Velvet Underglaze Painting

Learn More and make better pots
Adding color and decoration

Velvet underglazes can be painted on either greenware or bisque ware, and are used much like acrillic pant. They can be applied straight, or blended, or diluted. 

Velvet underglazes are an Amico, commercial glaze product. They are designed for cone 6 oxidation and below. However, some work well at cone 11 reduction. See which ones… we have tested them all! 

There will be hands on practice time in this workshop. We will provide some slabs to practice on, or you can bring a pot of your own.
