The glaze crystals can be moved around with a paintbrush, which will affect where the different coloured spots will appear.

These foodsafe glazes are perfect for unique ceramic vessels and dishes, and could be perfect for an interesting surface for sculptural ceramic work. All the unique beauty of crystalline glazes without the complicated firing process.
