SC-15 Tuxedo Stroke N Coat (pint) by Mayco Colors
Cone 06: Tuxedo is a heavily pigmented, viscous Stroke & Coat glaze that can be used for brush strokes or opaque coverage.
One coat will create a translucent finish with subsequent coats adding opacity.
We suggest two to three coats for full opacity and all over coverage.
Will fire to a gloss finish without clear glaze.
Cone 6: Opaque. No color change.
Colors can butt up to one another without moving and when used in a majolica process, Stroke & Coat will not move nor blend with the colors beneath even when using light over dark. Stroke & Coat colors are intermixable, allowing artists to create custom shades. Thin with water or media to create a wash or watercolor style of design. Because the liquid color is consistent with the fired color, artists will have no trouble visualizing finished results as they create.
Stroke & Coat fires glossy without clear glaze and is opaque with two to three coats. Because of its versatility, Stroke & Coat is the ideal product of choice for studio, classroom, potter or fine artist.
The Creative Choice
Stroke & Coat® (The Wonderglaze) is the industry’s most versatile product. It can be applied to wet clay, earthenware bisque or stoneware bisque, fired from cone 06 to cone 10, in oxidation or reduction and used in every decorative way imaginable. Stroke & Coat® can be the star or play a supporting role in endless glaze combinations. It is the ideal product of choice for the studio, classroom, potter, and fine artist.
One coat will create a translucent finish with subsequent coats increasing opacity. We suggest 2-3 coats for opacity and all over coverage. Let dry between coats. Stroke & Coat glazes will fire to a gloss finish without clear glaze. However, if desired, a clear glaze may be added. For application to clay, we recommend leaving an area unglazed, such as the back or bottom of the ware, to allow for out-gassing of the clay during the firing process. Stroke & Coat glazes have been formulated to mature at shelf cone 06/05. Most Stroke & Coat glazes will maintain their color at higher temperatures, especially reds, oranges, yellows, greens and blues. Their performance changes at cone 6 is noted on each individual product label. We recommend testing prior to use. For more information on mid-range performance,
- SC-13 Grapel and SC-33 Fruit of the Vine are formulated with Chrome-tin pigments and can be sensitive to non-toxic clear glazes. We recommend prior testing and light application of the clear glaze to avoid milkiness. These colors will not fade when used with Mayco’s NT-CLR glaze.
- SC-70 Pink-a-Dot is more translucent than other Stroke & Coat glazes. Additional coats may be necessary to achieve opacity.
- Stroke & Coat glazes do not move or blend when used with other glazes. You can apply side-by-side or layer without losing integrity of design.
Product Features and Attributes
Stroke & Coat is a heavy-bodied, versatile glaze that has the widest range of use and application of any Mayco glaze.

Firing Temperature - can be fired from cone 06 to cone 10.
Kiln Atmosphere - reduction or oxidation firing.
Surface - can be applied to greenware of bisque.
Body - can be applied to earthenware, stoneware or porcelain.
