A highly versatile product which can be used as a majolica color on top of a white base glaze, as an underglaze color underneath a clear glaze, or as a glaze on its own.

>For majolica technique:  First apply 2 or 3 coats of a base white glaze over the entire piece. After the white glaze has thoroughly dried, decorate with the majolica colors.>One coat gives you the traditional majolica look, in which some of the base white shows through the color. For opaque coverage, 2 coats of color is required.

For use as an underglaze:  Use 1 coat – semi-transparent, 2 coats - semi-opaque, 3 coats- opaque.  Then cover the entire piece with clear glaze (i.e. 700 Clear for cone 06/04 firings or 1100 Clear for cone 4/6 firings).

As a glaze on its own over a wide temperature range from cone 06 to cone 6:  It will fully vitrify at cone 06, but the surface will not be quite as shiny as Spectrum's 700 series glazes. At cone 6 most of the colors will show little color change, except the pinks and purples, which are not quite as temperature stable. Using a zinc-free clear glaze will improve results at stoneware temperatures.

All of the majolica colors are lead-free, dinnerware safe and A/P non-toxic.
