What is Flowing Art?
It is a specialty product that is clear in color and flows in the firing.
Flowing Art can be applied over a colored glaze for spill/drip effects. When doing so you would need to apply 2 coats in the area of choice with a brush or with tip adaptor on 2 oz. squeeze bottle. The 2 oz. size bottles are sold with a cap and tip accessory included.
It can be used in conjunction with CSP40 White Drape. It is recommended that you use the Flowing Art under the White Drape for a more open or lacy effect. The Flowing Art moves in the firing also.
Suggested Uses: Choose a piece of ware that is upright where the product has room to move and gravity to help the flow.
- Apply 2-3 coats of a colored glaze from the CFE glaze line. This is a base glaze to start your pattern and can be applied all over the piece or in parts. Refer to techniques on web site for items shown on this page.
- With a brush or tip/bottle apply 2 coats of a design or drip pattern at the top of ware or where colors meet. Flowing Art will move, flow and separate depending on the amount of glaze applied on top of it.Stay 1-2 inches away from the bottom of ware.(Example shown at top is of 3 coats of CGE540 Royal Navy Blue glaze all over the piece. Create 2 coats drip pattern with tip applicator on 2 oz. bottle of Flowing Art. With a brush apply a heavy coat of CGE561 Kelly green in a different drip pattern.)
- White Drape can be applied over the Flowing Art for a lacy white pattern. It will open up more for a lacy pattern and move more in the firing.
Stilt and fire to witness cone 06. If unsure about the movement of the white drape, put a bisque tile or a broken piece of the shelf under the piece you are firing to protect your shelf from drips.
