Maycoshino Dry (SD-122)
Cone 6: Maycoshino is a variegating iron glaze with subtle color changes. In a thin application, the user will achieve rich, iron browns. Applied thicker, the user will get lighter, creamy hues which are reminiscent of traditional Japanese shino glazes. This glaze is wonderful on any surface, any color clay body.
Cone 10: Color darkens to a gray/brown.
TIP: Thin application produces a solid reddish brown opaque covering; Medium application produces a cream-tan-buff finish that breaks brown over surface texture; Heavy application significantly introduces waves of cream-tan color over the reddish brown base.
5 pounds dry mix. Dinnerware safe.
Dry formulas are added to water and used in buckets for dipping or pouring techniques. Many functional potters prefer dipping to painting for even coverage. The colors and formulas are identical in dry form, minus the added organic gums. Mayco Stoneware Dry glazes (SD is the prefix, it stands for Stoneware Dry) are great for pieces with a lot of surface texture and for layering techniques.
