One of the Stoneware classic glazes, which offer depth, sophistication and reliability to artists working from mid-range to high-fire temperatures.

Opal glazes are beautiful glazes for dinnerware due to its glossy, smooth finish. Great on textures.  The choice of clay body, thickness of glaze application, firing process and temperature will affect the fired finish.

Cone 5/6 to 10.


General Appearance

Cone 6:  Blue Opal is a medium blue semi-transparent to fully opaque gloss glaze. Thinner applications create a transparent blue haze; thicker coatings produce an opaque finish. Surface textures can cause the glaze to collect and produce streaks of greyish blue.

Cone 10:  Becomes more transparent. Can produce red mottling in a heavy reduction.

Tips:

  • Light applications on brown and buff bodies will produce a transparent green-blue gloss finish.
  • Thinner application will provide a glossy transparent finish. Thicker application will provide light blue floating.
  • Surface decoration will be visible under the glaze, but if you apply the glaze thick, it could blur your image.
  • Always test prior to use.
