oxide washes

Recommended Posts

Have any of you folks use the Mayco washes and do you have any pictures?

 

 

Yup, I love the Manganese and Iron washes. I actually can't find any of the iron wash, but when it's brushed on solid it comes out looking almost like a burgundy leather (^6 oxidation). It's quite beautiful.

 

The manganese is a beautiful blackish-brown that, on my stoneware, looks a lot like a stained walnut.

 

Attaching two photos of some sideways bowls that I made. The exterior is the manganese wash, brushed on while on a wheel. Third photo is a double-walled vessel, the one on the right has the manganese wash as well.

 

Hope this helps!

Have you ever tried them over or under glazes?

You know, I actually haven't. I just got a gallon of a Coyote white crawling glaze and am interested to see how it will interface with the oxide wash.

 

But no, I pretty much use them for textural effect so I don't have "unfinished" clay.

I used a green, I think it was called celadon. I put a clear glaze on top. I wasn't impressed with the results. I used a lot of the wash and it seemed to fade. This was at cone 6 on white stone ware. I didn't think to use it with out a top glaze, may try that.

 

mregecko has much better looking results than I did.

The green is their copper wash. From other's results I have seen, it's a pale faded green. Not much that I would do with it so I haven't played with it. I hear it's a heavy fluxer.

Someone who is really good at sealing the seams on tin cans.

I spent a rather uneventful summer after high school working third shift at a canning company where my job was to measure seams on lids after the cans came out of the machines . . . aside from being able to put on my resume that I could use and read a micrometer, not much carry over. Although I did ensure the veggies on the shelf were properly canned and safe for eating.

It will make the glaze over which the wash is applied melt even more and run . . . over the foot and onto the kiln shelf, if you are not careful. Fluxes are the component of glazes that make things melt.
