    Description

    Washes are a multi-purpose product with limitless possibilities. Washes can be used alone or with any glaze from low fire temps at cone 06/05, to mid-range temps at cone 5/6, and up to high fire temps at cone 10. They are primarily used painted into textured areas and wiped away on the higher surface to accentuate the texture. When used in combination, Copper Wash will add some green variation and movement to the glaze or glazes. The amount of mobility produced when using Copper Wash in combination is dependent upon how much of each product was applied; how many coats of each and how many different products are being used; and the performance of the glaze it is being paired with. For example, layering Copper Wash with a glossy glaze that breaks over texture will create more movement than layering it with an opaque matte glaze. We recommend only applying Copper Wash to the top 2/3 of a piece when layering with other glazes because of the movement produced when layering. It works great when applied with a brush around the rim of a piece or applied with a glaze trailer in a pattern. Copper Wash also works great as a body stain. Applying clear glaze can lessen the appearance of staining.

     

    The chips shown are fired flat on a white clay body.  The choice of clay body, the thickness of glaze application, the firing process, and temperature will affect the fired results.
