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:  Pink Opal produces a desert rose pink that ranges from semi-translucent to fully opaque, depending on application thickness. Thin applications yield a clear glaze with hints of pink precipitate; heavier applications will create an opaque purple-pink gloss finish that can also form a whitish cast in select areas.

Cone 10:  Pink fades out entirely, leaving a transparent gloss with white pooling.

Tips:

  • Vertical pieces best allow the glaze to flow and create a semi-transparent, rose veil. Body textures and features will still be visible through the glaze.
  • Thinner application will provide a glossy transparent finish. Thicker application will provide light pink 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.
