Details: Penguin Pottery Stains are a great way to add color to your clay, clay slip, glazes and underglazes. Our stains can be fired at all temperatures (low fire, mid fire, high fire). You are no longer constrained by what glaze manufacturers think should be the available colors! Our stains can be combined to achieve a huge range of fascinating colors! The more stain you add to your glaze, dry clay, or slip, the darker the color will be.  How much stain you add it's ultimately up to each person's personal preferences.  Some useful (general) guidelines to keep in mind are that when using dark colors, you don't need to use as much stain as when using light colors.  So for black, dark blues or greens, 5-10% of the total weight is usually a good place to start.  For light colors, you should try 10-20%.  In the end, we recommend that you always do some testing in small batches, so you can identify the best mix for the “look” you're trying to achieve.  But this is the fun part of using stains!  So enjoy and have fun! Directions for Use: When working with chemicals in powder form, we highly recommend wearing a respirator mask. It is important to protect yourself from dust inhalation.
