Magma & Iron

Designer: Carmen Allen



  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 stoneware bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust
  2. Apply the masking tape in design of choice.
  3. Apply 3 coats of SW-406 Magma to the piece, allowing the glaze to dry in between coats. Keep in mind that heavier the application will result more dimension/texture and lighter application will have less.
  4. Remove the tape.
  5. Apply 1 coat of SW-301 Iron Wash to the front and back of the piece, avoiding the foot.
  6. Use a damp sponge to wipe away any glaze that may have gotten on the foot.
  7. Fire to cone 5/6. *Sample piece was fired to cone 6*

This project is not dinnerware safe due to the Magma glazes. For decorative use only.
