How to get Wood color glaze

Recommended Posts


Looks like an iron oxide wash on a cream/tan clay body. Iron oxide and water (can add a little flux if needed), put on bisqued surface and wiped back with damp sponge. Leaves deposit in the texture and takes it off the high points. Doesn’t look like a glaze has been put on over the wash. Fired to mid-fire temps. Oxidation will give you a lighter highlight, whereas reduction will darken them.  Experience/experimentation will tell you how much to wipe back and how to eliminate streaks.

Hope this helps.
