Specialty Glazes add new dimension and texture to your students' art. Cobblestone, Sculpting Medium and Snowfall are easy to use and can be used in a variety of ways to create different effects for your students.
Sculpting Medium is a dimension "glaze" that produces a white, raised surface that can be brushed on or applied with a sponge. Sculpting Medium allows students to create precise, crisp designs and finely detailed textures by using utensils, paper cut-out patterns, and other tools. Layer Glazes over Sculpting Medium by applying 2-3 coats of Stroke & Coat for a raised, colorful design.
Cobblestone Glazes create a textured “cobbled” surface when fired. Apply over another glaze and during the firing process, a shattered pattern of raised, irregular chips will emerge. The underlying glaze will appear in the cracks. Apply one coat of Stroke & Coat over Cobblestone glazes for colorful textural effects or use it to replicate skin patterns and textures of reptiles and spotted animals.
Snowfall is a dimensional glaze that creates a white, textured surface. It is a non-moving glaze and, as such, application methods (brushing, detailer bottle/slip trailer) have an impact on the fired result. 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.
We pulled together a variety of projects for you to try with several application approaches.
