One of the Stoneware crystal glazes, designed to expand upon the surface with dazzling bursts of color. Fired results will vary based on ware’s orientation.
Cone 5/6 to cone 10.
General Appearance of Robin's Egg
Cone 6: Sea Salt is a white matte glaze that contains a sandy-brown crystal. As the crystal melts, brownish-tan small blooms appear in the glaze, producing a foamy, textured fired finish.
Cone 10: Base glaze turns pale lavender/gray. Crystals are mint green.
- The base glaze is Alabaster (GL-16SW106). For a lighter crystal effect, try applying two coats of Alabaster with a third coat of Sea Salt.
- Crystals will settle to the bottom of the jar and will need a good mixing prior to initial use. Re-stir between each coat.
- Avoid placing crystals near the bottom third of a vertical piece as they may cause additional movement during firing. Crystals will flow more than the base glaze.
- While the glaze is wet, use a fan brush to redistribute the crystals to achieve balanced coverage.
- Over-application or heavy deposition of the crystals can cause pinholing or running.
- When storing a crystal glaze, you may consider storing upside down to facilitate crystal dispersion on the next use.
- Always test prior to use.
