Java Bean is a Stroke & Coat® glaze, an extremely versatile product ideal for studio, classroom, potter, or fine artist. It can be applied on wet clay, earthenware bisque or stoneware bisque, fired from cone 06 to cone 10, in oxidation or reduction, and used in every decorative way imaginable.
Cone 06: Java Bean is a heavily pigmented, viscous glaze that can be used for brush strokes or opaque coverage. See image shown of chip fired to cone 06.
Cone 6: Opaque. Color lightens.
- One coat will create a translucent finish with subsequent coats adding opacity. Apply 2 to 3 coats for full opacity and all over coverage. Let glaze dry between coats.
- Glaze fires to a gloss finish without clear glaze, but a clear glaze can be added.
- Leave an area of your unfired piece unglazed, such as the back or bottom, to allow for out-gassing of the clay during the single-firing process.
- Formulated to mature at cone 06/05, most Stroke & Coat® glazes will maintain their color at higher temperatures. Their performance at cone 6 is noted on each individual product label with any changes.
- Test glaze prior to use.
