5 lbs. Emerald Glaze Wash Cone 6-10
Description: Emerald has a nice, translucent gloss and is great for carving. When firing to Cone 6 you can apply this like a normal glaze (like in the images). When firing this glaze higher just apply it AS AN Accent Mist into other Matt Glazes. This glaze works in oxidation and reduction (as an accent wash at higher temperatures).This glaze is a food safe glaze as long as it doesn't craze on your clay body. Coleman Porcelain can be fired to cone 6 oxidation and this glaze fits it well. This is a good glaze to use as a liner glaze on areas that come into contact with food or beverages.
Mixing: 5 lbs. of dry glaze equals approximately 1 gallon of liquid glaze. Add water and screen thru an 80 mesh screen twice. Add water to a hydrometer reading of about 42-45.
Application: This glaze can be dipped or sprayed. And, (like with any glaze or slip) you can add about a tsp full of liquid glycerin to about 2 oz of glaze so you can brush it on easily. This is what the commercial glaze companies add to their tiny jars of glazes. I like to use the larger sized, weekly pill cases for our glazes with glycerin. (like you might do with watercolors).
Firing: Cone 6 Oxidation.

Note 1: Remember to run a few tests before applying any unfamiliar glaze to lots of work. Take notes. Find the correct application for your work with the way your kiln is being fired.
