Iron Chun Powder P2560
These chun-type glazes produce many beautiful effects, particularly when used over our chun base.
Apply the chun base glaze P2563 fairly thinly. Before bone dry, dip into the appropriate chun glaze. Double dipping the top part of the pots again in the chun glaze can produce interesting variations. Adding Calcium Chloride provides better suspension of chuns and gives better diping control. By nature these glazes are free flowing and a faster firing cycle is recommended (150-200∞C /hr)
However, when a Chun glaze is applied over the Chun Base it can create the glaze surface to bubble-making unsafe for food use. Therefore they are 'chemically' foodsafe but practically there may be problems with the final glaze.
