Come Play With Your Glazes!

Georgies Northwest Garden Interactive Pigment Totem

Every one of our Interactive Pigments is a fresh catalyst for your creativity! Starting from their rich, warm earth tones, these pigments create different results with each new clay or glaze you use with them. Pat Horsley once said that "Nothing is the same, and everything matters." Those words have never been more true than with Interactive Pigments!

  • Use them under your glazes for solid color coverage or design work.
  • Use them with wipe-back techniques for antiqued finishes to enhance texture, either alone or under a glaze.
  • Use them over raw glazes (dry but unfired) for majolica techniques at cone 6.
  • Use them with wax resist and multiple glazes for inlays and other design techniques.

No matter how you use them, you'll get color (or texture, or both!) results new and different from what you've seen before with your glazes. Check out the Pigment Plates below for just a handful of the possibilities.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE: Shake and stir well. Apply only 1 coat with a soft brush. Pigments may be thinned with water to lower the concentrations of color. As with all ceramic materials, do not eat, drink or smoke while working with clays or glazes.

FOOD SAFETY & HANDLING INSTRUCTIONS: Food safety for the Interactive Pigments is variable, depending on your application, the glaze, and intensity of pigment in the glaze. When the surface of the glaze has a high metallic sheen, or when the pigmented surface looks dull (and the glaze by itself wasn't), these are clues that the finish will not be foodsafe. If you like these effects, keep them on the outside of your vessels, for decoration only.
