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 10.
Cone 6: Shipwreck is an aquamarine gloss glaze that contains iron crystals. As the crystals melt, small iron specks appear. The glaze appears mysterious like an underwater footage.
Cone 10: Color darkens.
- Peacock (GL-16SW212) is the base glaze.
- For a lighter crystal effect, you may try applying two coats of Peacock with a third coat of Shipwreck.
- 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.
- When storing a crystal glaze, you may consider storing upside down to facilitate crystal dispersion on the next use.
- Always test prior to use.
