Chrysanthos Low Sheen Glazes are a premium range of satin glazes designed to create a low sheen finish in an array of captivating colours.
Low Sheen Glaze may be used over underglaze for a muted effect.
Low Sheen Glazes are for application to earthenware bisque and when fired correctly will seal and protect the ceramic ware from moisture and discolouration.
Low Sheen Glazes are also fully intermixable.
To obtain optimum results, 2 – 3 thin coats of Low Sheen Glaze should be applied using a fan brush. Ensure each coat is dry before applying subsequent coats at right angles to one another (i.e.cross hatching). Water may be added if necessary to thin the glaze to prevent bubbling or other imperfections.
In the case of the Low Sheen Clear, only 2 thin coats should be applied.
For the best results, the Low Sheen 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). A slow firing is preferable to ensure that the glaze has time to smooth out and produce a smooth silky finish.
