Cone 6: Speckled Plum produces a reddish brown gloss finish (one to two light coats) and evolves to deliver floating maroon-mauve tones with heavier applications (three to four coats). Heavier applications may also yield bands of reddish-mauve specks when used with certain clay bodies. While you’ll enjoy how Speckled Plum moves, the glaze will not run off your ware during a cone 6 oxidation firing.
Cone 10: Color darkens.
TIP: Thinner applications will produce darker browns and reds; heavier applications will begin to show an opaque, maroon-mauve float.
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.
