Cone 06 oxidation (larger image): Speckled Hot Tamale is a heavily pigmented, viscous Stroke & Coat® glaze with white specks that can be used for brush strokes or opaque coverage. One coat will create a translucent finish with subsequent coats adding opacity. We suggest two to three coats for full opacity and all over coverage. Will fire to a gloss finish without clear glaze.
Cone 6 oxidation (smaller image): Opaque. Color lightens to medium brown. Specks remain.
Performing just as their counterpart, Speckled Stroke & Coat® glazes are an enhanced version of popular Stroke & Coat® colors. The addition of small specks of color to the base glaze provides a fun visual interest that does not melt or flow during the 06 glaze firing.
Stroke & Coat® is the industry’s most versatile product. It can be applied on wet clay, earthenware bisque or stoneware bisque, fired from cone 06 to cone 10, in oxidation or reduction and used in every decorative way imaginable. Use these glazes to create intricate, detailed designs. Colors can butt up to one another without moving and when used in a majolica process, Stroke & Coat® will not move nor blend with the colors beneath even when using light over dark.
Stroke & Coat® colors are intermixable, allowing artists to create custom shades. Thin with water or media to create a wash or watercolor style of design. Because the liquid color is consistent with the fired color, artists will have no trouble visualizing finished results as they create. Stroke & Coat® fires glossy without clear glaze and is opaque with two to three coats. Because of its versatility, Stroke & Coat® and Speckled Stroke & Coat® is the ideal product of choice for studio, classroom, potter or fine artist.
Chips shown are fired flat on a white clay body fired to cone 6 oxidation and cone 10 reduction. The choice of clay body, the thickness of glaze application, the firing process, and temperature will affect the fired results.
