Duncan Clear Glazes
Duncan CN2000D - Concepts
dipping glaze - for use over Concepts Underglaze for Bisque. Safe for food
I'm new at ceramics and so confused! What is the difference in all this stuff??
Nontoxic Fired Glazes
Duncan Crackle glazes are special effect glazes which crackle and craze giving an antique look to your finished ceramic piece. After firing you may wash the piece with dark acrylic color to show the crackles to their best advantage. When color is washed into all cracks, wipe the surface with a clean damp cloth to remove remaining color and leave the glaze shiny. Not recommended for use on food containers due to crackled surface.
Duncan Crystal glazes are beautiful glazes full of colored crystals which flow during firing. Paint the glaze on the ceramic bisque for the first two coats, then stir in the crystals for the final coat. Place more crystals near the top of the piece and fewer near the bottom where they may run off. Not recommended for food containers due to uneven surface which may harbor bacteria.
Duncan Envision glazes are safe for dinnerware and other food containers. They come in a variety of both translucent and opaque colors, and flow very little during firing. Three coats of Envision glazes must be applied with even strokes to completely seal and avoid brushstrokes in the final product. Use Envision glazes on plates, bowls, cups, cannisters, teapots, etc.
Duncan French Dimensions come in squeeze tubes for ease of application. They are non-moving and produce a raised effect over and under non-moving glazes. Great for creating a 'stained glass' effect. Paint your design outline on greenware, and fire to cone 04. Then 'fill-in' the design with Envision glazes and fire to cone 06. Fun, easy and so beautiful!
Duncan Satin glazes produce a soft sheen, not the hard shine so common in ceramics. Some are transparent, but most are opaque. Satin glazes are safe for food containers.

Discontinued - Mayco Pottery Coats simulate other clay bodies such as stoneware and terra cotta. Use as a base for other non-toxic glazes for interesting glaze combinations and techniques. Not labeled as dinnerware safe.

Overglazes - Gold, White Gold, Halo Gold, Mother of Pearl and Mardi Gras
primarily accent products applied over a fired glaze, then
kiln fired at a relatively low temperature (cone 018 - 020). Be sure underlying
glaze is overglaze compatible. When using precious metals and lusters on the
same piece, apply and fire the metallics first.
Non-fired products are used exclusively on cone 04
bisque and are for decorative purposes only. Apply a sealer to complete your
piece unless otherwise noted on each container. Such pieces should be cleaned
with a lightly dampened sponge, they are not dishwasher safe and should never
be immersed in water.
Always clean bisque with a damp sponge to remove clay dust prior to application of color.

Ultra Metallics are non-toxic, water-based metallic colors. Their colors are bright, won't tarnish and gleam like real metals. They can be mixed together and with other water-based nonfired colors to create more metallic colors and are self-sealing.
