MCSW219-P Opal Lustre ^6 Pint
What are Micros? Micro's are short for microcrystalline which is a glaze that develops small crystallization from the the zinc and silica during the cooling process. Micros do not actually contain a glass crystal like our other stoneware crystal glazes, Rather, the effect is created by the glaze itself during the firing process. These glazes can be fired from cones 5-10, but the crystallization may not form at higher temperatures. The micros are not dinnerware safe due to surface durability. We recommend using micros on the outside of dinnerware, below the lip line or on decorative wares.


Cone 6 oxidation (larger image): Opal Lustre is a glossy, semi-opaque glaze that displays variegated shades of blues, greens, and purples. Breaks warm brown over texture.

Cone 10 reduction (smaller image): Color flattens, and warm undertones come through.

TIP: This glaze is semi-fluid at 3 coats. Additional coats or increased application thickness may result in movement. Can be used in oxidation or reduction firings. Results may vary. The choice of clay body, thickness of application, firing process, and temperature will greatly affect the fired results. Always test your application on your clay body in your kiln environment.
