|Cone 05.These special effects glazes imitate the Artist/Potters favorites. They are Cone 05 oxidation glazes that look like high fired reduction stoneware. Effects like Tommoku, Rutile, Oil Spot, and other reduction surfaces are achieved without the cost or trouble of high fire reduction. They can be fired over any AMACO earthenware clay, however they look best over dark or red firing clay like AMACOs 67-M. The color in the clay will partially show through the texture and add another color dimension to the glaze. These glazes will look completely different depending on the clay they are applied on.
AMACO Artists Choice glazes are available in liquid form in pint jars.
Apply over a mature Cone 04 bisque. Better results are achieved when red clay is fired one or more cones higher than the glaze firing.
For glazes A-24 Exotic Blue and A-40 Seafoam Green glaze fire slowly and add a 20 minutes hold at the end of the firing. The other glazes in the series will work well whether they are fired fast or slow.
