Saturated colour, dependability, and versatility make Velvets as popular for professionals as they are for children. Velvets fire true-to-colour as a Cone 05/06 underglaze or fired to Cone 6 (pictured). Some colours remain true as high as Cone 10.
Amaco Velvet Underglaze V-303 Terra Cotta is a warm cinnamon brown that is much darker with a clear glaze on top at any temperature. At cone 05, it is red-brown and reminiscent of the clay it is named after. It darkens at cone 5 and becomes a deep chocolate colour at cone 10.
Try two finish possibilities: When left unglazed these colours have the rich textural appearance of velvet; when covered with AMACO clear transparent matte of Clear Gloss they intensify in colour.
Can be easily applied to wet clay, greenware, or mature Cone 04 bisque (1077C)
