Learning About Duncan Concepts® Underglazes for Majolica, Bisque (unpainted ceramics) & Ceramics

Basic Instructions
1. Apply 1 coat for translucent designs.
2. Apply 3 coats for solid coverage.
3. Apply to shelf cone 04 bisque. (unpainted ceramics)
4. Fire to shelf cone 06.
5. Clean up with water.
6. Always refer to label instructions for proper application and usage.
 

Tips & Techniques
1. For Majolica, apply Concepts designs over 3 coats of Duncan SN 352 White Satin glaze.
2. For quick and easy solid coverage, try the drop 'n fill technique. Generously load a #6 or #8 round brush with Duncan Concepts underglaze for bisque and drop color onto desired area. Let dry.
3. Duncan Concepts for bisque colors mix and blend easily. Be creative and mix your own blend using two or more Duncan Concept underglaze colors.
4. Duncan Concepts underlaze for bisque works well up to cone 5-6. For high fire applications, we recommend firing a test piece because high fire clays vary.
 

Health & Safety
1. Nontoxic and lead-free.

Learning About Duncan E-Z Stroke® Translucent Underglazes for greenware & bisque (unpainted ceramics)

Basic Instructions
1. Apply 1 coat for translucent designs.
2. For rich depth and shading, apply additional coats.
3. Apply to greenware, unfired glaze, soft-fired bisque or bisque (ready to paint ceramics).
4. Fire to shelf cone 04 (06 if applied to glaze or bisque).
5. Clean up with water.
6. Always refer to label instructions for proper application and usage.
 

Tips & Techniques
1. Duncan E-Z Strokes underglaze for greenware or bisque may be applied over most underglazes, including  DuncanCover-CoatTM and other Duncan E-Z Stroke colors, allowing the base color to show through.
2. Duncan E-Z Strokes work well with high fire, cone 5-6 and some to cone 10. As high results vary, we recommend firing a test piece.
3. For majolica, apply Duncan E-Z Stroke underglaze design work over unfired White Satin glaze.
4. As a pure pigment-based paint, Duncan E-Z Strokes is the simplest form of fired color. You can use Duncan E-Z Strokes just like watercolors, in layers of transparent/translucent, bold, pure color. And, just like watercolors, you can inter-mix all the Duncan E-Z Strokes colors. Just as for typical watercolors, these paints must be mixed with water to be applied properly to greenware or soft fired bisque for the best application. Duncan E-Z Strokes are very fragile unfired, because when the water dries out of the pigment there are no binders holding it in place.Duncan E-Z Strokes underglazes fires into the ware at an 04 or hotter cone, although most of the pigments will hold true up to a cone 10. This broad firing range allows artists to use Duncan E-Z Strokes underglazes on almost all clay bodies
5. Use Duncan E-Z Strokes to tint clay slip, most glazes, fired Snow and other Duncan E-Z Stroke colors.
6. High definition and detail can be achieved by adding water to Duncan E-Z Stroke underglaze color and using a very fine brush.
 

Health & Safety
1. Nontoxic and lead-free.
2. Food safe when properly covered with a Duncan lead-free clear glaze.

5. Tint with Duncan E-Z StrokesTM or other Duncan Cover-Coat underglazes.
6. Fire to shelf cone 04.
 

Tips & Techniques
1. Duncan Cover-Coats underglazes may be tinted using Duncan E-Z Strokes® or other Duncan Cover-Coats, to create unique custom colors.
2. To create carved designs, sgraffito (gently scratch through the applied color to reveal the color or the clay body beneath it).
3. Painting with Duncan Cover-Coats is similar to painting with acrylic paints and is a great fired alternative for a tole and decorative painter. Colors are opaque and generally one color covers the one beneath it. They must be fired to ensure maturation and stability. Clear glazes over all shows the truest colors.

Basic Instructions
1. Apply one good coat of Duncan Write & Peel to desired areas.

2. Allow  Duncan Write & Peel to dry thoroughly before applying color over it.Duncan Write & Peel tends to dry on the surface before drying underneath.
3. When removing Duncan Write & Peel, lift the edge of the masked line with a tool or fingernail, and use fingertips to peel the mask off. In this way, the mask can usually be removed in one peice. However, always check for any small particles that may be left behind.

