Cone 6: Smoke is an opaque grey-blue stoneware glaze with soft, subtle variegating hues. Application thickness strongly influences the fired color; surface texture will also produce variegation during the firing.
Cone 10: Color changes to a variegated sage green with a glossy finish.
TIP: One coat creates a blue-grey haze over a weathered brown; Two coats intensify the grey cast while Three coats intensify the overall grey-blue opaque finish. Brown breaks on raised surfaces on the body.
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.
