Characteristics

  • Metallic Glazes crate a variety of interesting finishes.
  • Glaze thickness, clay body and firing can influence results.
  • Due to the metal-like nature of the glazes they are great for use as a Raku glaze.
  • Metallic Glazes can be combined with other Duncan glazes to create unique effects.

Application

  • Apply 3-4 flowing coats to witness cone 04 bisque.  Thin with water if needed.

Firing

  • Metallic glazes fire to witness cone 04 (excluding SY1024 which fires to cone 06).
  • Fire Metallic Glaze alone and do not fire with greenware (gases in the greenware will cause imperfections to the glaze).

These glazes will be brought into stock on a as needed "special order" basis.  Therefore, if you are interested in supplies, please email sales@countrylovecrafts.co.uk.
