Cobblestones create a textured cobbled surface when fired. Apply over another glaze and during the firing process, a shattered pattern of raised, irregular chips will emerge. White Cobblestone can be tinted with Stroke & Coat by applying one coat of Stroke and Coat on top of the damp cobblestone.
Cone 06: A white shattered pattern of raised, irregular chips will emerge. The underlying glaze will appear in the cracks.
Cone 6: Glaze will bead up on the surface of the piece. If applied over another glaze the texture flattens with similar cobblestone pattern.
While Cobblestones can be applied over a previously fired glaze the cracked pattern will become more pronounced if applied on an unfired glaze.
- Shake for 5-6 seconds before use.
- Dispense glaze onto a palette (tile, plate, etc.) and apply 2 coats with a broad, soft brush, such as a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan Brush.
- Apply the second coat while the first coat is still damp: do not allow Cobblestone to dry between coats.
- Pattern break-up is determined by the application direction of the brush stroke. Large break up heavier application, small breakup lighter application.
- If application is too light the cobblestone will not break up. Reapplying and touching up will not achieve a break up.
- Fire to cone 06 or higher.
