 NO-FIRE SNOW
 


 Specifications
Product ID: AS964
Title: NO-FIRE SNOW
Brand: Duncan
Category: Non-Fired
Subcategory: Other Non-Fire Accessories


 

Duncan's Brush Cleaner is a must-have in properly caring for and getting longtime use out of your brushes! Clean and condition them with ease, without harming or removing color from the bristles.
Duncan’s Thin & Shade - Ever get frustrated when your design dries before you get it quite right? Buy some time with a bottle of Thin ‘n Shade™! This versatile product is a water-based medium that prolongs the drying time of colors so they remain workable longer for use. Thin ‘n Shade™ can be used with any water-based ceramic color, fired or non-fired product and can act as a purer thinning agent in areas where water systems contain contaminants that may affect ceramic color results.
No-Fire Snow
These nontoxic, non-fired self-sealing snow products produce realistic snow and textured effects on finished pieces. No-Fire Snow has a smooth, marshmallow-crème consistency.
Glittering No-Fire Snow with fine glitter particles has a consistency of whipped cream.
No-fired Snow can be applied to both non-fired products and on fired glaze surfaces. In addition to ceramic surfaces, no-fired snow products can be used on wood, plastic, glass, Styrofoam®, baskets, grapevine wreaths and more.  So let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
Quik-Crackle® is a nontoxic, water-soluble medium that you can use between two non-fired, water-based colors to crack the top color and reveal the basecoat, giving your piece that delightfully refined appearance!
How to use Quik-Crackle®
1. Base coat piece with OS Opaque Acrylics, Ultra Metallics or Liquid Pearls.
2. When base coat is dry, apply a smooth, even coat of Quik-Crackle®. Clean brush immediately with water and Duncan Brush Cleaner, making sure no Quik-Crackle® is left in the metal ferrule. Let Quik-Crackle® dry for 20 mintues to one hour. Quik-Crackle® can set overnight and the same exciting results will be achieved.
3. Working quickly, use a clean, soft brush to apply an even coat of a contrasting top-coat color over the dry Quik-Crackle®. Choose top-coat color for best results from the Bisq-Stain Opaques line. Once the top-coat color has been applied, do not reapply more color after cracking starts. Cracking time may vary from color to color. Wait a few minutes for cracking to start.
Tips & Techniques
1. Cracking follows the direction in which the top-coat color was applied, that is, if color was swirled on, the cracks swirl. Straight strokes will give your project straight cracks.
2. Achieve large, bold cracks by applying a heaver top-coat color.
3. Achieve fine cracks by applying a thin top-coat color.
4. Achieve a fine, web cracking by sponging on top-coat color.
5. Flat Opaque brushes give the best results when applying Quik-Crackle®.
6. Take your time with the project; be sure all phases are properly set or dry before proceeding to the next step.
7. When cracking has completed and the top-coat is completely dry, you can add brushstrokes or design work.
8. Seal the project with a spray or brush-on sealer.
