Sunstrokes underglazes have a gloss finish even when fired without the clear glaze.¬† Therefore if they are applied on the bottom of the piece, they must be stilted when fired or they will stick to the kiln shelf.¬† Clear glaze smoothes out and brightens the colors.¬†
Apply two or three even coats to bisque. Clear glaze smoothes out and brightens the colors. When using a clear glaze, it must be applied over the decorated object before firing the underglaze. Amaco LG10 or F10 can be applied over Sunstrokes for one stoke application and all-over coverage. Apply one even coat on a mature Cone 04 bisque.¬† Fire to Cone 06-05.
These underglazes are now AP Non-Toxic.¬† They are dinnerware safe when covered by a dinnerware safe glaze such as LG10, F10 and HF9.
* If left unglazed they should not be used for dinnerware.
