Low Fire Friday - Semi Matte Glaze

Meagan Chaney Gumpert - Friday, August 02, 2013
An opaque glaze that has a more glossy than matte appearance, despite the name. (See the glare on these test tiles without a camera flash?) What I love about this glaze are the little variations, or specks of color that add depth and dimension to the surface.



Semi Matte Glaze - Cone 04

Frit 3124...............73
EPK.....................14
Talc......................14

For Color add
Blue: + 2% Copper carbonate and 0.5% Cobalt carbonate
Jade green: 3% Copper carbonate

These test tiles had 2-3 even coats of medium-thick glaze applied by brush.

Cheers!
Meagan

Hi Mary,

I've never had the red iron oxide stick using this application, so stacking your tiles should be fine.

Thanks for the pictures! Glad things are working out for you!
