Spectrum 500 Underglaze Series Cone 06-6
All colors in the 500 Underglaze Series are AP NON-TOXIC and LEAD FREE.
Unlike many other brands of underglaze we use a frit base rather than a slip (clay) base for our underglazes. The advantages to the user are that our underglazes can be applied on greenware or bisque and they can be used with or without a clear glaze covering. When used without a clear glaze cover they have a matte velvet like surface. However, when used without a clear glaze cover they are not considered dinnerware safe because the rough surface can be difficult to clean and can encourage bacteria growth.
Our color chart shows the unglazed color in the upper left half of the tile and the color when covered by a clear gloss glaze in the lower right half of the tile. The color chart samples were fired at cone 05.
Our underglazes generally have good temperature stability up to cone 6 and for many colors to cone 10. When fired hotter than cone 04 you may get small color variations from those shown on our charts, so please test them for your application. Some of our underglaze colors will start to look glossy without any clear glaze cover at cone 5.
Please note that the color samples shown may vary from actual colors. Every effort was made to make them as accurate as possible however due to many factors including individual monitor settings these examples should only be used as a reference point.
