5 lbs. Glaze OverColor Base (dry material)
Description: Glaze OverColors are our answer to having a vibrant, decorative glaze accent color sprayed, painted or slip-trailed over other glazes that won't shift at cone 10. This is re-formulated so it doesn't settle-out as much. When putting this into a slip-trail bottle, store them with some sort of nail (or a tac) into the top to keep the tip closed, and store the slip-trail bottle on it's side. It makes them so much easier to squeeze, shake, and mix them up in between applications.
Mixing: Add your favorite color stain to create your own color pallet! This helps to set your work apart from other people's work.
1) Once you've added your dry color stain to the dry glaze base.
2) Mix together with a spoon.
3) Add a little water at a time until your OverColor is at your desired consistency.
4) Mix with a little mixer of some sort.
5) Screen it through an 80 mesh bowl screen.
Note: If you've added too much water, let them settle for a few days and carefully pour the water off the top. Or, absorb the water off the top carefully with a clean towel.
Application: We've used these colors over Tom Coleman's Deco White and they work great. It's a great place to start. This OverColor can be sprayed, painted, slip-trailed and dipped. Always be sure to do a test on work that's not important when venturing out into different, unfamiliar glazes and techniques.
Images show what's possible with the OverColors. Some of them were mixed thinner and sprayed onto a plate that first has a base glaze. In this case, it's over Tom's Diamond Black technique. The red and green OverColor was thicker and applied as thick dots from a slip-trail bottle. We just ask you to create something that's uniquely yours when using these products and techniques.
