How to use Artistic Glazes (Aventurines):
Liquid glaze is very good for brush on. It really should be coated 2-3 times with a gentle brush when the first fire. When drying please fire between 940-1000°C. Shake and stir very well before to use. If the glaze becomes thickened higher than time easily add water and stir thoroughly.
Dry glaze is to be dissolved in water to a thick paste which must be thinned to the correct density. Each glaze is suggested to be tried with different layers on the body concerned and under decided conditions. The mixing of the glazes is possible in order to swap color shade, melting properties or to reach few artistic effects. Once in a while, the glaze coat can crawl due to the presence of dust, grease or dirt on the bisque. Glazed pieces have to be well dried prior to the lighting. The firing temperature should correspond to the given information.
