USAGE VARIATIONS AND FAQS
Why did the glaze fire hazy?
Over application will cause a hazy fired finish. We recommend one coat of the Speckta-Clear over other glazes and no clear glaze on top.
Why do the sparkly specs in Star Dust look dark and not metallic?
Star Dust looks best over darker colours to give the contrast between the specks and the background colour.
