Pottery Coat™ creates the look of stoneware or colored clay bodies on bisque to simulate the look of high fire pottery/stoneware. Although Pottery Coat™ can be used alone, the best looks are achieved when used as a base coat in combination with Pottery Cascade™ and a flowing non-toxic glaze, such as Elements™.
Product Features, Benefits, and Application Recommendations:
- Apply to properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.
- Lightly dampen the bisque with a moistened sponge before painting allows better adhesion to the bisque.
- Shake jar well before application. Product should be the consistency of melted ice cream.
- Apply with a soft glaze brush, using the largest brush to cover the area.
- Apply 3 even coats. Apply the coats at right angles to each other to minimize brush marks. Apply Pottery Cascade™ and Elements™ on top of the Pottery Coat™, following instructions above.
- To use Pottery Coat™ on a functional item such as dinnerware, you must apply clear glaze to seal the surface. This will darken the color and will show uneven application and brush strokes. When used alone, Pottery Coat™ are porous and therefore, not recommended for use with dinnerware or other functional items.
- Clean brushes with brush cleaner and warm water.
- Pottery Coat™ glazes are not overglaze or luster compatible.
- Fire to shelf cone 06.
