Zero3 K Transparent Glaze

Description

This glaze was originally designed to work with the Zero3 engobe, stoneware and porcelain (fired at cone 03). It also works well on L212, L215. It is exceptionally glossy and transparent (when fired according to our instructions) and it is durable and fits very well. No common middle or high temperature glaze can compare if you are doing underglaze decoration, the brightness and clarity of color are stunning!

Process Properties

Screening: We have not ball milled this product, thus it may contain some oversize particles from the constituent materials. We advise that sieving the glaze slurry to at least 80 mesh.

Glazing

To get the best defect-free surface please consider using a hold-rise-drop-hold firing schedule (you can find more information about it on this page).

Recipe

As of June 2017 it is not yet available as a premixed product. But you can mix to yourself. For our lab information on the recipe, how to mix and use it click here.
