Amethyst Velvet Underglaze is a deep grape color that is vivid at cone 05, darkens at cone 5, and becomes a deep violet that begins to fade slightly at cone 10. A clear glaze deepens the color of the underglaze significantly at any temperature.
Saturated color, dependability, and versatility make Velvets as popular for professionals as they are for children. Velvets fire true-to-color as a Cone 05/06 underglaze or fired to Cone 6. Some colours remain true as high as Cone 10.
Amaco Velvet Underglazes an be easily applied to wet clay, greenware, or mature Cone 04 bisque (1971F / 1077C).
Try two finish possibilities: When left unglazed these colours have the rich textural appearance of velvet; when covered with AMACO Clear Transparent Matte or Clear Gloss they intensify in color.
