The brilliance of fireworks is transferred onto bisque with Duncan Crystals Glazes™
The easiest glaze to apply, crystal pebbles of varying sizes are embedded into the glaze and burst in the kiln to reveal an explosion of multicolor flecks.
Creates distinctive and unique array of colors that even a novice artist can achieve.
Stir glaze without disturbing crystals. Apply 2 coats to shelf cone 04 bisque. Mix in Crystals for 3rd coat. Apply crystals sparsely near bottom of the piece to keep crystals from flowing onto kiln shelf. Stilt and fire to cone 06. Clean up with water. Always refer to label instructions for proper application and usage.
To create custom looking piece, apply Crystals in combination with other glazes and other colors.
Crystals can work well to high fire cone 5-6. However be aware the crystals can run more on a vertical surface. For high fire application, we recommend firing a test piece because high fire-clays vary.
Duncan Crystals Glazes™ are Non-Toxic. Duncan Crystals Glazes™ are recommended for ornamental use only when applied to low fire earthenware clay bodies. All Duncan Crystals Glazes™ glazes have been certified as Non-Toxic, suitable for use by artists of all ages when used according to manufacturer’s directions. Duncan Crystals Glazes™ are not recommended for dinnerware produced from low fire earthenware clay bodies as these glazes can exhibit surface textures such as cracks and crevices. While the glazed surface may pass lead & cadmium leach tests, and therefore legally considered Food Safe, attempts to adequately clean the textured surface may cause the underlying porous ware to absorb water and fail. Duncan Crystals Glazes™ may be considered dinnerware safe if surface texture is eliminated when firing to mid-range or high fire temperatures.
