Welte powder stoneware glazes KGS
Due to the high firing temperatures of stoneware, this range of KGS glazes results in unique effects that are based primarily on crystallization.
Firing temperature is between 1220 ° C - 1240 ° C, but the firing curve is of greater importance (heating and cooling rate). When applying the glaze, care should be taken as these glazes have a high fluidity.
Welte stoneware glazes are intended for connoisseurs and experts of ceramics.
To make the glaze we recommend the following:
- Measure water/medium according to the weight of powder glaze; a minimum of 45% water and/or glaze medium to be added (i.e. 450 ml water/medium per kilo glaze). The consistency of the glaze should be creamy to milky depending on the type of application. For most dipping applications it may be necessary to add up to 30% more water/medium (i.e.300 ml)
- Shake or stir the mixture vigorously
- You should then sieve this glaze slurry. For glazes with coarse effect materials, any residue should be returned to the glaze after sieving.
