Amaco Test Tile Tuesday
Amaco Test Tile Tuesday
This week, we are bringing you some tiles on which we fired the low-fire Crystaltex glazes (typically a cone 05 colorful spotted glaze series) all the way up to CONE 3. The effect is this lovely, fluid mutlicolor glaze that changes depending on which glaze you choose. How will they look at Cone 5? More fluid? Remember to always stilt your work or use soft brick when testing glazes outside of their firing range! Happy Testing! These CTL's in order from closest to furthest are CTL-9 Snapdragon, CTL-12 Mardi Gras, and CTL-71 Purple Blaze.
