Ceramics @ Home
$7.00 – $10.00
Dala’s Ceramics @ Home is a thermo setting water-based paint that is cured in the oven. It is an ideal product for decorating glazed ceramics, pottery, kitchen and bathroom tiles, glass, tin or enamel. It forms a hard scratch heat and chemical resistant film if cured correctly. Painted glazed ceramics will withstand continuous dishwasher cycles (cool to medium heat cycle)
Ceramics @ Home colours are transparent, making them ideal for permanent Glass Glaze work. If you intend to outline your work with Dala Glass Liner, make sure that you cover the liner completely with the paint or cover it with Ceramics @ Home varnish, Cure glass work as per curing instructions
For opacity when working on dark surfaces, mix small amounts of Ceramics @ Home Opaque Medium to your colours. White can also be used for opacity mic this with your colour to create opaque pastels. The Ceramics @ Home Pearlescent colour mixed with colours will give you subtle mother of pearl hues. If your project is to be continuously washed or handled, coat it with a layer of the Ceramics @ Home clear varnish.
It is imperative for the continued wash, rub, scrub, scratch heat and chemical resistance of your product that it is correctly cured. Cure ceramics at 150’C for 40 minutes. Temperatures in excess of 150’C will improve the hardness of the coating but may lead to pigment discoloration. Test these higher temperatures on a sample tile.
