I'm trying to find a clear, satin brush-on glaze for ^5-6 stoneware that's actually clear and not "milky" or "white-ish". Even a matte finish would be ok, but I'd prefer satin. Any suggestions? My clay body is Standard brown 112 and Standard dark brown 266.

Love the Ceramic Arts Daily site, the forums, the features. Thank you for providing such a fabulous resource!

Try Opulence Clear Liner Glaze. It comes dry, ready to mix with water. I have used it on the inside and outside of many pots with no problems. Definritely clear satin.

If you are into making your own glazes you might start here...

I just ordered a jar of Mayco's Matte Clear -- it hasn't arrived yet, so I haven't tried it yet, but that might be an option for you.

Thanks for your replies...

Diane, I've done a couple searches online for "Opulence Clear Liner Glaze" but can't find it using this search term. I'd really like to give it a try. Where do you order it from? Do you have an item number to help me locate it? (The closest glaze I was able to find is Opulence Matte Color Base 510. Could this be it?)

Bob, thanks for the attachment. I don't mix glazes yet but I'll save the recipe for when that day comes :)

Nancy, I'm very curious to know how Mayco's clear matte works for you. Please let me know!

Thanks, Lauren

I cannot find it anywhere online. I bought it nearly two years ago as a dry glaze and am reasonably certain it was called clear liner. I do see that Opulence sells a clear gloss, but the one I have is definitely satin. I will try to find the receipt.

Still looking for that receipt. I can always go over to Highwater and get more info. In the meantime, have you looked into Amaco Clear Satin HF-12?

Okay, it took me a trip to Highwater to figure out that is not an Opulence glaze. It is the Glossy Clear Liner Glaze from Mastering Cone 6 Glazes. I have fired it cones 5-7, about half the time with a slow cool. I have had no problems with it. I have rarely used it over underglaze.

Sorry you spent time looking for the Opulence that only existed in my imagination.

BTW, I know someone who raves about the Amaco.

I think the reason you are not having people post recipes for a clear satin glaze is that it's an oxymoron. Satin glazes are produced by a fine crystalline mesh during cooling and will never be clear. A lot of satin glazes are simply underfired gloss glazes and are prone to the problems of underfired glazes.

I just answered YOUR question in the post looking for a matte WHITE glaze. check it out. my PERSONAL opinion on putting any clear glaze on 112 clay is YUK. that is why i stopped using it years ago. a white matte glaze looks great on #112 though. i do not know anything about the #266. brushing a matte glaze is a possible problem since matte glazes do not like to be touched up. brush strokes disturb the way it settles into the clay.

not explaining well, brain is going......................
