Amaco Opalescent Glazes|
AMACO® Opalescent Glazes develop their greatest opalescence and most interesting textures when applied over red clays.
Most of the AMACO® Opalescent Glazes have a high gloss similar to mother-of-pearl. Best results are achieved with three or four applications of glaze.
On textured ware, the glaze flows thin on relief and thick in incised areas, giving an added dimension on the surface.
AMACO® Opalescent Glazes can be used very effectively in Raku firing. We suggest controlled experimentation with Opalescent glazes (for example O-42, O-23 at Cone 5, 2205°F, 1207°C).
When fired at this temperature on the inside of a stoneware bowl, the glaze flows to produce a variegated bottom and thins at the rim to expose more of the clay body.
AMACO® Opalescent Glazes can be used very effectively in Raku firing.
Brilliant effects are achieved by combining Opalescent glazes and Velvet Underglazes. George Debikey applied this technique in his creation of “Fish Bowl”. Colors used were Velvet Underglaze V-366 Teddy Bear Brown and Opalescent Glaze O-20 Bluebell.
