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 Midnight Rain

Cone 6:  A blue-green breaking gloss glaze that contains black crystals. As the crystals melt and move, a black oil-like streak is created in the glaze.

Cone 10:  Crystals melt and integrate into base glaze, darking the color. Increased movement.

Tips:

  • Blue Surf (GL-16SW100) is the base glaze.
  • 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.
  • For a lighter crystal effect, try applying two coats of Blue Surf(GL-16SW100) with a third coat of Midnight Rain.
  • Always test prior to use.

Dinnerware Safe.
