White Opal Dry (SD-250)
Cone 6: White Opal forms a clear- to- milky white gloss surface. One coat produces the clearest finish; subsequent layering increases the incidence of a white precipitate forming. Prominent white to bluish-white colors will emerge where the glaze pools and gathers around surface texture.
Cone 10: White variation lessens leaving a transparent gloss with white pooling.
TIP: White coloration is more visible on darker clay bodies (Buff, Manganese Speck). Thinner application will provide a glossy transparent finish. Thicker application will provide white floating.
10 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.
