Online Catalog:Glazes and Underglazes:High Fire Glazes:AMACO Sahara (HF) High Fire Glazes

AMACO Sahara (HF) High Fire Glazes -- LEAD FREE - Pint LiquidAMACO Sahara (HF) High Fire Glazes -- LEAD FREE - Pint Liquid
Cone 5-6.
AMACO® Sahara High Fire Glazes are compounded to match porcelain and stoneware bodies. Matt and textured glazes suitable for stoneware and transparent gloss glazes for translucent porcelain are included in this series.Sahara High Fire Glazes work well and produce interesting effects when fired in reduction as well as in oxidation (reduction firing not recommended for HF-26).

In liquid form, AMACO® Sahara High Fire glazes are ready-to-use. Although these glazes may be applied on bone dry greenware for single firing, it is easier to apply them on low fire bisque.HF-26 and HF-32 should be applied thicker than other glazes in this series. HF-36 should be fired to Cone 4 (2161°F, 1183°C) to obtain texture. For best results: if brushed they will need three coats, then clay and glaze may be matured at the same time, at the recommended firing temperature of Cone 5 (2205°F, 1207°C).

A zinc-free, clear, transparent high fire glaze (HF-9) is also available. Because the presence of zinc in a glaze formula may change the appearance of certain colors (green, black, gray, etc.), a zinc-free clear is very important for application over underglaze decoration. Any variation in color intensity of the underglazes will then depend on the individual color stability at Cone 5.

Firing range is from Cone 4 (2161°F, 1183°C) to Cone 6 (2269°F, 1243°C).

Mix with water right in the 5 gallon bucket provided to a creamy consistency. Stir well before using. If it is too thick, add some water very cautiously until it has the consistency of thin cream (dipping consistency). Dip the Cone 04 (1940°F, 1060°C) bisque fired piece into the glaze, lift it out and turn it over, allowing the excess glaze to pour out. The glaze will stop running as soon as it is lifted out of the glaze bucket. Application is uniform and there is no waiting for it to drip or dry.
