Amaco Glazes & Brent Equipment
In 2019, Amaco celebrated their 100th anniversary supplying artists working in ceramics! It all started with the first American-made modeling clay, Permoplast, which is still being used in schools today. (We just hope it's a little fresher batch of clay they're using: that first batch has probably gotten a bit stiff by now!) Today, Amaco is a leader in the ceramic industry on an international scale. We're very happy to offer Amaco underglazes, glazes, and other products for your creative
Transparent Matte is a satin glaze that works well with surface decoration. If you spend all that time painting with Velvet Underglaze, make sure you use this to reduce the glare of a glossy glaze. It works great with any AMACO underglaze product. Apply thin over texture and surface decorations to prevent pooling. This glaze can become semi-opaque when it is thick. Safety Warning: Tableware producers must test all finished ware to establish dinnerware status, due to possible variations in firing temperature and contamination.
High Fire (cone 5-6) Texturizer is rutile based and when layered with other glazes it tends to produce a floating, flowing texture. It is Lead-Free and Non-Toxic...however; tableware producers must test all finished ware to establish dinnerware status, due to possible variations in firing temperature and contamination.
Change a brushing glaze to a dipping glaze! This is an anti-settling additive used to change your brushing glaze into a dipping glaze. Disregard the instructions on your glaze label and use the instructions on the jar for the amount of water and additive to add. One pint of suspendaid will adjust about 2.5 gallons of glaze. You must keep this product from freezing.
Gum Solution: As glazes and underglazes age, the binder can break down causing peeling, crawling and cracking. By adding gum solution one tablespoon per pint at a time, you can slow the drying time of the glaze making it brush easier and diminish cracking and peeling issues. Continue to add gum solution a little at a time until the problem is resolved. You may need to add additonal water as well to regain the right consistency for brushing (CMC based).
Dry glazes are formulated as dipping glazes and need gum solution to make them brushable. Once the glaze has been made, add ½ cup of gum solution per gallon of glaze.
Forty years ago, Robert Brent set out to build the industry's best potter's wheel. Dissatisfied with the design and performance of other wheels on the market, his wheels were the first to include electronic speed controls and DC motor technology with permanent magnets. Full production of Robert's wheel designs began in 1967. A few years later, in about 1973, Robert also designed his first kickwheel and invented the first slab roller. This year, as Robert Brent's company celebrates their 40th anniversary, Brent wheels are still among the "gold standards" of the industry and proudly manufactured by AMACO.
