Large View | Find Similar Items
AMACO® Velvets semi-translucent underglazes offer two finish possibilities. When left unglazed they have the appearance of velour or velvet. They will intensify in color when covered with AMACO® Clear Transparent or Gloss glaze. All the Velvets are very rich colors and can be used for an all over coverage similar to an opaque underglaze. They fire true to color as applied from the jar and may be intermixed to create a palette of hundreds of colors. The colors may be brushed (1) on greenware which is to be bisque fired before applying a coverage glaze or (2) on a mature Cone 04 (1971° F, 1077° C) bisque, then a covering glaze applied. For opaque coverage by brushing, the consistency of the color in the jar is correct. Velvets tolerate a wide firing range with recommended firing temperature being that of the clay used. Velvets were developed to be used without a glaze cover. They should not be used on surfaces which come into contact with food or drink. AMACO® glazes LG-9, LG-10, F-10, DC-10 and HF-9 are recommended as clear glazes over velvets. For scultural and non-dinnerware items.
Set of twelve 2-oz. jars. Colors: yellow, medium blue, leaf green, chocolate brown, white, velour black, purple, blue green, lilac, light pink, teal blue, and rosy mauve.
