If you're looking for a low fire Cone 05 glaze that produces unlimited textures during firing, try Amaco Textured Alligator Glazes. No two pieces glazed are ever alike due to the many variations in texture which occur in firing. Amaco Alligator Glazes are supplied in liquid, ready-to-use form in pint jars. These glazes must be applied on a mature Cone 04 (1971ºF, 1077ºC) bisque and then glaze fired to Cone 05 (1911ºF, 1044ºC).
(O) = Opaque (TL) = Translucent.

LT-22 Tahitian Blue - It is recommended firing Tahitian Blue at Cone 06 (1855ºF, 1013ºC) because it flows more than other glazes in this series.
