Dimensional Texturing

SG 501

Sculpting Medium is a dimension "glaze" that produces a white, raised surface.  A great use of Sculpting Medium is to add structured design elements to you work using stencils, lace and stamps.  Apply a stencil to your piece, brush Sculpting Medium over the stencil; let the Medium set up a bit and remove the stencil.It has the viscosity of condensed milk and it can be brushed on or applied with a sponge.  Sculpting Medium can be applied directly on bisque or ontop of an unfired glaze. The recommended application thickness is 1/16 to ⅛".  The fired finish can be coarse and have rough edges; a layer of clear glaze (or a colored glaze) will smooth these sharp edges.

Firing range is 05/06: it will not perform at higher temperatures.
