Cone 6 (1st photo): Dark Flux is a translucent brown color when used alone.
Cone 10 (2nd photo): The increase in temperature will cause more movement.
TIP: Chip shown over SW-119 Cinnabar.
The order in which you apply Mayco Flux – above or beneath another glaze – impacts the fired result. Designed to fire to cone 5/6, but can be fired to cone 9/10. Variables that influence movement include the fluidity of the companion glaze, application methods, thickness and orientation of application, number of coats, firing temperature and program. To prevent glaze run-off, avoid applying Flux to the bottom third of your ware. The unique material composite of Flux alters the character of the supplemental glazes, when applied in combination.
SW-401 Light Flux and SW-402 Dark Flux bear a Non-Toxic label according to FDA standards. Light and Dark Flux are Dinnerware Safe when used according to manufacturer’s directions and fired to the clay body’s vitrification temperatures. However, discretion and judgment should be used if the glaze surface is heavily textured, less from a safety and more from an aesthetic perspective. Note: Finishedware producers may be required to have their ware food safe tested prior to introducing into commerce.
