Mayco AC310-4 Silk Screen Medium 4oz


For creating silkscreen design on clay or bisque: Mix four parts Underglaze or Stroke & Coat®   (1″ wide dollop of glaze) to one part Silkscreen Medium (pinch). Using a palette knife, thoroughly mix glaze and silkscreen medium on a flat surface until the mixture is smooth and contains no lumps. Add small amounts of medium until mixture resembles a thick paste, similar to the consistency of peanut butter. Push material through designer silkscreen with a squeegee or finger. Can be used with low fire and mid-range glazes.

Color: the base firing properties of the glaze used to create the ceramic paste remain unchanged: cone 06, cone 6 glazes perform just as they would in a non-paste state.  For the deepest color we recommend using Stroke & Coat®, Designer Liner or Mayco Underglaze – products that contain high pigment content. Darker colors will produce deeper color in the fired result. Use of other color lines and/or light pigment colors (pinks, tans, light yellow, etc.) may yield less prominent results.

Viscosity: if a paste is too thin your design may bleed.  As a general rule: the more detailed the screen design the thicker the paste.  For patterns, such as Chevrons and Stripes, you may find a thinner pastes works best.

Prepare the Color Paste: Dispense a 1” wide dollop of glaze onto a plate or palette. Sprinkle a pinch of AC-310 Silk Screen Medium over the glaze and allow to sit for 10-15 seconds. Mix together using a palette knife until the mixture is smooth and contains no lumps. If mixture is still too thin, sparingly add a bit more Silk Screen Medium to thicken; if mixture is too thick add a small amount of glaze. Remix and adjust as needed. The final consistency should be similar to a smooth peanut butter.
