Stoneware Exotics – Obsidian
Our “Stoneware Exotics” are variegated glazes for the use on stoneware bisque. They are suitable for covering large areas. They may be used on functional ware. The effect obtained will depend on the thickness of the glaze and on the surface that has been decorated.
Chrysanthos Stoneware Exotics are a range of glaze varieties aimed more at the sophisticated user. The glazes produce more striking results due to their compositions. Within the range are the following groups of products:
a) Metallic Glazes group SE001 – SE005
b) Metallic Glazes group Lead Free – SE013
c) Variegated Glazes group SE101 – SE157
Generally, to obtain optimum results, 3 – 4 coats of the metallic glazes and 2 – 3 coats of the other glazes should be applied using a fully loaded brush. Ensure each coat is dry before applying subsequent coats at right angles to each other.
With the variegated glazes, different effects will result based on the thickness of the glaze on the surface of the body, ridges present in the clay body were pooling of glaze can occur, clay body used and firing temperature.
Custom variegated glazes can be created by mixing oxides and other raw materials with the SE101 – Neutral.
The Stoneware Exotics have been specifically formulated for application to mid fire clays that are to be glaze fired to between cone 6 (1,222°C) and cone 10 (1,305°C).
Chrysanthos Stoneware Exotics fall into two categories, from above; group b) and c) are food safe when fired correctly while group a) are not food safe.
