Black Matte Dry (SD-140)
Cone 6: Black Matte is formulated to produce a smooth matte surface. Light coats will allow clay body characteristics to appear through the glaze (especially on dark and speckled clay bodies).
Cone 10: Color darkens.
TIP: A true matte finish at cone 5/6 with no movement. Thicker application, three or more coats, will produce a more opaque finish.
10 pounds dry mix dipping glaze. 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.
