Unlucky Penny (Pint)
Unlucky Penny is an iridescent iron red glaze. It displays mottled shades of shiny copper, rust red and black. Unlucky Penny is red where thick and breaks black over texture. This glaze will work with a normal firing, but a slow cool could help enhance crystal growth in the glaze. This glaze is very stable, even when applied too thick or overfired.Note: this glaze has a very distinct odor. It's not a good odor. It's still one of our favorite glazes, so we're willing to overlook it, but we thought you might like to know.
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.
