AMACO Velvet Underglaze 303 Terra Cotta
AMACO Velvets semi-translucent underglazes offer two finish possibilities. When left unglazed they have the appearance of velour or velvet. They will intensify in color when covered with an AMACO Clear Transparent or Gloss glaze.
The colors may be brushed on greenware which is to be bisque fired before applying a covering glaze or on a mature Cone 04 (1971°F, 1077°C) bisque, then a covering glaze applied. For opaque coverage by brushing, the consistency of the color in the jar is correct.
Velvets tolerate a wide firing range with recommended firing temperature being that of the clay used.
If left unglazed, AMACO® Velvets should not be used on surfaces which come in contact with food or drink. Velvets are dinnerware safe when covered by AMACO clear glazes LG-10, F-10, and HF-9 or any other dinnerware safe glaze.
