Stir the glimmer glaze thoroughly and apply the first coat on the bisque ware with a brush. Ideally, biscuit fire at more than 1000∞C in order to avoid bubbles in the glaze.
When the glaze is dry, apply another coat and if necessary a third (depending on how thick the individual coats are). After the glaze has dried completely, the special glimmer effect is reached by wiping the surface with a slightly damp cloth. This brings out the glimmer effect. Ideally you move the cloth in circles exerting slight pressure. You can fire at 900∞C – 1060∞C.†
The glimmer effect is especially beautiful at 900∞C the colours of most glaze however are at their most intense at 1040∞C. You can create beautiful vibrant shiny colours by glazing over with transparent BOTZ 9016.†
