Use Mayco Stoneware Glazes on any midrange clay body. These glazes are intended for use at cone range 5/6 but are also stable and pleasing at cone 10. Can be used in oxidation, reduction or other alternative atmospheric firing conditions. Always test prior to use.
Mayco’s Washes are versatile in use and firing range. They can be used alone as a body stain or surface treatment or used over or under another glaze- ideal for image transfer techniques and line work. Will perform in firing temperatures from cone 06-cone 10. Available in Iron, Rutile, Manganese, Copper and Cobalt finishes.
Stoneware washes can be used alone or in combination with other glazes. As they are highly concentrated, we recommend you thin with water prior to use. They can be applied to earthenware clay bodies and low fired as well as to stoneware bodies for higher temperature firing. Test prior to use is recommended.
