O Opalescent

All colors in the Opalescent series are LEAD FREE.
CL glazes restricted from use K-6 (ASTM D-4236/LHAMA)
Opalescent Glazes are also available in economical class packs.

Cone 05. Although AMACO® Opalescent Glazes may be used on any AMACO® clay, they develop their greatest opalescence and most interesting textures when applied over red burning clays. Most of the AMACO® Opalescent Glazes have a high gloss similar to mother-of-pearl. Best results are achieved with three or four applications of glaze. On textured ware, the glaze flows thin on relief and thick in incised areas, giving an added dimension on the surface. Apply by brushing, dipping, or pouring. These glazes should be applied rather heavily, and a slow rather than fast firing is best.  Recommended temperature is Cone 05 (1911°F, 1044°C).

AMACO Opalescent glazes are available in liquid form in pint jars.

Apply over a mature Cone 04 bisque.
