AMACO V361 - Jet Black From £7.20
AMACO Velvet underglazes if left unglazed they have the appearance of velvet. They will intensify in colour when covered with a Clear Transparent or Gloss glaze.
The Velvets are very rich colours and can be used for an all over coverage. They fire true to colour when applied from the jar and may be intermixed to create a palette of hundreds of colours.
The colours may be brushed on greenware which is to be bisque fired before applying a covering glaze or on bisqueware, then a covering glaze applied. For opaque coverage by brushing, the consistency of the colour in the jar is correct.
Velvets have a wide firing range 1040°C - 1220°C, they are also Lead Free.

I love this black Amaco underglaze. Three coats on the grittier clays after bisq firing gives a beautifully deep even black, matte and rich. A lighter watered down wash of it over porcelain can give soft greys. I've tested it on a stippled textured black clay and it gives a lovely organic dark earthy finish. Highly recommend this for a variety of different effects and I use it to mix in with other Amaco underglaze colours to change depths of colour etc. Stays pretty true to colour after firing.

this is the standard black underglaze. it. is predictably smooth and consistently ready.
Deirdre from Ireland asks
Is one coat sufficient to get a good strong black under a clear glaze. I plan on using it on recessed lettering on bisque and then putting a clear glaze over.
Louise from United Kingdom asks
Am I able to use this underglaze on both earthernware and stoneware clay/bisqueware?
Agnieszka from United Kingdom asks
if used in pure form without glaze can I cover the piece all over or will it stick to the kiln shelf? ta
