Chrysanthos Underglazes

Use the following steps to ensure a satisfactory result after the firing.

  1. Each bottle needs to be mixed thoroughly via shaking or stirring with a clean palette knife. Add brushing medium or water if paint appears too thick and difficult to mix.
  2. Squeeze the required amount onto a tile or paint palette. It is not recommended to continuously dip the brush into the paint container, as this may contaminate the color.
  3. If necessary, stir in more brushing medium to achieve the desired consistency. The paint should flow from the brush and not stick to the bristles.



Chrysanthos Underglazes may be applied to greenware or bisque. Refer to the picture guide below on firing and glazing stages.

They may also be applied to mid fire and stoneware bodies and then glazed.


  • One coat creates a transparent finish, two coats a semi-transparent and three coats an opaque finish.
