Known as ‘Art in a Jar”, our Crystal Glazes are easy to use while providing outstanding results. Delightful for kids of all ages, the Jungle Gems and Crystalites glazes enable students to achieve complex glazed surfaces with guaranteed results and minimal effort; one to two coats and you’re done! Mayco’s Jungle Gems and Crystalites Class Packs contain a collection of the most popular colors of our crystal-infused gloss glazes. Looking for a way to use Crystal Glazes more cost efficiently? Use two coats of Foundations and one coat of Crystal Glazes to get the same beautiful crystal effect.
To describe Jungle Gems and Crystalites glaze to a new group of students, explain that the glaze is simply powdered glass mixed with water. Like adding a kool-aid packet to water, the tiny glass particles visually dissolve, creating a milkshake consistency. The special thing about Jungle Gems is that not all the glass has been crushed into dust and mixed in. Some pieces of glass are chunky and heavy, settled in the bottom of the jar.
Get the oooohs and aaaahs right out of the kiln by using Jungle Gems and Crystalites glazes!
For an easy spring project, use terra cotta pots and crystal glazes! These projects have lots of room for customization, and students can take pride in this craft and turn it into a lovely Mother’s Day gift or teacher gift.
