AMACO Low Fire Ceramic Glaze (Cone 04/06)

Teacher's Choice and Teacher's Pallet (TC, TP)
A new line of Duncan Amaco glazes designed for limited budgets.  8 colors come in gallons.  They are economical because they aren't super pigmented.  16 additional super pigmented colors come in gallons and may be used to tint the gallons.  All colors can be mixed and matched to achieve an unlimited color pallet.  GREAT FOR SCHOOLS
Amaco F-Series Glazes (F)
F-Series Amaco glazes are fritted, leadless compositions.  They are semi-opaque and fire with a high gloss.  Colors are more intense and brilliant than those of many other glazes.  Because they are leadless, they are recommended for functional ware.  GREAT FOR SCHOOLS  Apply to cone 04 bisque by brushing, dipping or pouring; fire to cone 05.
Amaco Artist's Choice Glazes (A)
Cone 05 oxidation Amaco glazes that look like high fired reduction stoneware.  They can be fired over any earthenware clay; however they look their best over dark or red firing clay.  The color in the clay will partially show through the texture and add another color dimension to the glaze.  These ceramic glazes will look completely different depending on the clay they are applied on.
Amaco Gloss Glazes (LG)
Bright Opaque and transparent colors characterize this popular LG Gloss Glaze series. These ceramic Amaco glazes flow during firing to a high gloss while correcting most application defects. Because of their flexibility, good results can be obtained on many clays. Some colors contain lead.
Amaco Majolica Gloss Glazes (GDC)
Majolica Gloss has been developed specifically to produce the Majolica technique.  Each of these can be applied directly over unfired Amaco Opaque White glaze (LG11.)  The special formulation means that no clear covering glaze is necessary.  Colors will fire glossy and assume the smooth surface of the white base glaze.  In addition to the Majolica technique, these can be used for over all coverage or to design over the bisque with no additional glaze over or under it.  All are lead free, and have tested dinnerware safe alone and over Amaco LG11.  They will also product excellent results when used over most of the LG, F, LM and DG series, but have not been tested for dinnerware safety.  In liquid form all are AP Non-Toxic.  Semi-transparent. NOTE: THIS SERIES IS DISCONTINUED BY THE MANUFACTURER SO GET THEM WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!
Amaco Matt Glazes (LM)
The LM Matt Glaze Series is one of the most pleasing for decorative art pottery.  Because these glazes move very little in the glaze firing, they are excellent for creative design work and controlled glazing techniques. These ceramic glazes are all non-toxic and dinnerware safe.  Most colors are opaque.
Amaco Opalescent Glazes (O)
Opalescent Amaco Glazes may be used on any clay, but they develop their greatest opalescence and most interesting textures when applied to red clay.  Most have a high gloss with an iridescence similar to mother-of-pearl.  Best results are achieved with three or four applications of glaze.  On textured ware, the glaze flows thin on relief and thick in incised areas, giving an added dimension on the surface.  May be used in Raku firing.  May give interesting effects at high temperatures.  Opaque and dinnerware safe.  
Amaco Stone Texture Glazes (ST)
A smooth, unique stone-like surface when fired over a Cone 04 bisque.  The ST glaze series flows a little in the firing, settling in the crevices and towards the bottom of a vertical surface.  Therefore, when applied over a textured surface they will produce antique-like variations or a weathered and worn out look on the higher relief areas of the piece. 
Amaco Magic Flow Glazes (MF)
New line of flowing glaze that simulates reduction Ash Glazes.  
Amaco Crystaltex Glazes (CTL)
Crystaltex glazes are for the potter who dares to try something novel.  Multi-color effects can be subtle as with #32, which fires to a creamy yellow peppered with rich brown, or they can be flashy like the red, white and blue of #54.  No two pieces will ever be alike, but all will be unique.  These liquid Amaco glazes consist of a basic color with the addition of one or more crystals of contrasting colors.  Crystals fan out on flat horizontal surfaces and run on vertical pieces.  Many are lead free and dinnerware safe. 
Amaco Alligator Glazes (LT)
With Textured Alligator Glazes, no two pieces are ever alike due to the many variations in texture which occur in firing.  Variegated matt textures predominate at the lower firing temperatures and gloss textures at the higher with a mingling of matt and gloss between the extremes.  Apply to bisque or greenware by brushing, pouring or dipping.  Some are dinnerware safe and non-toxic.  
Amaco Specialty Glazes (L, SP)

Snowfluff: A white foaming type texture glaze and completely matte.  It can be tinted into rich pastel shades.  Can be applied over, under or between unfired ceramic glazes for unusual texture combinations. 
 
