Pottery Cascades™ Glazes How To Use: Pottery Cascades™ Glazes
Characteristics:

Pottery Cascades™ are non-toxic, free flowing glazes used to produce special effects or flow patterns when used in combinations with other non-toxic glazes. Pottery Cascades™ are not intended to be used alone.

PC-602 White Cascade intermingles with the other glazes being used, introducing pure white to the colors you are using, blending with the color. PC-602 White Cascade has a minimum movement and will stay in the pattern that you apply it in. PC-603 Amber Cascade and PC-604 Black Cascade perform the same as PC-602 White Cascade. PC-601 Clear Cascade produces a flowing effect, and allows the color of the base glaze to show through. It can also alter your original color, creating a new color. It will form runs or you can direct the runs when you apply the product.

Pottery Cascades™ should be used in combination with other non-toxic glazes; using a leaded product with Cascades will create stress on the piece during firing and crack the piece. For best results, use with Elements™, Classic Crackles™, Crystalites™, Stroke & Coat® and Pottery Coat™ bases.


Product Features, Benefits and Application Recommendations:

  1. Apply PC-602 White Cascade, PC-603 Amber Cascade and PC-604 Black Cascade with a brush in 1-3 coats. Can be dabbed on at random,evenly or unevenly, to create different flow patterns using a sea wool sponge, Chore Boy™ or Tuffy™ sponge.

  2. PC-601 Clear Cascade should be brushed on as you would apply a glaze. Apply 1-2 brushed coats over or under a non-toxic glaze. Do not go below the halfway point of the piece to preven glaze from running off the piece. Fire to shelf cone 06.

Special Notes:

  1. Can be applied between color, underneath and over colors for different effects.

  2. Shape of the piece affects the performance of the glaze.

  3. Firing temperature, ramp rate and a soaking period may enhance the flow patterns.

  4. Avoid excess color toward the bottom of the piece to prevent drips from forming on the bottom of pieces.

  5. Pottery Cascades are luster compatible.

  6. Clean brushes with AC-525 Brush Cleaner and warm water.
Tips and Techniques:

How do I apply Pottery Cascade?
Apply PC-602 White Cascade, PC-603 Amber Cascade and PC-604 BlackCascade with a brush in 1-3 coats. Can be dabbed on at random, evenly or unevenly to create different flow patterns using a sea wool sponge, Chore Boy™ or Tuffy™ sponge. PC-601 Clear Cascade should be brushed on as you would apply a glaze. Apply 1-2 brushed coats over or under a non-toxic glaze. Do not go below the halfway point of the piece, as the PC-601 Clear Cascade flows more. Pottery Cascades can be applied between color, underneath and over colors for different effects.

Do the different Pottery Cascades perform differently?
PC-602 White Cascade intermingles with the other glazes being used, introducing pure white to the colors you are using, blending with the color. PC-602 White Cascade has a minimum movement and will stay in the pattern that you apply it in. PC-603 Amber Cascade and PC-604 Black Cascade perform similar to the PC-602 White Cascade. PC-601 Clear Cascade produces a more flowing effect, and allows the color of the base glaze to show through. It can also alter your original color, creating a new color. It will form runs or you can direct the runs when you apply the product.

How do I fire Pottery Cascade?
Properly fire to shelf cone 06. These glazes become more fluid when high fired. Color application, firing time and temperature, shape of the piece and placement of pieces in the kiln can all affect the final results.

Can I use Pottery Cascade with other glazes?
Pottery Cascades are not intended to be used alone. Cascades should only be used in combination with other non-toxic glazes. Using a leaded product with Cascades will create stress on the piece during firing and crack the piece. For best results, use with Elements, Classic Crackles, Crystalites, Stroke & Coat and Pottery Coat.

Are Pottery Cascades overglaze compatible?
Yes. Test first.
