  • Amaco Opalescent Glazes 06

    Opalescent Glazes 06-05 from Amaco

    (O) Opalescent

    Although AMACO® Opalescent Glazes may be used on any nmclay clay, they develop their greatest opalescence and most interesting textures when applied over red burning red earthenware Red Clay No. RL6. The AMACO® Opalescent Glazes have a high gloss finish when fired. Best results are achieved with three or four applications of glaze. On textured ware, the glaze flows thin on relief and thick in incised areas, giving an added dimension on the surface.

    •Best over Red clay or colored Underglazes 

    •Break and Pool Over Texture
