Stoneware Glaze 1305 Deep Blue, Glossy 100 g
A stoneware glaze with an unusually clean and deep blue colour.
Make tests to achieve a good result (do a 3-dip test: dip the whole test piece, then half, then a third). Too thick or too thin layers can give pastel blue or gray-blue colour. The best colour depth is obtained at 1260 ºC. 1305 is a very exciting glaze that goes well on all types of clay, but gives the best colour depth on lighter clays.
|Rec. temperature||:||1220-1280 °C|

The glaze powder is mixed with water, for good mixing results we recommend glaze stirrers . Measure approx. 8 dl water per kg glaze powder and slowly pour the powder into the water while stirring. Adjust glaze powder and amount of water using a hydrometer . If the glaze has not been used for some time, the specific gravity should be checked before use.
We recommend that transparent and single-colored glazes should be sieved through a sieve with a mesh density of 60 mesh , however, sieving of effect glazes should be avoided.
The glaze can settle, to avoid this adjusting agent ABM-3  can be added.
