Designed for cone 5/6 firing. Best results when applied thick. Glaze has been applied with squeeze tube for beaded texture. Glaze has been applied with 1 cm thickness for crackle texture. Best if applied onto underglaze. If applied to an active, melting glaze, gloop will ooze and will lose its beaded shape.
Jar is 16oz and weighs approximately 750g
How 2 Apply
1. Pour out any excess liquid when you open your jar. Gloop functions better with minimum water content.
2. Shake or mix gloop.
3. Gloop works best with a pudding or frosting consistency. If you want to dry out your gloop you can leave the lid off overnight.
4. Apply underglaze to your ceramics. Gloop sticks best to an underglaze base. It is not recommended to apply gloop to an active glaze because it will lose its shape.
5. Apply gloop to underglazed ceramics
- Fill squeeze tube with Dry Gloop and apply pea size balls to get the pearl droplet effect.
- Apply Dry Gloop as a thick paste to get the crackle effect. Paste should be roughly 1cm thick for optimal texture.
6. Fire to cone 5 or 6
7. To protect kiln shelves you can put a layer of kiln dust under your ceramics to ensure no gloop sticks to kiln shelves.
8. If you want to glaze the exposed underglaze you can apply a low fire glaze all over or simply around the gloop. Fire again to low fire temperature according to low fire glaze instructions. Gloop will not melt again at this low temperature and you will have a fully glazed piece. This is a good option if you intend to use the piece for food and need to glaze over the underglaze.
