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.
Straw Velvet Underglaze is a rich sunflower yellow that is a strong ochre at cone 05 and becomes lighter at cone 5. At cone 10, it is even lighter and less saturated. Overall, it maintains its colour well at any temperature and becomes richer and darker under a clear glaze.
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)
