AMACO Raku Glazes
RAKU is a very unpredictable medium and is affected by many variables. The effects achieved with these or any other RAKU glazes may not always be the same. Even after you have done RAKU for a long time you will see that it is almost impossible to have complete control over the result or a consistent glaze effect even if you are using the glaze from the same jar. However this is a spontaneous technique and all the varied effects are usually acceptable. Tong marks and other marks from reduction material is considered a characteristic of RAKU, not a defect.
These glazes will produce colorful, lustrous, and dramatic effects when reduced in a proper Raku firing. Be sure to use adequate safety measures when Raku firing- read more about this process below!
