Mayco Jungle Gems and Crystalites have merged, creating the largest, most stunning crystal glaze assortment available. The glaze lines share similar chemistry, common glaze applications, and perform alike. Merging these lines simplifies the choice for artists and provides endless creative options. The former Crystalite glazes will retain their names but will be part of the Jungle Gems product line.
Jungle Gems Crystal Glazes contain small pieces of glass frit that transform into splashes of color and patterns when fired, demonstrating the magic of the kiln. These miraculous glazes can be used alone for overall dramatic effects or be combined with other glazes, such as Mayco Stroke & Coat, to add visual interest. Create your own unique glazes by layering different crystal glazes, as the crystals will burst through the glaze surfaces.
Jungle Gems Crystal Glazes are available in pint bottles (16 oz or 473 ml). They are formulated to mature at cone 06/05, but many can be fired to higher temperatures. Firing the glazes vertically or flat will affect the final look, as these glazes will move during firing, affecting the flow of the crystals. The mid-range (cone 6) performance of each glaze can be found on the individual color label or on Mayco's website. Higher heat work will increase the movement, which means the lower portion of the ware should not be glazed completely.
Prior to use, shake well and mix any crystals that may have settled in the jar. For optimum performance, apply three coats of glaze, allowing each to dry between coats. Bursts of color will occur wherever the glass frit appears. If desired, the crystals can be moved around to affect the final look. A fan brush is helpful when applying these glazes.
Caution — Jungle Gems Crystal Glazes are lead-free but are not recommended for use on food containers due to the surface characteristics. The crystals can create crevices and cracks in the glaze surface that will allow moisture into the ceramic ware during the cleaning process, potentially causing the ware to crack. Not dinnerware-safe. Do not spray-apply.
Note — Store pint jars upside-down with the lid securely affixed to assist with mixing crystals. To make your Jungle Gems Crystal Glazes last longer, apply the base coat in a complementary Blick Essentials Gloss Glaze color.