 

Tips & Techniques
1. For underglaze designs: Apply base coat of opaque underglaze color to greenware. Apply design with Duncan Write & Peel over base coat. When design is thoroughly dry, apply contrasting color over the ware. While color is still slightly damp, lift edge of masked line and peel off. Simple design work can be done with just one application of Duncan Write & Peel. More colorful designs can be acheived with additional layers of Duncan Write & Peel and color (except translucent underglazes) as long as the mask is removed after each color application.

2. For glaze designs: Write a design with Duncan Write & Peel directly on shelf cone 04
bisque or over 3 coats of dry, unfired glaze applied to shelf cone 04 bisque. When mask is dry, apply one coat of a second glaze color, then remove mask while glaze is still slightly damp. As with underglazes, successive applications of Duncan Write & Peel and 1 coat of glaze can be used.

3. For nonfired color designs, apply Duncan Write & Peel directly to bisque for protection of areas while applying adjoining colors or apply over a base-coat color. When mask is dry, apply the adjoining or second color, then remove mask while color is still slightly damp. Repeat as desired.

1. Be sure that the surface of your piece is free of dust, skin oils and lotions to ensure proper adhesion. Wipe surfaces with rubbing alcohol prior to applying the overglaze (except when used over crackle glazes.).
2. Always apply with a brush that is designated solely for use with Mother of Pearl to prevent contamination.
3. Do not stir or shake glaze.
4. Place a small amount of overglaze on a glazed palette.
5. For a swirled look, swirl on 1 coat, overlapping strokes.
6. For a smooth look, brush on all strokes in the same direction.
7. Correct application should produce a light blue tint.
8. Clean brush in Duncan Essence and let dry.
9. Overglazed ware can be fired while it is still wet. The kiln must be clean, well-ventilated (do not overload) and follow a normal firing schedule. Do not touch wet decoration and handle as little as possible until ware is fired to avoid smudging.
10. Stilt and fire Duncan Mother of Pearl to shelf cone 020.
 

Tips & Techniques
1. The appearance of Duncan Mother of Pearl will vary with the type of glaze over which it is applied. When applied over a gloss glaze, Duncan Mother of Pearl will add a shiny luster. When applied over a matte glaze, Duncan Mother of Pearl will add a dull luster.
2. If Duncan Mother of Pearl is accidentally applied on the wrong area, dip a cotton swab in Essence and wipe off misplaced color.
3. If any areas are missed, go back and touch up before Duncan Mother of Pearl dries.
4. If using a metallic overglaze and Duncan Mother of Pearl on the same piece, apply and fire the metallic overglaze first.
 

Health & Safety
1. Overglazes contain solvents and should be used in a well-ventilated area. Those susceptible to odors (such as pregnant women) shold be especially careful to work only in areas with an adequate ventilation system. During firing, odors are not dangerous but can be offensive. These odors quickly leave the area; however, you should not work in the kiln area during firing.
2. Duncan Overglazes can be used on surfaces that come into contact with food and drink. Care must be taken to avoid hard scrubbing when washing overglazed ware, because of the possibility of scraping off the thin layer of metal or luster. Treat your overglazed pieces as you would fine china. Although overglazed ware will take repeated washings in a dishasher, the overglaze will eventually wear away.

Health & Safety
1. Overglazes contain solvents and should be used in a well-ventilated area. Those susceptible to odors (such as pregnant women) should be especially careful to work only in areas with an adequate ventilation system. During firing, odors are not dangerous but can be offensive. These odors quickly leave the area; however, you should not work in the kiln area during firing.
2. Duncan Overglazes can be used on surfaces that come into contact with food and drink. Care must be taken to avoid hard scrubbing when washing overglazed ware, because of the possibility of scraping off the thin layer of metal or luster. Treat your overglazed pieces as you would fine china. Although overglazed ware will take repeated washings in a dishasher, the overglaze will eventually wear away.
3. Caution. Do not place pieces with metallic overglazes into a microwave oven. as with any metallic surface, they could cause sparks.
