BOTZ STEEL BLUE (GLOSS CRYSTAL)
Classic blue, glossy effect glaze. Excellently suited also for coloured, particularly black clay. Very good melting property; tends to run slightly when coats are too thick.
BOTZ brush-on glazes are available in 200 ml and 800 ml jars, ready to use. They are highly concentrated. 800 ml equals 1.4 to 1.8 kg mixed powder glaze.
Stir the glaze thoroughly and apply the first coat on clean, dust-free biscuit ware with a brush (e.g. BOTZ 9005) before processing. Every glaze is finely tuned and has its individual consistency. Apply a second coat when the first is dry. Depending on the thickness you might want to apply a third coat.
The glaze can soon be handled when dry and is then easy to move the glazed piece to the kiln. For best results, allow the glaze to dry for a day. The ideal firing temperature for nearly all BOTZ brush-on glazes is about 1050°C with a 10–20 soak. This allows the glaze to become smoother and many effects come out more markedly.
Some of the Botz gazes can be fire to 1100°C
