Spectrum Shino Stoneware Glazes - Sample Pack
Brushing Directions: Shake or stir well. Use a soft brush to apply 3 smooth, flowing coats to stoneware clay which has been bisque fired to cone 04. Dry-foot or stilt, and fire to cone 5/6. Thin with water if necessary.
Shino glazes fire to a satiny matte finish at cone 5 or a slightly shinier finish at cone 6. They are designed to break so that you see different shades of color in areas of different thicknesses. The breaking effect becomes more pronounced at cone 6 than cone 5.
Five of the Shino glazes (1404, 1405, 1406, 1407 & 1411) are lead-free, non-toxic and food safe. The other 7 colors (1401, 1402, 1403, 1408, 1409, 1410 & 1412) are lead-free and food safe but they have a Health Label due to the presence of copper or manganese or zinc above the non-toxic threshold level.
