The Texas Two-Step Oilspots are a specialized series that use pairs of glazes to create unique effects. Anywhere that one of the five overcoats is laid on top of Licorice, Coffee Bean, or Brick Red, a stunning spotted pattern will appear during firing. Thicker applications lead to bigger spots. Try using wax resist after the first layer to create negative space designs.

The Mottled Series are designed to produce beautiful variegated colors with ease. Simple to apply and suitable for all types of ware, these colors are stunning on their own or combined with other glazes. They may appear thick in the jar and should be applied thick.

Satin glazes have a soft, opaque surface that feels smooth to the touch. Durable, bright, and reliable, they are the perfect series for any functional potter seeking a contrast from more typical gloss glazes. They are not runny, are easy to use, and look great with the Archie's series.

Our Matt glazes are a favorite series for sculptors everywhere. They provide a strong color tone and nice variety without a glossy finish. They are very stable and reliable, almost never running or behaving unexpectedly.
Perfect for potters looking for something unusual, our Crawl glazes have a tree-bark surface that's rough and dry to the touch. To achieve the crawling effect, they must be applied very thick, until the dry surface of the glaze cracks before firing. They can also be used over underglazes.

The Archie's Series can be challenging to use, but rewards your skill with some of the most beautiful glazes available. They flow and interact with other colors dramatically, creating fantastic finishes unlike anything else possible in an electric kiln. They are also strongly affected by slow-cooling.
May not fit all clay bodies. Test for shivering on your clay.
Store in a warm place. Crystals may form in liquid glaze if kept below 65 F

Coyote Underglazes are the only commercially available underglazes specially designed to be fired at cone 5-6. The colors can be mixed, and stay true and stable up to cone 10 in oxidation. They are always bold and striking, and are suited to functional ware when covered in Coyote Gloss Clear and fired to cone 6. They can be used on either greenware or bisque.

Dry Glazes Information and Mixing Instructions
Coyote Glazes are available dry for your convenience, in 5, 10, or 25 lbs. bags. Dry glazes contain the same ingredients as the wet glazes (minus the water) and can be used to brush, pour, dip, or spray.
5 Lbs. of dry glaze needs approximately half a gallon of water (every glaze is different, check the label) and will yield about three quarts of glaze.
10 Lbs. of dry glaze needs approximately one gallon of water and will yield about a gallon and a half of glaze.
25 Lbs. of dry glaze needs approximately two and a half gallons of water and will yield between three and four gallons of glaze.
When mixed with water, Coyote dry glazes are suitable for brushing, pouring or dipping, and do not require the addition of any suspension or brushing ingredients; if they need it, it's already in there.

Tips and Troubleshooting
Because most of our dry glazes include CMC and bentonite they may take a little longer to dry than you are used to with dipping glazes, but they dip very well, stay suspended in the bucket and can also used for brushing. At Coyote Clay School & Studios we dip everything, with excellent results.
Don't be tempted to add more water than is suggested on the label without testing! Every glaze is different, and each label has a suggested water content for that glaze. Some of our glazes will be quite thick when mixed according to the instructions on the label. Glazes that work best with a thicker application will be thicker in the bucket, and glazes that work well with a thinner application will be thinner.
Some of our glazes, especially the Mottled Glaze series, gel when left undisturbed. Mix them vigorously and they will thin out with no additional water. We highly recommend a drill with a mixing attachment for mixing glazes.
There are a lot of variables in how much glaze ends up on a dipped piece, so mix up your glaze, then dip and fire a test piece! You may find that you prefer your glaze a little thicker or thinner than we do. By keeping accurate records of how much water you use, you can reproduce your preferred glaze thickness well.
Because hydrometers are misleading when measuring thick materials, here at Coyote we determine specific gravity by weighing a particular volume of glaze. If you want to reproduce exactly the consistency of our liquid glazes as we sell them, you will need a 500 milliliter flask and an accurate scale.
To measure the specific gravity of a glaze: Tare (subtract) the weight of your flask from the scale. Fill the flask exactly to the 500 ml mark with glaze and weigh it. If your glaze is heavier than the target weight, add water and re-weigh.
Enduro-Color Glazes are designed for durability. They are perfect for liner glazes, standing up against fork and knife marking, dishwashers, and tomato stains. Enduro-Colors resist acid, chipping, crazing, scratching, staining, and all other hard use factors.

Frank's Colored Celadons are a beautiful series of translucent glazes. Because they can be seen through, they are perfect for work with fine details or carving, or as an alternative to clear for ware with underglaze. They do not run and look great on their own or combined with other glazes.
Crystalline Slow Cool Glazes are a great way to add exciting new details to your work. They are less runny than traditional crystal glazes, removing the need for a drip tray, and can be fired with other, non-crystal glazes. They do still run, so take care with your application!
