Also known as “The Wonder Glaze” because of its versatility of use. The unique Stroke & Coat® formulation combines the performance properties of an underglaze with the fired finish results of a gloss glaze.
Stroke & Coat® glazes can be applied to earthenware, stoneware, terracotta, or porcelain surfaces of clay or bisque and can be fired from cones 06 to 6, with most colors reaching cone 10 in oxidation or reduction fire.
Stroke & Coat® is a heavily pigmented, viscous glaze line that can be used for brush strokes or opaque coverage. Use these glazes to create intricate, detailed designs and butt up to one another without colors moving. When used in a majolica process, Stroke & Coat® will not move nor blend with the colors beneath. Stroke & Coat® colors are intermixable, allowing artists to create custom shades. Thin with water or media to create a “wash” or watercolor style of design. Because the liquid color is consistent with the fired color, artists will have no trouble visualizing finished results as they create. Performing just as their counterpart, Speckled Stroke & Coat® glazes are an enhanced version of popular Stroke & Coat® colors. The addition of small specks of color to the base glaze provides a fun visual interest that does not melt or flow during the glaze firing.
AP Certified Non-Toxic, Food Safe and Dinnerware Safe when used according to manufacturer’s directions. Stroke & Coat® glazes are suitable for artists of all ages. And because of its versatility, it is the ideal product of choice for studio, classroom, potter or fine artist.
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.
