Lead-free Amaco Velvet Underglazes are opaque underglazes that have the appearance of velvet when left unglazed.
Velvets will become opaque after three coats. When glazed with transparent matte glaze they will assume a soft, satin finish. The colors will intensify when covered with a clear transparent gloss glaze, but will lose their matte surface quality.
Velvets fire true to color from the jar and may be intermixed with other colors. They may be brushed on mature fired bisque before applying a covering glaze. These underglazes are safe for spray application and are dinnerware safe when applied and fired under Amaco LG-10 Clear Glaze. Velvets tolerate a wide firing range.
