Birch is een van de Texas Two Step Overcoats en kan worden gelaagd met licorice, Coffee Bean, of Brick Red om een olievlek effect te produceren. Het glazuur kan ook op zichzelf worden gebruikt en geeft dan een licht gevlekte, neutrale kleur.

De Texas Two-Step Oilspots zijn een gespecialiseerde serie die gebruik maken van paren van glazuren om unieke effecten te creëren. Overal waar één van de vijf overcoats bovenop Licorice, Coffe Bean of Brick Red wordt gelegd, zal tijdens het bakken een prachtig gevlekt patroon verschijnen. Dikkere toepassingen leiden tot grotere vlekken. Probeer na de eerste laag wax te gebruiken om negatieve ruimteontwerpen te creëren.

Birch is one of the Texas Two Step Overcoats, and can be layered with Licorice, Coffee Bean, or Brick Red to produce an oilspot effect.  It can also be used on its own for a slightly mottled, neutral color.

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.
The tip of your self supporting cone 5 should be at least even with the base, and the tip of the cone 6 should not touch the shelf.
