Engobes

White Earthenware / Stoneware 
An engobe is a liquid clay which is primarily used for brushing or spraying over greenware and bisque fired pots to give a high quality finish, or simply used for decorating. The Terra Cotta engobe is especially useful when you don't want to risk contamination between white and terra cotta clays. Sprayed or brushed on it gives rich terra cotta appearance.

Firing Temperatures: 

White Earthenware / Stoneware (CB21) 1060 - 1280C
