One coat of Mayco Stroke & Coat® will create a translucent finish with subsequent coats adding opacity. We suggest 2-3 coats for full opacity and all over coverage. Let dry between coats. Stroke & Coat® glazes will fire to a gloss finish without clear glaze. However, if desired, a clear glaze (such as NT-CLR Clear One Dipping Glaze or S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing) can be added. For application on wet or leatherhard clay and firing to cone 04, colors will retain their vibrancy with huge time savings. We recommend leaving an area unglazed, such as the back or bottom of the unfired piece, to allow for out-gassing of the clay during the single firing process. Stroke & Coat® glazes have been formulated to mature at cone 06/05. Most Stroke & Coat® glazes will maintain their color at higher temperatures, especially reds, oranges, yellows, greens, and blues. Their performance at cone 6 is noted on each individual product label with any changes. We recommend testing on your clay and in your kiln prior to use. Results at cone 6 can be found at the end of the brochure. Stroke & Coat® glazes are AP Certified Non-Toxic, Food Safe and Dinnerware Safe when used according to manufacturer’s directions.
Stroke & Coat® glazes can be applied to wet or leatherhard clay as well as bisque, fired from cone 06 to 10, in oxidation or reduction. Apply for all over coverage or in a painterly style, Stroke & Coat® can be the star or play a supporting role in endless glaze combinations. It is the ideal product of choice for the studio, classroom, potter, and fine artists.
