware, making it difficult for my students to get even coats. It does seem to absorb much more normally into the high fire bisque I am experimenting on. I've not run into this problem before, so we are still experimenting with it as the colors and price are great. Hoping for better results as we work more.I am thrilled with the whole ordering and delivery process, very easy and prompt. Thank you.

Terrific product! Great coverage and easy to use for the elementary age student. I have purchased many colors of the Blick Essentials Gloss Glaze and they all offer great coverage. Blick is a good value, too!

Great For the Elementary Classroom
By Art Allie
from Knoxville, TN
Every year I do an Empty Bowls Project with my entire elementary school, making around 550 ceramic bowls. I always struggle with choosing glaze for the bowls because of the cost. I have tried several glazes as well as underglazes and we always spend $300+ and the color is not the best quality. I decided to try Blick Glaze this year because of the inexpensive value. I was concerned about color but when the first group of bowls came out I was ecstatic with the vibrant colors and how well 1-2 coats covered. I will definitely continue to use this glaze for my Clay projects.

Yay Dick Blick!
from savannah, ga
I am a full-time studio potter and have used every major commercial brand glaze available. I thought I'd try Dick Blick's new liquid low-fire glazes because of the value. I honestly did not have high expectations. I am pleased to report that this glaze series is my new favorite! It paints on very smooth, none of the bottles I've purchased have any settling or chunks (a hug problem with other brands). It fires true to the glaze samples, even at cone 5 and the results are vibrant and opaque! I'd love to see an even wider selection of colors.

pretty solid glazes
By casey the tile maker
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.
Merchant response: Thank you for your review! We apologize for the cracked lids, and we're happy to help you with this. Please look for an email from one of our Customer Care Agents who will be following up to assist you.
