Needs lots of water for the right mix thickness. Glaze clots when dipped. Spray works better.  Shows all marks if glaze is touched up.  Does not move much. Matt, looks rusty – antique like.

Using underglazes with highfire (Cone 6)

The benefits of firing underglazed pottery (mainly children's work) is that the end result is much more durable than low fired projects. We really wanted the projects to last for generations remembering how our parents and grandparents cherished our school ceramic work. We therefore, fire all of our work and our students work to cone 6 including underglazes.

We learned that the majority of underglazes do not yield good and expected results and not all clear glazes interact favorably with underglazes. Most underglazes and most clear glazes will cause blistering, fade or change colors. After numerous tests, we are satisfied with the results and been using those select few colors listed in the table below successfully. Clear Glaze: The only clear glaze that gave us consistent and satisfying results is Amaco's Sahara HF-9. The clay we use Standard's Cone 6-10 buff clay - baldwin 192.

See children's underglazed cone 6 projects.
