Cone 6 (first image): Alabaster is a semi-opaque white soft matte glaze that breaks over texture.

Cone 10 (second image): Color darkens to variegated light gray/purple.

TIP: When using this glaze, you will be able to pick up the characteristics of the clay body due to it’s white semi opaque finish. Combos really well with 2 coats of stroke and coat on top. It has a satin finish. If you like combos with Sea Salt, you will get similar results with Alabaster minus the crystals.


Stoneware matte glazes range from solid shades to those that create interesting color variations as they move and break. Application thickness is the key to making mattes work for you.


DRY GLAZE - 10lbs

 Dry formulas are added to water and used in buckets for dipping or pouring techniques. Many functional potters prefer dipping to painting for even coverage. The colors and formulas are identical in dry form, minus the added organic gums. Mayco Stoneware Dry glazes (SD is the prefix, it stands for Stoneware Dry) are great for pieces with a lot of surface texture and for layering techniques.