White Pebble: Has a pebbly appearance as it breaks up into a pattern resembling pearl tapioca after firing.
Overdrift: An opaque, frosty white glaze, heavy in consistency.  It is indispensable in combination glaze techniques.  It renders a cascade of white floats when applied over or under a glaze.
White Crawl: White Crawl is a glaze that will crawl into irregular and very interesting patterns when fired.  The pattern will very depending on the thickness of application.  A heavier application will result in larger and wider separations in the surface of the glaze, exposing larger areas of the background, while a thinner application will result in a smaller, more delicate pattern.
Lustre and Metallics: Provide the metallic look of hard steel and the high brilliance of lustre.
Arroya Glazes: Textured and produce a unique carved effect when fired.  Designed for use over gloss and matte unfired glazes, Arroya Amaco glazes are best applied with a fully loaded fan blender for all-over coverage or with a sponge using a pouncing method.
Amaco Old World Crackle Glazes (CR)
Formulated to produce a network of cracks on the fired ware similar to crazing.  To emphasize the crackle after firing, swab the fine lines with colored inks.  Recommended for use on decorative items only as it does not seal the surface of the ware as other ceramic glazes do.  They work well for raku too..
Amaco Glaze Crystals
One or more colors of crystals can be added to a base glaze for exciting results.  Each piece of pottery is one-of-a-kind, never to be duplicated.  Apply the crystals by placing them where desired on the piece while the glaze is still wet.  When fired, the crystals flow into the base glaze.  
Amaco Raku Glazes
These glazes will produce a very dramatic effect when reduced after the RAKU firing.  These Amaco glazes need to be fired to their recommended temperature of Cone 05 (1911°F, 1044°C).  Once they reach temperature, turn off the kiln; let it cool to about 1700°F, 944°C before you pull the pieces out of the kiln with the tongs.

AMACO Underglazes

Amaco Sun Strokes Brilliant Underglazes (SS)
Vivid reds, oranges, yellow and green!  Six intense special underglazes specifi­cally formulated for Cone 06-05 in oxidation and raku firings—with or without a clear glaze.  Sun Strokes Underglazes have a gloss finish even when fired without the clear glaze.  Therefore if they are applied on the bottom of the piece, they must be stilted when fired or they will stick to the kiln shelf.  Clear glaze smoothes out and brightens the colors.
Amaco Underglaze (LUG)
Amaco Liquid Underglaze Decorating Colors are concentrated, opaque colors recommended for covering large areas quickly, easily and smoothly.  Results are equally effective when the colors are used for detailed painting, sgraffito decoration, water color effects, free brush painting, wax resists and mishima decoration.   Colors may be brushed on greenware which is to be bisque fired before applying a covering glaze, or on mature Cone 04 bisque, then covering glaze applied and fired to maturity temperature of the clear glaze.  Also use for coloring slip or clay.  Non are non-toxic!
Amaco Velvet Underglaze (V)
Velvets are a very versatile, semi-translucent underglaze which offers two finish possibilities.  When left unglazed they have the appearance of velvet.  Or, when glazed with a clear gloss glaze, they have a soft, satin matt finish.  They are rich colors and can be used for all over coverage similar to an opaque underglaze.  Colors may be mixed together to create unique colors.  Use on greenware, then bisque prior to applying a clear glaze.  Or use on bisque with a covering glaze applied prior to firing.  Velvets tolerate a wide firing range, and can be used on most temperatures and clay bodies.  Some colors may fade at high temperatures (cone 7 and up).  When used without a glaze cover, Velvets should not be used on food or drink containers.   Non-toxic. 
Amaco Semi-Moist Underglaze Colors Pan Sets
Semi-Moist Underglaze decorating colors are suitable for many types of ceramic painting.  They are especially good for water color effects and painting of fine detail.   The 32 colors are concentrated, intense and opaque.  Additional shades and tints are made by intermixing.   Colors may be brushed on either greenware or bisqueware.  A brush dipped in water lifts the color for decorating.  Further thinning of the water soluble colors prepares them for transparent water color effects by brushing.  Colors are approximately the same tone before and after firing, so effectiveness of color combinations and blending can be observed as painting progresses.  Colors dry quickly and may be handled without damage.  If applied to bisque, sponge the first clear coat to avoid smearing. 
Amaco Majolica Gloss (GDC)
Majolica Gloss Decorating Colors for bisque or Majolica.  Maybe applied using Majolica technique, or may be used in a one step underglaze method:  Apply GDC colors directly over Cone 04 bisque to create a design, then apply clear glaze and fire.  There is no need to fire the GDC before applying the clear glaze.  However, clear glaze should be applied by dipping or by sponging.  One coat of GDC will create translucent designs, or apply 2-3 coats for a more solid color.

WB-Series Versa Color is a lead free series of 16 colors in a convenient water base for application onto lead free glazes.  These easy-to-use, economical overglazes have a consistency suitable for silk screen printing, stencil, and free brush decorating methods, as well as china painting.  Colors may be thinned with water.
