Cafe Color – Scarlet


The Chrysanthos Café Color range is a truly breathtaking and vivid collection of underglazes that are made to ignite your imagination. They are specially crafted to be used on low-fire greenware or bisqueware and require a clear glaze to ensure food safety. When fired without a clear glaze, they produce a beautiful satin finish for decorative ware.

You can achieve full coverage with just three coats or create intricate designs with a translucent finish.

The best part about the Café Color range is that you can dip it into a clear glaze without needing to fire the color on first when painted on bisque! This makes it a fantastic choice for PYOP and schools.



The Cafe Color range offers endless possibilities for ceramic art. Whether you’re aiming for full coverage or a delicate translucent effect, these versatile underglazes deliver outstanding results. An exceptional feature of the Cafe Color range is the ability to be dipped into a clear glaze without the need to fire the color first on bisque.

In the case of decorative ware, no clear glaze is required to obtain a satin finish.

With a wide palette of 60 colors, the potential for creativity is boundless. Furthermore, these colors can be intermixed, allowing artists to create an infinite spectrum of shades. It’s no wonder that PYOP studios and schools are increasingly embracing the Cafe Color range for their user-friendly nature and stunning variety.


When using these colors, an appropriately-sized soft-bristled brush will ensure precise detailing, while a larger brush will minimize streakiness and provide an even application for larger areas.

In addition to brush application, the range is also suitable for sponging and stippling techniques, allowing for creative flexibility. With a single coat, the colors are essentially transparent, but applying 2 or 3 generous coats in a cross-hatch manner can achieve the desired opacity.

These colors are designed for easy use directly from the bottle, and for added flexibility, clean water can be added to achieve alternate finishes or adjust spraying consistency.
