Fantasy Crystals – Black
Our “Fantasy Crystals” are low fire ceramic glass beads of various sizes that may be added to glaze to create the effect of crystal formation. To enhance crystal formation and glaze flow, a flux SP025 Fantasy Enhancer may be added.
Chrysanthos Fantasy Crystals are a premium range of crystal that can be added to the Fantasy Glazes or to any of the Chrysanthos glaze products.
Care should be taken when handling crystals. They should be used in a well ventilated area and mixed in thoroughly with the glaze before use.
The availability of the Fantasy Crystals enables the creation of an infinite number of combinations of crystal glazes using the Superior Glaze and Fantasy Enhancer as a base.
Please note that the Fantasy Crystals and any crystal glazes made using these products are not suitable for functional ware due to the tendency of the crystals to craze.
The Fantasy Crystals may be applied to the surface of bisqueware either by placing them on wet glaze by hand or by mixing them into the glaze to be applied.
An interesting effect can be obtained by adding Fantasy Enhancer to a Superior Glaze that is first applied to bisqueware. The crystals can be mixed into a contrasting color Superior Glaze and then applied over the first glaze.
For the best results, the Fantasy Crystals along with the glaze should be fired to between cone 06 (999°C) and cone 04 (1,060°C) on earthenware bisque that has been previously fired to between cone 04 (1,060°C) and cone 03 (1,101°C).
Ceramic ware that has been coated with Fantasy Crystals should not be used for the storage of food and beverages.
The Fantasy Crystals are lead free however they may have a tendency to craze.
