Basic Types & Techniques of Ceramic Glazing

Glazing is a way to add color to your pottery. It adds a nice touch of finesse to ceramic pieces, giving them beautiful vibrant colors, bold textures and a smooth finish.

There are many ways to apply nail polish, some more complicated than others.

By watching this video, you can learn the different types of ceramic glazes and application techniques to achieve a wide variety of effects.

The creator of this video will give you all the necessary information about ceramic glazes to facilitate their use.

One of the best things about ceramic arts is the almost limitless ways you can express your creativity. The ceramic glaze allows you to add unique colors and textures to your pieces before firing.

It's a great way to design a piece that matches your artistic style while defining the look you'd like your finished ceramic pieces to have.

Some of these methods are:


Brushing is another method that can be used for both basecoat and decoration. Most brush glazes are formulated for use on cookies.

You can use glaze on greenware, but it can be tricky, especially for beginning potters. The organic matter in the clay has not yet been burned off. This can cause problems with the glaze as gases from the clay to try to escape.

Choosing the right brushes is also very important. Large flat brushes are suitable for large rooms. Small, round-tipped brushes are best for patterns.

To help prevent scratches, it is always best to use brushes with soft bristles. Chinese brushes are good for base coat and cause less streaking. For more information on frosting brushes, check out my Best Frosting Brushes page.


Splatters are another fun way to apply to frost. The application is mainly used with a hard brush. Spattering is a very simple process to achieve glaze splatters or spore-like streak patterns.

You can decorate your ceramic pieces by splashing them with a base coat of one color and then splashing the glaze with contrasting colors.

Multiple bright colors on white look amazing. Gold, silver and white look beautiful on black and dark blue. Black splashes look great on solid yellow, red, green and white.

Another fun way to splatter is to hit the brush directly on the ceramic. It also gives an abstract look to your pottery.


Using sponges as a medium for glazing can produce interesting textures. For this, you can use synthetic and natural brushes. The sponges easily absorb the glaze and help to apply it fairly quickly to the ceramic works.

Sponges can be used to create repeating patterns, such as those around the edges of plates, and quickly create simple patterns, such as flowers, bushes, leaves, clouds, etc.

Synthetic sponges have an advantage over natural sponges in that they can be cut to create a particular shape or pattern.

The patterns you are trying to create also affect the type of sponge you need. Fine grit sponges can create intricate patterns.

Larger, firmer and rougher sponges can be used to cover a large area. It is possible to produce depth in the decorative patterns by overlapping the sponge marks with another layer.

Sponges are generally used to create patterns on already glazed pottery. However, you can use a sponge to make a base coat to create a fresh texture for your ceramic.
