Application Recommendations

Texture You Can See & Feel

Usage Variations & FAQs

Q: What recommendations do you have for using Snowfall with copper-based green glazes?

A: SG-302 Snowfall will boil when applied on top of FN-217 Evergreen Fire, FN-219 Lustre Green and FN-218 Green Sapphire due to the copper pigment. The fired Snowfall may also become tinted ("bluing") as the copper leaches into the glaze.

For successful results using Snowfall with one of these glazes do the following:

  1. Apply 2-3 coats of any of the copper green glazes leaving the area for the SG-302 Snowfall with out the green glaze and butt the SG-202 Snowfall up to the glaze.
  2. Apply 2-3 coats of any of the copper green glazes leaving thea area for the SC-302 Snowfall with out the green glaze. In the unglazed area apply 1 coat of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing Glaze to the unglazed area, then apply SB-302 Snowfall over the S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing Glaze.

Q: Your label states that Snowfall is "Food Safe", yet you also include the statement "May not be suitable for food surfaces due to surface characteristics"?

A: Food Safety is determined by standards established by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  ASTM method C-738 and C-927-80 are "leach tests"; the tests involve measuring the chemical composition of an acidic food before exposure to a glazed surface and the chemical composition after a several days.  If the levels of glaze materials found in the food are below the established limits, the glaze can be marketed as "Food Safe."

Glazes that create dimensional surfaces also create crevices and nooks that can trap food - even after washing.  This food can develop bacterial growth and cause health issues. Our policy is to discourage the use of textural glazes on ware that is intended for food usage even though the glaze has met all food safety criteria.

Q: Can Snowfall be tinted?

A: Color SG-302 Snowfall by applying 1 coat of your favorite Stroke & Coat over the Snowfall. Clear Brushing or Clear Dipping Glazes can also be applied over Snowfall.
