SW-146 Aurora Green (brush on) Stoneware Glaze By Mayco
Cone 6: Aurora Green produces a mottled aqua gloss glaze with light brown and large black crystals. As the crystals melt, bursts of blue and brown will develop.
Cone 10: Color changes to a variegated pink/blue/green. Crystals become less pronounced.
TIP: SW-108 Green Tea is the base glaze. For a lighter crystal effect, you may try applying two coats of SW-108 Green Tea with a third coat of SW-146 Aurora Green. Due to the large sized crystals in Aurora Green they often reside in the bottom of the glaze; be sure to stir well or pour the glaze out onto a plate to make them more accessible.
Stoneware crystal glazes are designed to expand upon the surface with dazzling bursts of color. Fired results will vary based on ware’s orientation. Crystals will settle to the bottom of the jar and will need a good mixing prior to initial use. Re-stir between each coat. Stir with palette knife or other unpainted tool. Avoid placing crystals near the bottom third of a vertical piece as they may cause additional movement during firing. Crystals will flow more than the base glaze. While the glaze is wet, use your fan brush to redistribute the crystals to achieve balanced coverage. Over-application or heavy deposition of the crystals can cause pin-holing or running. When storing a crystal glaze, you may consider storing upside down to facilitate crystal dispersion on the next use.
