Copper Wash (Aerosol) Cone 6 - 10
PLEASE READ ALL OF THE INFORMATION WE PROVIDE FOR THE BEST RESULTS:
Description: Copper Wash is simply a copper accent glaze. We use this formula to mist/spray into other glazes. In Cone 10 reduction it adds copper-red flashing. All of our slips and glazes in Aerosol application contain a setting fixative. Once your work is dry it won't smudge on the way to the kiln. We test on Coleman Porcelain. This work is bisque fired to cone 08. Bisque firing to cone 04 is a very high temp and closes off the clay body. If you can lower your bisque temp to cone 06 your body will absorb glaze better. If you use porcelain - cone 08 is all you need for bisque.
Application Instructions: Spray apply. Treat it just like you're spraying paint. You need to shake it really well. And, sometimes you need to clear the nozzle. Not too close to the work. Start about 4 to 6 inches away and spray in horizontal passes as you turn the turn style. After one rotation pass let it dry. Then, do a second pass around. You might come in with a 3rd vertical pass? It might not need to be that thick. Be sure to test any unfamiliar slips, washes and glazes before applying to important work.
Application 2: We've put this wash into an Aerosol Container. We recommend a light mist into glazes as an accent. Be sure to test any unfamiliar slips or glazes before using them on important work.
Firing: Cone 6 Oxidation will be a greenglaze. Cone 10 is applied as a wash and sprayed lightly into other glazes. Goes copper red in cone 10 reduction. And, it goes green in oxidation. Cone 6 - 10 in 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.
