Underglaze transfer and stroke & coat


Recommended Posts

Has anyone used stroke and coat over an underglaze transfer? I have some mugs that I used underglaze transfer on and I’m wondering if I could use stroke and coat over it instead of just a clear glaze. Any pictures? Anyone done this with success? 
 

thanks!

Stroke and coat is a lowfire glaze that can fire to cone 10 if memory serves me and .......... Is opaque. Are you sure you want to cover your underglaze with it?

The color I have is pretty light and translucent (not all the way transparent) when using 2 or 3 coats so that's why I was asking if anyone had tried. I figured maybe the black underglaze would still show through the translucent jade color, but wanted to ask if anyone has tried it.

Stroke N Coat would be an expensive way to cover a pot. And they would be opaque if thick enough to cover well.

It's just 2 small mugs and I have yet to use any of the big bottle of stroke and coat so it wouldn't cost me anything .

If it’s transparent then definitely worth the trial. You might have a cool combination.  Maybe test tile time. My experience has only been with fairly opaque colors and layering with stroke and coat. The dragon on the mug below was created with layers and fired down.
