Amaco Velvet (Leadfree)
 Amaco Velvet (Leadfree) underglaze, product summary
The velvet underglazes can be left unglazed leaving a matt surface, alternatively a clear glaze can be applied.

The firing range is from 1040 to 1220 deg C.

Apply 1 coat for a translucent finish, and 3 coats for opaque.

Details of sample preparation
The glaze samples are based on a 4cm square tile of a pale clay.
A diagonal stripe of red slip was then applied to simulate the effect on red clay.
The red clay is always shown in the bottom right hand corner.
For matt finishes, a clear glaze was applied on an opposite diagonal.

UNDERGLAZES (Brush-on) - We poured P1616 Casting slip into a tile mould and when dry brushed on 2 coats of UG38 Light Brown Contem underglaze with a hake on the right hand diagonal to represent red coloured clay and   biscuit fired to 1000 deg cent.  We brushed on 3 coats of the underglaze with a hake.  As these glazes can be left unglazed, we glazed with Potterycrafts Ltd P2017 across the diagonal to represent the effect on both light and red clays and re-fired to 1040 deg cent. in an electric kiln.
