True Color Deco Glazes (Aerosol) Cone 10
Description: True Color Deco Glazes are glossy, semi-opaque glazes that have the best "True Color" on a whiter clay body. This glaze pallet works in a reduction gas kiln and an electric kiln fired to cone 10. They have a different color pallet in different kilns. Example: the Green Deco has a brighter, minty green in reduction. And, in an electric kiln it's more of a moss green. They also work well sprayed over our color slip series to enhance their color. Orange Deco over Orange slip, etc.
Note#1: Clean the foot of your work with a damp sponge or a green scrubby right away.
Note#2: We recommend a wetback spray booth for proper spraying safety. And, OSHA recommends wearing an NOSHA approved dust mask P-100 when spraying anything from an aerosol container. I love this mask! Available on Amazon for $7.99. I wear it for all of my mixing now instead of the N-95.
Note#3: Remember to clean your tip each time after use. You can turn the can upside down and spray it to clear it's spray tip (like spray paints). And, or, you can take the spray tip off and store them in a cup of water in between uses. This way they won't dry and clog. If you need extra tips you can find them online: Montana Spray Caps Gold Fat #6.
Please Read: Application Instructions: BISQUE TEMPERATURE IS IMPORTANT!! If you bisque your work to cone 04 it's way too hot and totally unnecessary. Clay companies told us this because they don't know any different. You want your bisque ware to be absorbent. If you spray any glaze or slips onto your bisque ware and it drips off and doesn't soak in - your bisque is fired too hot. Bisque fire porcelain to cone 08. And, Bmix/Stoneware to cone 06. If you have questions write me at firstname.lastname@example.org
1) Shake well.
2) The first time you press down on the spray nozzle pure propellent will discharge. Be sure to point this first discharge away from your work.
3) Then, begin spraying your work. Not too close to the work. Start about 4 to 6 inches away and spray in horizontal passes as you turn the turn style.
4) After two rotation sprays let it dry. Then, do two more passes around. Sometimes I'll do a few passes in a verticle motion for good coverage. I go as many as 8 passes around letting it dry as it needs to before going around again. Check your thickness with a pin tool.
Remember to test any unfamiliar slip or glaze on test work before applying to any important work. Everyone uses a different clay body, different kilns, and everyone fires differently. You'll want to fine tune everything to work with your unique circumstances.
Firing: Cone 10. In an electric kiln and in a gas reduction kiln.
