Mayco Mother of Pearl - 1/2 fl.oz.

8 items left

Mother-of-Pearl is a translucent overglaze with a lustrous iridescence. 1/2 oz. jar.


This is a metallic compound that is applied as a final finish over fired glazes that are compatible with overglazes. 

Mother of Pearl is a translucent overglaze with a lustrous iridescence and creates an iridescent look when properly applied and fired.

Its appearance is determined by the glaze that the lustre is applied over (gloss glaze, shiny lustre, matte glaze, dull lustre). For ease of application, each brush-on overglaze is tinted with its own special colour. Mother-of-Pearl has a blue tint.

Check out the Duncan/Mayco Overglaze Guide HERE for more info

How To Use:

Note: This product is only nontoxic after firing. Work in a well-ventilated area when applying to your piece.

  1. Do not stir or shake.
  2. Place a small amount of Mother of Pearl on a glazed palette:
  3. For a swirled look, swirl on one coat, overlapping strokes.
  4. For a smooth look, brush on all strokes in the same direction.
  5. Use a soft brush like a Deerfoot Stippler that has been designated for Mother-of-Pearl.
  6. Correct application should produce a light blue tint over applied area. A very dark blue means the Mother of Pearl is applied too heavily.
  7. Allow to dry.
  8. Stilt and fire to cone 020.
  9. Clean brush in Essence and let dry.
