    SECTION 1: PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

    Classic Crackles is a series of non-toxic crackle glazes in a subtle color palette appropriate for today’s home décor. Stylish and sophisticated, Classic Crackles are ideal on items such as vases, candleholders and more.

    Product Features, Benefts, and Application Recommendations:

    • Apply three even solid coats to properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque using any soft fan or glaze brush.
    • Fire Classic Crackles to shelf cone 06. Allow the pieces ample room in the kiln for air circulation during firing. These glazes can also be high fired up to shelf cone 6 with various color shifts; refer to the High Fire Guide.
    • To accentuate the crackle pattern, antique the fired piece with a non-fired acrylic stain or mineral spirit stain. Simply apply a coat of the desired color to the fired piece and wipe off with a soft cloth. The color will fill in the cracks and make the crackle pattern stand out.

    Special Notes:

    • Sometimes the crackle pattern will be developed when the kiln is cool enough to open. Other pieces may need to sit out of the kiln for a period of time before the crackle pattern develops.
    • Remove pieces from the kiln with a coffee filter or clean rag placed over your hand. The oils in your hand can fill the cracks and prevent the antiquing colors from filling in the cracks.
    • Pieces don’t always need to be antiqued with black. You have an endless selection of colors that can be used to antique. If you prefer to use a fired product, use One Strokes on the fired crackled piece and then refire to shelf cone 06.
    • If you prefer non-fired products, you can use an acrylic, mineral spirit stain or even shoe polish or India ink to stain the cracks.
    • Classic Crackles are non-toxic but are not recommended for food surfaces. Bacteria could possibly become trapped in the exposed bisque between the cracks, making it inappropriate for surfaces that hold food.
    • Crackle glazes place stress on the ware during firing. To prevent containers such as vases from splitting or cracking apart, make sure to use a non-toxic glaze to coat the remainder of the inside of the vase (such as Series 2000) to further reduce stress on the piece.
    • You can use Stroke & Coat® or One Strokes to create beautiful designs under Classic Crackles . Create the design with Stroke & Coat on properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Use only 1-2 coats of Stroke & Coat® or the crackle will not develop properly. Allow to dry and then apply three solid even coats of Classic Crackle. Allow to dry and fire to shelf cone 06.
    • When using One Strokes, apply your design on greenware and fire to shelf cone 04. Then apply three solid even coats of Classic Crackle. Allow to dry and fire to shelf cone 06.
    • Gold and Mother of Pearl can be used as a finishing touch on your Classic Crackle piece. Decals also work well over Classic Crackle glazes.

    SECTION 2: PRODUCT APPLICATION VARIATIONS AND FAQ’S

    Will the piece crackle as soon as I remove it from the kiln?
    Sometimes the crackle pattern does not develop immediately when the kiln is cool enough to open. Other pieces may need to sit out of the kiln for a period of time before the crackle pattern develops. It is best to remove the piece from the kiln with a coffee filter or clean rag placed over your hand. The oils in your hand can fill the cracks and prevent the antiquing color from filling in the cracks.

    My Classic Crackles piece cracked in half during firing. What happened?
    Crackle glazes place stress on the ware during firing. To prevent container from splitting or cracking apart, be sure to use a non-toxic gloss glaze on the inside. Allow ample room between pieces in the kiln for air circulation.

    Are Classic Crackles food-safe?
    Although Classic Crackles are non-toxic and thus food safe when fired properly according to FDA standards, they may not be practical for food containers due to surface characteristics.

    Can I create a pattern under the crackle?
    You can use Stroke & Coat® or One Strokes to create beautiful designs under Classic Crackles. Create your design with Stroke & Coat on properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Use only 1-2 coats of Stroke & Coat® or the crackle will not develop properly. Allow the Stroke & Coat® to dry and apply three coats of Classic Crackles. Allow to dry and properly fire to shelf cone 06. When using One Strokes, apply your design on greenware and properly fire to shelf cone 04. Apply three coats of Classic Crackles, allow to dry and properly fire to shelf cone 06.

    Are Classic Crackles overglaze compatible?
    Gold and Mother of Pearl can be used as a finishing touch on your Classic Crackles piece. Decals also work well over Classic Crackles glazes. Test first.
