Amethyst is an opaque, dark purple glaze that has a consistent, reliable result that is great for classrooms. Due to the purple pigment Amethyst might lose some of the rich purple color when fired at a higher temperature.
Several artists have experimented with the Celebration glazes in wood, soda, and salt at temperatures up to cone 12, which yielded great results!
Make sure you always test when exploring alternative firings for any of AMACO’s glazes.
AMACO® Celebration Glazes are a beautiful group of bright opaque colors for midrange clays that are as colorful as lowfire earthenware glazes. Bisque fire the clay to Cone 04, then glaze and fire to maturing temperature at Cone 5. Experiment with them in combinations and increase your choice of color and texture.
