Speckled Cafe Colors – ☆Birds Life
Our “Speckled Café Colors” are like our Café Colors which do not need to be clear glazed for decorative ware but still maintain a gloss finish.
Chrysanthos Speckled Café Colors are for decoration on bisqueware that may be dipped in Clear Superior Glaze or Clear Hobby Glaze. The colors can be used in conjunction with the Cafe Colors however if they are to be left undipped, they should be used with the gloss version of the Cafe Colors depending on the result required.
The colors in the range match up with the Cafe Colors of the same name. To distinguish them from the Cafe Colors, the code has been prefixed with “SC” followed by the number and the name has been prefixed with a “☆”.
Speckled Café Colors are applied with an appropriate sized soft-bristled brush for detailed work. If a larger area is being covered, a generous sized brush will minimise streakiness and allow a most even application. Speckled Café Colors are also suitable for sponging and stippling.
Speckled Café Colors in a single coat application are essentially transparent; however opacity may be achieved by the application of 2 or 3 generous coats, in a cross-hatch manner.
Spekled Café Colors are designed for use directly from the bottle, although they may be sponged. Clean water may be added to achieve alternate finishes.
Speckled Café Colors may be intermixed to achieve new colors.
Speckled Café Colors are specifically formulated for application onto earthenware clay that has been bisque fired to between cone 04 (1,060°C) and cone 03 (1,101°C), then gloss fired to between cone 06 (999°C) and cone 04 (1,060°C).
