Mayco SG-501 Sculpting Medium

$6.25

Ask us a question

Sculpting Medium is a dimension "glaze" that produces a white, raised surface.  A great use of Sculpting Medium is to add structured design elements to you work using stencils, lace and stamps.  Apply a stencil to your piece, brush Sculpting Medium over the stencil; let the Medium set up a bit and remove the stencil. It has the viscosity of condensed milk and it can be brushed on or applied with a sponge.  Sculpting Medium can be applied directly on bisque or on top of an unfired glaze. The recommended application thickness is 1/16 to ⅛".  The fired finish can be coarse and have rough edges; a layer of clear glaze (or a colored glaze) will smooth these sharp edges. Firing range is 05/06: it will not perform at higher temperatures.  

Product Features & Attributes

  • Quick Drying - design integrity is maximized.
  • Thickness Sensitivity - thicker applications over ⅛" may result in splits or cracks appearing in the fired result. You may want to achieve this effect; if not keep the thickness to the lowest levels (below ⅛")
  • Raised or Incised Textures - stencils and lace can be used to create raised textures; apply a base and stamp into it to create an incised area.
  • Base Glaze Properties - applied on top of a moving glaze will cause the Sculpting Medium design to move and separate.
  • Sharp Edges - when using with lace or a stencil, the removal of the lace after the product is applied may create coarse, rough edges. A moistened fan brush can be used to smooth these rough edges.  You can also apply a glaze over the Medium, which will smooth any sharp effects
  • Non Toxic, Food Safe. May not be suitable for dinnerware due to surface characteristics.
