AMACO Velvets semi-translucent underglazes offer two finish possibilities. When left unglazed they have the appearance of velour or velvet. They will intensify in color when covered with an AMACO Clear Transparent or Gloss glaze. 
They can be used in detailed design work as a Cone 05/06 underglaze or they can be fired up to Cone 6 and maintain their intensity and brightness.
All the Velvets are very rich colors and can be used for an all over coverage similar to an opaque underglaze. They fire true to color as applied from the jar and may be intermixed to create a palette of hundreds of colors.
Application Methods
Brushing - Keep brush fully loaded at all times. For solid coverage, as in backgrounds, apply 3 or 4 coats of colour, working in opposite directions with each layer of colour. Wait for water sheen to disappear between coats.
Sponging - Pour colour onto a glazed tile. Saturate a slightly dampened fine sponge with colour and lightly pat onto the green ware or bisque , allowing the first coat to dry thoroughly before applying the next. Solid back-grounds can be quickly achieved by using this method which eliminates the streaking that often appears when using a brushing method.
Airbrushing - Dilute colour with water to the consistency required for a smooth spraying application. For solid colour coverage airbrush 3 to 4 coats, for shading, one coat is generally sufficient.
Antiquing - Dilute 2 parts colour with 1 part water, for an antiquing solution. Apply to bisque with as large a brush as possible. Allow to dry. Remove the colour from the large areas with a moist sponge, rinsing and turning the sponge often to produce clear highlights - exposing the embossed design.
