Cone 6: Eggplant is an opaque, gloss purple glaze. Three coats will create a solid purple finish. Thinner applications may result in the development of blue-gray coloring. Blue-gray colors may also develop where the glaze breaks over and around surface textures.
Cone 10: Color changes to blue.
TIP: A light blue can form on top of Eggplant where it pools; surface textures also encourage the glaze to break blue. It is beautiful used in combination with other glazes.
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.
