Cobblestones 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. To create colored Cobblestones, brush Stroke & Coat® glaze of choice over the white Cobblestone and fire. Application thickness, drying time before firing, firing atmosphere and temperature can all affect the fired results you obtain. Cobblestones may be fired to cone 6 to add a unique look to mid-range fire designs. Read more about Cobblestone here.
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. Read more about Snowfall here.
Mayco's Flux is a mid-range glaze that was developed to be used in combination with other mid-range glazes to produce flowing effects. Mayco Flux interacts with other glazes to create movement, bringing about "hidden" colors and visual texture. The order in which you apply Mayco Flux - above or beneath another glaze - impacts the fired result. Designed to fire to cone 5/6, but can be fired to cone 9/10 (movement will be more pronounced at higher temperatures). Variables that influence movement include the fluidity of the companion glaze, application methods, thickness and orientation of application, number of coats, firing temperature and program. To prevent glaze run-off, avoid applying Flux to the bottom third of your ware. Read more about Flux here.
