Instructions

1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.

2. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of any of the above glazes (excluding SW-402 Dark Flux) to the entire mug (not the very bottom). Let coats dry in between and be sure brush is fully loaded. These glazes have minimal movement and perform well with a generous application.

3. Apply 2 coats of SW-402 Dark Flux to the inside rim of the mug. This will keep the movement to the inside of the piece to avoid and kiln shelf mishaps!

4. Wipe the bottom of the piece to make sure it is free from any glaze.

5. Let dry completely.

6. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 6

***NOTES: The flux may be added to the outside of the piece also, but be sure to account for the movement in the glaze that will be caused by this. Usually, for every addition of a coat of flux to a piece, I will recede my base coat a bit and keep the flux to the top 1/2-1/3 of a piece. The form and base glaze have as much to do with how much movement will occur as the amount of flux you are applying. If you're not sure, I would recommend firing on a kiln brick!
