Cone 6: Nimbus is a glossy, opaque, variegated blue glaze that breaks over texture and has an iridescent sheen. Blue micro-crystalization may develop.
Cone 10: Glaze brightens to a variegated cyan that breaks green/brown over texture.
TIP: This glaze is highly fluid at 3 coats. Anticipate glaze movement with receded application on vertical surfaces to prevent unwanted running. Prone to pinholes when fired on manganese clay bodies.
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.
