Cone 6: Mirror Black creates a highly reflective, metallic black gloss finish. On some vertical surfaces and around surface textures, minor matte effects can be seen; all other applications result in the formation of a black, metallic mirror.
Cone 10: Finish flattens. Color remains. Increased movement.
Tip: This glaze WILL move. Take care when using on vertical pieces – reduce glaze thickness towards the bottom third to minimize run-off.
Note: Not recommended for dinnerware due to surface durability.
Stoneware classic glazes offer the depth, sophistication and reliability to artists working from mid-range to high-fire temperatures. Many glazes will break over textures, revealing secondary colors and shades. Used alone, stoneware glazes produce beautiful color variations. One coat will allow the clay body to show through the glaze and two to three coats deeper the color. The choice of clay body, thickness of glaze application, firing process and temperature will affect the fired finish.
