Glaze - Mayco / Mayco Foundations Basic Opaque Colors FN1-FN10

Mayco Foundations Basic Opaque Colors FN1-FN10

Foundations Cone 06/05 glazes are available in a broad assortment of colors, opacities and textures.  

They easily serve as the basic "foundation" glaze for any ceramic studio - be that in a school, home or retail studio. 

Stock numbers that contain the prefix “FN-0XX” are opaque glazes, those with the prefix “FN-2XX” are Sheer (transparent and semi transparent glazes), while those that have the prefix “FN-3XX are Matte glaze.

Product Features and Attributes

  • Non-toxic, non-hazardous and food safe
  • Self Leveling Formula - glaze glides smoothly on bisque; no brush strokes will appear in the fired finish
  • Steadfast Application - Foundations will not dissolve or "pick up" previous coats of glaze
  • Stable, Non Moving Base - perfect for decorating upon, as with Majolica techniques
  • Intermixable - new shades can be created by mixing Foundation glazes with each other
  • Dries Quickly - speeds up your ability to handle or perform additional decorating
  • High Gloss Finish - does not need to be clear glazed

Application Recommendations:

The following application recommendations are based upon the original product development intent and use for the product.

Shake for 5-6 seconds before use. Dispense glaze onto a palette (tile, plate, etc.) and apply with your brush or decorating accessory of choice (sponge, stamp, etc.).

Foundations Opaque glazes were designed to mature at a shelf cone 06 (999° C).  When applying Foundations over a large surface area we recommend a broad, soft brush, such as a Soft Fan Brush. Try to get the brush fully saturated (loaded) and apply each coat in the same direction.

Make sure the glaze has dried thoroughly prior to firing. A medium ramp/firing rate is recommended (250°F per hour).

Foundation Basics are available in 4 oz. Pints and Gallons.
