COSSH Sheets & Safety Information
BOTZ earthenware glazes are available ready to use in 200ml jars. Stir the glaze thoroughly and apply 2 – 3 thick coats. The glaze soon dries allowing the pots to be lifted into the kiln. For best results allow the glaze to dry for a day before firing.
Results will vary depending on thickness of glaze, clay applied, shape of vessel and final firing temperature.
The ideal firing temperature is around 1040°C with a 30 minute soak.
Beautiful and inexpensive for such a finish. Provides a surface that is slightly reflective. Good flow when heated to temperature. Cheaper than a gold lustre but works just as well. Look good when allowed to flow into other glazes. Needs at least two coats. Could be used on a variety of pieces.
This worked well on my small test tile but wasn't so good on larger areas. I think it might need to have more coats to get the effect, at least three, but when it works the effect is very pleasant, not as shiny as the sample but works well with dark colours.
