Kitchen Sink: Electric Iguana
At Midnight Ceramics we run countless tests in our pursuit of new and exciting glazes. Sometimes we make something that is really great, but not quite ready for production. Rather than waste these happy accidents, we would rather send them to you!
We're working on a glaze that doesn't run no matter how thick you put it on, and this kitchen sink is the result of that testing. This glaze would be great for making gooey viscous glazed peices. Put it on as thick as you want and let big luscious drips collect at the bottom of the piece. It's not really an electric iguana color (but who am I to say? I've never seen an electric iguana). I just really liked that name.
This glaze cannot be reproduced.
This glaze is very stable when overapplied or overfired. (five coats of glaze were applied to the test tile before being fired to Cone 5 with a natural cool.)
Directions for use
Shake well before use. Apply three flowing coats to ware that has been bisque fired to △05/06. Glaze fire to △5/6. Allow at least ¼” of bare clay at the bottom of the ware to account for running. It is highly recommended that you run a vertical test tile before applying to your ware. Differences in application and firing can make this glaze more or less runny, possibly damaging kiln furniture or artwork.
This glaze is lead and cadmium free and is food safe when applied and fired in accordance with directions. Dinnerware producers must test their ware as differences in application and firing can produce different results.
