Title: Brown Designer Liner
Brand: Mayco

Designer Liner is packaged in a 1.25 oz. squeeze bottle featuring a metal writer tip and comes in six rich, clay based pigments.  
Helpful Hints & Experienced Advice:
Does not need to be stirred.
Quick dry time.
Fires to a matte finish.
Use a clear or transparent glaze over or under DL to fire to a gloss finish.
Non toxic and Food safe.
May not be suited for dinner ware due to surface characteristics.
Can be used with a script liner brush for thinner, more detailed lines.
If applied too thick, DL may chip off or separate during the glaze firing.
Metal writer tip may clog due to drying. Use included needle to clear the pathways when necessary.
Cobblestone is a non-toxic textural glaze that forms a raised rectangular chip like texture when applied over another glaze.  The fired surface will feel rough to the touch; its appearance is reminiscent of dried earth.
Application Recommendations:
Shake for 5-6 seconds before use. Dispense glaze onto a palette (tile, plate, etc.) and apply 2 coats with a broad, soft brush, such as a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan Brush. Apply the second coat while the first coat is still damp: do not allow Cobblestone to dry between coats.
Pattern break-up is determined by the application direction of the brush stroke. Large break up heavier application, small breakup lighter application If application is too light the cobblestone will not break up. Reapplying and touching up will not achieve a break up Fire to shelf cone 06 or higher
Snowfall is a dimension glaze that creates a white, textured surface.  It is a non-moving glaze and, as such, application methods (brushing, detailer bottle/slip trailer) have an impact on the fired result.
Product Features and Attributes                  
Non-toxic
Food safe; however not recommended for food surfaces due to surface characteristics
Application Recommendations:
Mix well. Apply 2 or more coats over unfired glazes, shelf cone 04 bisque (1060°C), greenware or clay. Can be applied with a brush or sponge. For dimensional effects, apply using a Writer Tip. Fire to shelf cone 06 (999°C) Apply with a soft brush or with a sponge
Chalkboard Glaze is a non-toxic glaze that creates the look and feel of a real slate chalkboard.  The matte, porous finish can be written upon with chalk and erased with a felt eraser or damp sponge.
Wax Resist repels color from the coated area and fires off. It can be used on greenware or bisque, under, between or on top of any unfired color, to protect coated areas from color. It can be applied with a brush, sponge or spattered. Each method allows the artist to expand the options in the decorating process.
Product Features, Attributes and Application Recommendations:
Apply one generous coat of Wax Resist. Even a thin coat will repel color. Once an area is coated with Wax Resist a second coat will not adhere to the previous one; it will bead up on the first coat.
Once a coat of Wax Resist is applied it can only be removed by firing.
When glaze or color is applied over Wax Resist with an underlying unfired glaze, the “beads” of color need to be removed prior to firing. These can be removed by pouncing a clean, damp sponge over the waxed areas. Any color left on the wax that is used on top of an unfired glaze will adhere to the underlying glaze during the firing.
If several coats of color are being applied, it is easier to remove excess color after each coat rather than letting them dry and trying to remove them all after the final coat.
A sea wool sponge offers the most varied and dramatic effect to veil the wax and color.
Mayco recommends the brush or sponge be preconditioned with AC-525 Brush Cleaner to allow easier clean up. Condition the brush by saturating the hairs. Then remove any excess Brush Cleaner before using the Wax Resist.
If Wax Resist should dry in the brush it may be removed using AC-520 Solvent.
Liquid Mask is a rubbery emulsion that dries as a protective film when applied to greenware or bisque. It can also be used on top of fired or unfired glaze, over acrylic areas that have been sealed, and on fired metallics to prevent the area from being over-sprayed with a sealer. It is not recommended for use over One Strokes on greenware before they are fired. There is a tendency for the color to be lifted off with the Mask in this instance. The difference between this product and Wax Resist is how it is removed after use. Liquid Mask is peeled away when the project is finished and before the firing process. It does not burn away in the firing like Wax Resist. Liquid Mask can be used like Wax Resist for similar techniques. However, Mask is generally applied to areas that need to be blocked out in order for another color to be applied after the first.
Media is a general conditioning and thinning agent used for all water-based products. Mixed or blended with any water-based product, the product’s formulation keeps the color from drying out too quickly. It is the preferred media to mix with One Strokes, rather than water. It will recondition a color that has dried out making it workable again. This can be important if the water in your area has chemicals or minerals that may contaminate a product. If your water has a high iron content, for example, it could discolor your red glazes.
Clay Mender is used to stick wet or dry pieces of greenware together. It is more than just liquid clay. It has chemicals in it that makes it a stronger bond than the existing clay that it mends. It can be used on bisque to join two pieces together, but is primarily for greenware use.
