Cone 6: Copper Jade fires to a gloss finish, producing colors that can range from brown-greens to creamy tan hues. Color breaks dark and can pool into red tones where thick. This glaze yields complex surfaces through movement and color variation.
Cone 10: Color changes to a red/brown with some black/copper mottling.
TIP: One coat will produce dark, greenish tones, thicker coats will add greens. Thickest applications will result in metallic red hues.
Stoneware classic glazes offer the depth, sophistication and reliability to artists working from mid-range to high-fire temperatures. Many glazes will break over textures, revealing secondary colors and shades. Used alone, stoneware glazes produce beautiful color variations. One coat will allow the clay body to show through the glaze and two to three coats deeper the color. The choice of clay body, thickness of glaze application, firing process and temperature will affect the fired finish.
