What’s amazing about the Mayco Raku glazes is that they will display a variety of iridescent, metallic, and crackle surfaces with each firing. In Stone Leaf’s store we have a fired chip chart so you can see each of these colors even better.

To apply:

– Give the glaze an excellent stirring up, the paint on 2 coats of the color to a piece of bisque that has been fired to Cone 04. Mayco’s bisque works wonderfully for Raku!

– REMEMBER: Do not glaze the bottom of your ware.

– Allow the glaze to dry thoroughly before you fire it.

Mayco’s suggested firing to to fire to Cone 06 with a 5 minute hold at temperature; then use your combustable of choice.

 

Some Tips for Positive Results:

– thinner coats of glad will produce greater metallic effects

– a body designed for good thermal shock will help reduce the likelihood of cracking. To see Stone Leaf’s selection of Raku Clays, click here.

– fired results will vary, so anticipate that. Your choice of clay, glaze application, firing schedule and combustable will all create unique differences from piece to piece.
