Sahara High Fire Glazes work well and produce interesting effects when fired in reduction as well as in oxidation (reduction firing not recommended for HF-26).

HF-26 and HF-32 should be applied thicker than other glazes in this series. For best results: if brushed they will need three coats, then clay and glaze may be matured at the same time, at the recommended firing temperature of Cone 5 (2205°F, 1207°C).

A zinc-free, clear, transparent high fire glaze (HF-9) is also available. Because the presence of zinc in a glaze formula may change the appearance of certain colors (green, black, gray, etc.), a zinc-free clear is very important for application over underglaze decoration. Any variation in color intensity of the underglazes will then depend on the individual color stability at Cone 5.
