Peacock Feather Effect with layering PC glazes
by AMACO brent
Certain glazes in combination will flux strongly and flow. Layering these active fluxing glazes with dots or stripes can make the flow a decorative element.
Active fluxing glazes
We've found that certain combinations of Potters Choice glazes, when layered, give an effect much like peacock feathers. These active fluxing glazes can result in beautiful effects, especially when the layering is done in a dot or stripe pattern.
Brush on 3 coats of glaze and let dry to the touch.
Use a slip trailer to apply second glaze
Fill your slip trailer with the second glaze. Apply as dots, stripes, or another pattern.
