Chrysanthos Superior Glaze Clear
Reliable lead free clear glaze.
Earthenware Clear: 999-1101c (Cone 06-03)
The Chrysanthos Superior Clear Glaze can be used on earthenware bisque that has first been decorated with one of Underglazes, One Strokes or Cafe Colours. Once fired correctly, the Superior Clear Glaze will protect the ware from moisture and discolouration caused by contact with food and liquids.
The coloured appearance of the glaze is intended to assist application by highlighting glazed areas. Depending on the firing temperature two or three full coats are required to achieve the best results. The coats should be carefully applied at right angles to one another (ie. crosshatched), allowing each coat to dry. A soft glazing brush should be used in order to minimise streaking. Besides brushing, the glaze may be sponged.
The Superior Clear Glaze also may be sprayed and thinned with clean water if necessary to improve glaze flow.
The Superior Clear has been specifically formulated for Earthenware Clay that has been bisque fired between Cone 04 (1060c) and Cone 03 (1101c) then gloss fired to between Cone 07 (984c) and Cone 03 (1101c).
