Institute AP (Approved Product) seal
certifies this product to be safe for
use by all ages.

*If left unglazed, AMACO® Velvets should not be used on surfaces which come in contact with food or drink. The Velvets series has been tested and approved as dinnerware safe when fired under AMACO® clear glazes LG-10.

Velvets V-380 through V-384 and V-387 through V-391 are formulated with encapsulated red, orange, and bright yellow pigments which make them very color/temperature stable. 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.

The colors may be brushed on greenware which is to be bisque fired before applying a covering glaze or on a mature Cone 04 (1971°F, 1077°C) bisque, then a covering glaze applied. For opaque coverage by brushing, the consistency of the color in the jar is correct.

Velvets tolerate a wide firing range with recommended firing temperature being that of the clay used. Click here to see how Velvets look when fired to Cones 5 and 10.
