Cone 6 oxidation: White Opal forms a clear- to- milky white gloss surface. One coat produces the clearest finish; subsequent layering increases the incidence of a white precipitate forming. Prominent white to bluish-white colors will emerge where the glaze pools and gathers around surface texture.
Cone 10 reduction: White variation lessens leaving a transparent gloss with white pooling.
TIP: White coloration is more visible on darker clay bodies (Buff, Manganese Speck). Thinner application will provide a glossy transparent finish. Thicker application will provide white floating.
Stoneware classic glazes offer the depth, sophistication and reliability to artists working from mid-range to high-fire temperatures. Opals are beautiful glazes for dinnerware due to its glossy, smooth finish. This glaze is great on texture and will break over high texture and pool into
Chips shown are fired flat on a white clay body fired to cone 6 oxidation and cone 10 reduction. The choice of clay body, the thickness of glaze application, the firing process, and temperature will affect the fired results.
