Cone 6: Cinnabar is a rich maroon-red gloss glaze that tends to develop a hazy purple float with heavier application.
Cone 10: Color darkens.
TIP: One to two coats will produce an opaque maroon-red; three+ coats will produce higher levels of purple float. You’ll produce beautiful color variations with Cinnabar without the glaze running off your ware during a cone 6 oxidation firing.
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.
