Bronze-looking glaze


Recommended Posts

Search głazy.org for bronze glaze to mix your own or for a commercial glaze,  Amaco makes one, saturation gold I believe. Be aware, generally these are not considered food safe glazes.

If you're looking at commercial glazes, Coyote's Bronze Temmoku might get you close but, as Callie indicated - application and firing (and clay body) will affect results. 

This pot is Standard's 112 (speckled brown), with 3 brushed-on coats of glaze, fired to apprx ^5-1/2.  (The small spots that look a bit like water spotting, are from the 'speckles' in the clay and, presumably, would not be there on a non-speckled body.)

Do you have any tips around firing and application?

I thin the glaze, Palladium, and I apply 4-5 coats. (By thinning it I can brush out the brush marks.) My work is slip cast cone 6 porcelain. I think the porcelain helps the glaze melt better and the smooth surface of the clay form contributes to the smooth surface of the glaze.
