Mayco Stroke & Coat Fabulousness

Have you tried all the versatile ways you can use Mayco Stroke n Coats in  your studio?



I was recently working on Stone Leaf’s website, updating some things on the Mayco Stroke & Coat page and as I was working, I was recalling all of the fabulousness that is the Mayco Stroke & Coat colors.

Stroke & Coats are an unbelievably versatile product, suitable for so many studios and decorating situations. I am constantly impressed with what these products can do.

Mayco calls Stroke & Coats THE WONDERGLAZE. And they are wonderful. Here are some of the ways you can use them:

apply them to wet clay
apply them to dry greenware
apply them to bisque
apply them on top of glaze
apply clear on top of them, or don’t apply clear.
use them for sgraffito
use 1 coat for a more translucent look, apply up to 3 coats for a more opaque look
use them with a luster
use a slip trailing bottle for a more raised look
mix them for new colors
layer dark colors ontop of lighter colors
fire them at Cone 06, Cone 5/6, or Cone 10
fire them in oxidation or reduction
layer them with other awesome Mayco products such as Foundations or Stonewares .

With over 80 colors in the line, including Speckled Stroke & Coats there is a Stroke & Coat color for any project you can dream of. Stroke & Coats come in 2, 8, and 16 oz squeeze bottles and super popular colors are available in gallons by special order. Speckled Stroke & coats come in 2 and 16 oz bottles.
