hi there,

has anyone used pearl-ex with underglazes or high fire glazes?

i am trying to figure out a way to incorporate these pigments into my new found wheel throwing addiction.

i am not sure how pearl-ex would react to the heat of a kiln.

greenware = no heat ( has not been fired in a kiln yet ).

bisque ware = 1,000 - 1,100 degrees ( cone 04 )

stoneware = 2,280 - 2,370 degrees ( cone 10 )

i am going to fire some test tiles this week as as an experiment,
any ideas would be appreciated.

maybe one of our moderators would have some input or know how i could get some info.......

Some of the Pearl-Ex colors are apparently capable of withstanding firing better than others. However, the pigment has a tendency to burn off the mica during firing ... do a test.
