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.
For best results, follow these special application instructions for the following PC series glazes. PC-64 is not dinnerware safe.
PC-20 — Blue Rutile needs to be applied heavily. Apply at least four coats. It will flow just a little and create beautiful effects.
PC-50 — 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.
PC-60 — 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.
