AMACO® Velvets semi-translucent underglazes offer two finish possibilities. When left unglazed they have the appearance of velour or velvet. They will intensify in color when covered with an AMACO® Clear Transparent or Gloss glaze. The colors may be brushed on greenware which is to be bisque fired before applying a covering glaze or on a mature Cone 04 (1971°F, 1077°C) bisque, then a covering glaze applied. For opaque coverage by brushing, the consistency of the color in the jar is correct.
Velvets tolerate a wide firing range with recommended firing temperature being that of the clay used. Click here for a cone 5 and cone 10 Velvet Underglaze chip chart
