Firing Range: 999-1060c (Cone 06-04)
Chrysanthos Crackle Glazes are available as a clear for application over plain earthenware bisque or bisque that has been first decorated with Underglazes, One Strokes or Caf Colours. Or may alternatively be used as a coloured crackle glaze applied directly to unpainted earthenware bisque.
Generally, to obtain optimum results, 2 – 3 coats of Crackle Glaze should be applied using a well-loaded glaze mop brush. Ensure each coat is dry before applying subsequent coats at right angles to each other. For the best results, the Crackle Glazes should be fired to between Cone 06 (999c) and Cone 04 (1060c) on earthenware bisque that has been previously fired to between Cone 04 (1060c) and Cone 03 (1101c).
Ceramic ware that has been coated with Crackle Glazes should not be used for the storage of food and beverages. Some of the Crackle Glazes may also contain copper therefore these have a caution/harmful label.
