Mayco Golden Sand AS513 118ml
Part of Mayco's Astro Gem glaze range AS513 Golden Sand 118ml is a brush-on textural matte colour with jewel-like crystals.
Astro Gems are an underglaze-based textural glaze that contains tiny crystals. When fired, these crystals provide jewel-like spots on the matte surface of the glaze.
Astro Gems can be applied to both green-ware and bisque.
Colour: Off-white with tan crystals
Firing Range: Cone 06
- Cone 06 oxidation: Golden Sand is an off-white matte underglaze base with tiny tan crystals that fire glossy.
- Stir and shake for 5-6 seconds before use – you’ll want to make sure the crystals are evenly dispersed in the glaze before applying.
- Apply 3 smooth, even coats to properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque using a soft brush, such as a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan Brush. Try to get the brush fully saturated (loaded) and apply alternate coats in a perpendicular direction to the previous coat (helps to evenly distribute the crystals on your surface).
- Fire to shelf cone 06.
Food Safety: Astro Gems are Certified AP Non-Toxic, safe for use by artists of all ages when used according to manufacturer’s directions. Astro Gems are not recommended for dinnerware as they exhibit surface textures such as cracks and crevices. While the glazed surface may pass lead & cadmium leach tests, and therefore legally considered Food Safe, attempts to adequately clean the textured surface may cause the underlying porous ware to absorb water and fail. Recommended for ornamental use only.
