Sunburnt Banana is a shiny medium yellow glaze. What color is a sunburnt banana you ask? That's hard to say, so we've photographed this glaze next to some other yellow stuff for scale. We think it's more yellow than butter, but less yellow than a lemon. It's somewhere in the vicinity of the ubiquitous yellow grout sponge, or maybe a Ticonderoga #2 pencil.
Sunburnt banana is made with oxides instead of stains, making this glaze reactive and giving it a greater depth of character than many yellow glazes offered by our competitors. This glaze is very stable, even when applied too thick or overfired.
Directions for use
Shake well before use. Apply three flowing coats to ware that has been bisque fired to △05/06. Allow glaze to dry between coats. This glaze is recommended for light-colored clay bodies. 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.
