    Stoneware washes

    Hi has anyone tried to apply the Mayco Stoneware Washes to green ware as an underglaze? My plan was to apply (iron wash, cobalt wash, copper wash) to green ware and bisque, the clear when I fire again at 06. any predictions or experience to what may happen? thanks ~Mal

    Cone 06 - Mayco Dry Mix Glaze

    Hi, I fired my kiln yesterday and I received some mixed results. I follow a fairly strict process when firing my kiln (usually takes 8 or so hours) and have had good success in the past. I don't mix my own glazes yet, and use dry mix from Mayco. In this fire i received a fair amount of bubbles in the glaze. I have attached a few photos. I was wondering if this is a symptom of overfiring? I am sure this is ceramics 101 but any input would be great. thanks ~Mal

    Eucalyptus Carved Platter

    From the album: Pottery 2016

    That glaze in the sun .... *sigh of happiness* White stoneware, thrown on the pottery wheel, carved in a design of eucalyptus leaves in the wind. Glazed in Mayco's Stoned Denim at ^6 in an electric kiln.

    Eucalyptus Grove Platter

    From the album: Pottery 2016

    This is my very first platter or plate of any kind, although I have made a few pie plates. I actually intended this to be a pie plate but accidentally "stepped on the gas" just as I was finishing so the walls spun out almost flat. I decided it was a platter instead. I'm very happy with how this turned out. White stoneware, thrown on the pottery wheel, carved in a design of eucalyptus leaves in the wind. Glazed in Mayco's Stoned Denim at ^6 in an electric kiln. (Actually fired twice because the first time a cookie exploded and got shards everywhere.)

  8. Hi everyone, Mayco makes a clear "Pottery Cascade" which allows commercial glazes to melt and run together at low cone temps. I would like to create this on my own but am not sure which ingredients would produce the best result. Can anyone suggest a recipe? Thanks.
  9. Hello everyone! I'm new here, and I've been reading some threads. I was wondering if anyone might know of anyone or might have stashed somewhere, the Blue Marble glaze from Mayco Jungle Gems. This glaze was discontinued in the early 2000s because of its lead content. I just recently discovered it when someone had a tiny amount for me to glaze a pinch pot. I glazed it at cone 6 instead of 06 (oops) but it came out AMAZING! (Turns out Jungle Gems CAN be fired at cone 6!). The Mayco rep contacted me about my inquiry and is sending me a package of glazes to play around with to see if I can recreate it, but I would really like to find something very similar or some that someone isn't using. I will pay a reasonable amount for this! Questions: Is touching a piece made with lead glaze harmful? Once a lead glaze is fired is it still dangerous?
