Now more intense, with better working qualities, Underglaze Decorating Pencils are ideal for shading, fine line drawing or identification. Apply the underglaze pencil to bisque ware to create a variety of unique decorative designs. After decorating, dust lightly with a brush to remove excess particles.

Sponge on first coat of clear glaze lightly in order not to smear design. Let dry and brush additional coats of clear transparent Amaco glaze. This precaution is unnecessary if the glaze is to be applied by spraying, dipping, or pouring. Pieces are fired to the maturing temperature of the covering glaze. When spray application of a covering glaze is desired, first refer to individual listing to be sure that it may be sprayed safely.

Unlike regular pencils, care must be taken in sharpening Underglaze Pencils. Do not use a pencil sharpener. It is best to sharpen them with a knife or blade.

We use these mainly to mark test tiles to be fired. But others use for decorating bisque. Same excellent quality you get at ceramic suppliers, but about one-half the price.

Easy to search. Fast shipping. Follow up letter and e-mail were received after I placed orders. A+ online supplier for artists.
Rated by: Kathryn S. in Woodstock, IL
We have found dozens of uses for these great underglaze pencils. They are very easy for children to use in making designs or signing thier pieces. They are great for writing on fired underglaze when making bridal or baby shower plates. All of the guests sign the plate then it is glazed and the couple has a lasting memory of the occasion.
Rated by: Kelly M. in Austin, TX
While these are the first undeglaze pencils that I have ever used, they are wonderful for outlining and writing fine script on bisque. I am very grateful that AMACO has this product.
