Kera Engobes


High opacity Kera Engobes provide a background colour to block out, or provide contrast with, greenware and bisque and particularly terracotta.

Wide firing (1060C to 1120C , Cone 04-02), allows flexibility with clays and firing temperatures.  Unlike traditional Engobes, our composition allows Kera Engobes to be applied to Greenware or bisque with cracking.

Smudge resistant colours – 21 different colours all fully intermixable to achieve a greater range of colours and blends.  Dries to a hard, yet porous, surface that can then be decorated with printing, sgraffito, underglaze, glaze, pens, trailers and clear glazes. Food safe when clear glazed.

High quality pigments develop brighter colours for your designs.

Available in 250ml, 500ml, 1L, 5L, 10L, 20L and kits

Easy water wash up.
