Chrysanthos Superior Glazes add colour and gloss to ceramic ware in a single step.
This is a LEAD FREE Glaze Range, with opacity of finish varying from colour to colour.
Tuscany Blue is opaque in coverage.
They provide a beautiful and practical means of giving solid colour coverage to broad areas or for highlighting decorative or incised ware.
Superior Glazes are suitable for use in controlled glaze effects, for majolica techniques and are overglaze compatible. They may be sprayed and thinned with clean water if necessary to improve glaze flow.
Superior Glazes are for application to earthenware bisque and when fired correctly will seal and protect the ceramic ware from moisture and discolouration caused by contact with food and liquids.
- Low fire glossy non toxic coloured glazes
- Firing range is cone 07 (984oC) to cone 03 (1,101oC)
- 2 to 3 coats application to earthenware bisque
- All colours are fully intermixable
Superior Glazes are specifically formulated for application onto low fire earthenware clay that has been bisque fired between cone 04 (1,060°C) and cone 03 (1,101°C) then gloss fired to between cone 07 (984°C) and cone 03 (1,101°C).
Depending on the firing temperature two or three full coats required to achieve the best results. These are carefully applied at right angles to one another (ie. crosshatched), allowing each to dry in-between. A soft glazing brush should be used in order to minimise streaking. Besides brushing, Superior Glazes may also be sponged.
