Wanneer deze wordt bedekt met een van de Texas Two-Step overjassen, produceert Coffee Bean de reeks kenmerkende olievlekken. Als hij alleen wordt gebruikt, is het een donker gevlekte bruine kleur, met een look die lijkt op die van leer.
When covered by one of the Texas Two-Step overcoats, Coffee Bean produces the series signature oilspots. When used on its own, it is a darkly mottled brown, with a look similar to leather.
The Texas Two-Step Oilspots are a specialized series that use pairs of glazes to create unique effects. Anywhere that one of the five overcoats is laid on top of Licorice, Coffee Bean, or Brick Red, a stunning spotted pattern will appear during firing. Thicker applications lead to bigger spots. Try using wax resist after the first layer to create negative space designs.
|Every kiln and firing is different. It is best to use witness cones in every firing.
Coyote glazes are designed to be fired between witness cone 5 and witness cone 6.
Cone readings are a combintation of time and temperature, and do not correspond directly to any specific temp in degrees. Most digitally controlled kilns have a pre-programmed cone fire setting that will allow you to reach the proper temperature with minimal fussing (we use a cone 5, fast, with 30 minute hold.) For manual (sitter) kilns we recommend using a 6 cone.
Thermocouples and other electronic measuring devices are prone to error and degrade over time. The only way to be certain that your kiln is firing to the right temperature is to use witness cones every time you fire your kiln.
