MAYCO SPECIALTY GLAZES
Classic Crackles™ add a level of sophistication and dimension to your designs. The “cracked” effect has traditionally been used to create a vintage or antique appeal. Increase complexity by using in combination with other glazes or design work.
Classic Crackles™ are non-toxic, low fire (cone 06) glazes that are designed to “craze”; that is, develop subtle surface cracks in the finished glaze. This cracked effect has traditionally been used on home décor pieces by designers looking to create a vintage or antiqued appeal to their pottery.
Classic Crackles™ are non-toxic, low fire glazes designed to create crackle patterns during the firing process. Perfect for home décor pieces. To highlight the cracks, after firing wipe an acrylic or ink over the ware and wipe off, allowing the ink to fill the cracks.

High Fire looks at Low Fire Temperatures
Pottery Cascade™ are moving, flowing glazes, commonly used under or over other glazes to create reactions and movement. Can be applied randomly or uniformly, brushed or dabbed on with a sponge. The colored cascades – white and amber – add a tinge of color to glazes with which they are used. Use Pottery Cascade™ as a flux with Elements™ to create movement in the colors. Great visual effects are create when added under, over or in-between Elements™ or Element™ Chunkies.Cascades are perfect for the low fire designer seeking to create the looks achieved at higher temperatures. Their variability insures that no two designs will be exactly alike.
Apply 1-2 coats with a brush or sponge, under or over another glaze. You can influence the direction of the flow or create a pattern by how you apply the glazes. Allow to dry thoroughly. Fire to cones 06/05. To prevent the glaze from running off your vertical pieces do not apply Pottery Cascades to the bottom third of the piece.

Cobblestones create a textured “cobbled” surface when fired. Apply over another glaze and during the firing process, a shattered pattern of raised, irregular chips will emerge. The underlying glaze will appear in the cracks. To create colored Cobblestones, brush Stroke & Coat® glaze of choice over the white Cobblestone and fire.
