AMACO PC-57 Smokey Merlot From £13.49
Smokey Merlot is a warm, dark purple glaze with a soft float of lilac over the surface. This glaze looks stunning on smooth surfaces, over textured surfaces, and layered with our other Potters Choice glazes.
Due to the powdered nature of the materials involved with the dry-mix dipping buckets of this product, their respective health information and labels differ from the brushing glazes.
Tableware producers must test all finished ware to establish dinnerware status, due to possible variations in firing temperature and contamination.

This gives a lovely rich purple which breaks over texture or gives a lovely smooth finish where there is no texture. Like all Amaco brush ons you need to apply heavily to make the colour come through. Three generous coats applied in alternate directions works well.
This glaze is also really good when layered with other Amaco cone 5/6 glazes. I particularly like 2 or 3 x Obsidian with 3 x Smokey Merlot over - it is a beautiful opaque bright purple.
Have a look at the Amaco website and/or the FaceBook group Amaco cone 5/6 exchange for lots of advice and tips.
