Soft Touch underglazes are low-cost, lead-free, barium-free, and low-fore underglazes. The prepared underglaze is packaged in a 1 lb. plastic ready-to use container. 1 lb. makes approximately 1 1/8 of a pint of liquid underglaze. Ideal for projects where students paint their designs, then painted pieces are simply dipped in a clear glaze to cover to make a piece food-safe. These underglazes can be dipped, brushed, or poured on either greenware or bisque.
Mixing Instructions: Pour 1 1/2 cups of water into the container and reseal. Hold the container with both hands, one on the lid and one on the bottom, and shake vigorously for several minutes until all the solids are off the bottom and the underglaze looks mixed. Let sit overnight. For best results, sieve. Adjust the water to your desired consistency and you are ready to use. Apply two coats for full coverage. These underglazes can be dipped, brushed, or poured on either greenware or bisque.
Firing tips: For a glossy finish, apply two coats of Bright Ice Clear Transparent, BI-50, and fire to cone 05. We have had great success with Soft Touch at firing temperatures up to cone 8 on a variety of Rovin Ceramics clay bodies. Do not use Soft Touch underglazes with Amaco clear glazes.
