Cone 6: Amber Topaz provides a translucent, light honey-blonde color. Designed to provide a hint of color with one coat, deeper color with two to three coats - but remaining translucent. Cone 10: Color changes to a transparent brown. TIP: One coat allows more of the clay body characteristics to appear through the glaze, adding a faint color gloss to the surface. Subsequent coats deepen the amber color but at three coats you will still obtain a translucent fired surface. Three+ coats will produce more opacity and less translucency. Heavy application may increase the incidence of crazing.
