AMACO® Velvet Underglazes

AMACO® Velvets semi-translucent underglazes offer two finish possibilities. When left unglazed they have the appearance of velour or velvet. They will assume a soft, satin matte finish when glazed with AMACO® Transparent Matt glaze and will intensify in color when covered with an AMACO® Clear Transparent Gloss glaze.

Velvets 380-384 have a unique formula that makes them very versatile. They can be used in detailed design work as a Con 05/06 underglaze or they can be fired up to Cone 6 and maintain their intensity and brightness. All the Velvets are very rich colors and can be used for an all over coverage similar to an opaque underglaze. They fire true to color as applied from the jar and may be intermixed to create a palette of hundreds of colors.

The colors may be brushed (1) on greenware which is to be fired before applying a covering glaze or (2) on a mature Cone 04 (1940°F, 1060°C) bisque, then a covering glaze applied. Velvets will tolerate a wide firing range with the recommended firing temperature being that of the clay body being used.
