Blue Moon is one of the Texas Two Step Overcoats, meaning it can be layered with Licorice, Coffee Bean, or Brick Red to produce an oilspot effect. It is also a beautiful soft blue on its own, making it suited to decorative and functional ware. The Texas Two-Step Oilspots are a specialized series that use pairs of glazes to create unique effects. Anywhere that one of the five overcoats is laid on top of Licorice, Coffee Bean, or Brick Red, a stunning spotted pattern will appear during firing. Thicker applications lead to bigger spots. Try using wax resist after the first layer to create negative space designs.
