 White Cascade
 


 Specifications
Product ID: PC-602
Title: White Cascade
Brand: Mayco
Category: Non-Toxic Glazes
Subcategory: Pottery Cascades


 

Pottery Cascade
Pottery Cascades™ are moving, flowing glazes that are commonly used above and beneath other glazes.  Cascades will intermingle with glazes with which they are combined and produce dynamic, blending and effects.
These glazes produce special effects when used in combination with other non-toxic glazes.
White Cascade intermingles with other glazes being used, introducing pure white to the colors you are using, blending with the color.
Clear Cascade produces a flowing effect and allows the color of the base glaze to show through.
Apply Cascade over or under non-toxic glaze to create spectacular effects.
We recommend that you do not apply Cascades to the lowest third of your piece as the glazes WILL move.  Vertical pieces require more attention to this detail than horizontal piecs.
Notes:
PC-602 White Cascade moves less than PC-603 Amber Cascade and PC-604 Black Cascade;  PC-601 Clear Cascade will move the most and should not be applied below the halfway point on a vertical shape.
Q: What tips do you have for applying Pottery Cascade?
A: Apply PC-602 White Cascade, PC-603 Amber Cascade and PC-604 Black Cascade with a brush in 1-3 coats. Can be dabbed on at random, evenly or unevenly to create different flow patterns using a sea wool sponge, for example. PC-601 Clear Cascade should be brushed on as you would apply a glaze. Apply 1-2 brushed coats over or under a non-toxic glaze. Do not go below the halfway point of the piece, as the PC-601 Clear Cascade flows more. Pottery Cascades can be applied between color, underneath and over colors for different effects.
Other conditions that could affect the performance of Pottery Cascades include
Can be applied between color, underneath and over colors for different effects.
Shape of the piece affects the performance of the glaze.
Firing temperature, ramp rate and a soaking period may enhance the flow patterns.
Avoid excess color toward the bottom of the piece to prevent drips from forming on the bottom of pieces.
Pottery Cascades are luster compatible.
Q: How do the "personalities" of each Pottery Cascade differ?
A: PC-602 White Cascade intermingles with the other glazes being used, introducing pure white to the colors you are using, blending with the color. PC-602 White Cascade has a minimum movement and will stay in the pattern that you apply it in. PC-603 Amber Cascade and PC-604 Black Cascade perform similar to the PC-602 White Cascade. PC-601 Clear Cascade produces a more flowing effect, and allows the color of the base glaze to show through. It can also alter your original color, creating a new color. It will form runs or you can direct the runs when you apply the product.
Q: Can Pottery Cascade be used by itself?
A: Yes, Pottery Cascades can be used alone.
Q: Are Pottery Cascades overglaze (luster) compatible?
A: Yes, but always test first before undertaking a major project.
