Mayco Dark Flux
Mayco Flux is a flowing glaze developed for use with other stoneware glazes to enhance the movement, and promote reactions and interesting effects. Apply 2-3 coats of Flux under or over another mid-range glaze to bring about “hidden colors”. Flux can be brushed in layers, glaze trailed, plopped with a brush, and blotted with a sponge. The thicker the application, the more mobility there will be.
The order in which you apply Mayco Flux - above or beneath another glaze - impacts the fired result. Designed to fire to cone 5/6, but can be fired to cone 9/10 (movement will be more pronounced at higher temperatures).
Variables that influence movement include the fluidity of the companion glaze, application methods, thickness and orientation of application, number of coats, firing temperature and program. To prevent glaze run-off, avoid applying Flux to the bottom third of your ware.
