Create Dimensional Surface Texture

sc familyStroke & Coat® Accents is a dimensional glaze that can be used to create raised designs, outlines, stripes, dots, lines and squiggles. It can be applied directly on clay, unpainted bisque, or over other glazes.  Clear glaze may be applied if desired. Unlike most other dimensional glazes, which tend to flatten out during firing, Accents fired results will remain clean and crisp.


Available Sizes & Color



SA-002 Black Stroke & Coat® Accents' formula contains more clay than regular gloss glazes.  The clay provides support during application and firing, allowing for raised areas as high as ¼".


Product Features

Extraordinary Detail

Create lines that are extremely fine to bold and broad. Side-by-side details are preserved; what and where you place Accents on your piece will be how it appears after firing.

Structured Design Work

Designs can be outlined after they are created or Accents can be used to create a design pattern before glaze is applied.




Application Recommendations

The following application recommendations are based upon the original product development intent and use for the product. Information on alternative application methods is listed in the section "Usage Variations and FAQ's".


Usage Variations & FAQs


Q: What are some of the ways Accents are used?
A: A few suggestions for use are:


Q: Why do Accents seem to get thicker in short period of time?
A: Because Accents contain more clay than other glazes they will be prone to drying more quickly.  Even the small amount of air exposure at the nozzle's tip can lead to advanced drying and clogging of the metal/plastic tips of the detailer bottle. If Accents begins to dry in the bottle you can add a few drops of water to reconstitute Accents. Stir and test for proper viscosity. Add water sparingly so as not to thin Accents too much.


Q: What are some tips for creating dimensional effects with Accents?
A: You can increase the height of your detail work – to ¼” – by layering Accents. Apply a layer with the detailer bottle and let dry until a skin begins to form. Apply second and third layers the same as you did for the first.  Our testing has consistently provided ¼” details; you may achieve greater heights in your work.

For thicker lines and details remove the metal tip and dispense Accents directly through plastic tip. You may sacrifice precision and clarity of detail using this method.


Q: Can I use a clear glaze over Accents?
A: Clear glazing is not required as Accents will fire to a gloss finish. If you do clear glaze, allow Accents to dry completely before applying the clear glaze. The clear glaze may cause the dimensional effect to flatten or move during firing.


Q: What are some tips for applying Accents over other glazes?
A: Stiffer glazes (matte, underglazes), which do not move as much as gloss/ heavily fritted glazes, will preserve design work more than faster moving glazes.  Vertical surfaces and designs may move more than on a horizontal surface. Allow base glazes to completely dry before applying Accents.


Q: What are your recommendations for tinting White Accents?
A: Our best results were obtained by mixing Stroke & Coat® with White Accents at a ratio of 1 part Stroke & Coat® to 4 or 5 parts Accents.  If you choose to dedicate a bottle of White Accents to a new color simply add the Stroke & Coat® to the Accents bottle and mix well.  Alternatively, dispense White Stroke & Coat® onto a palette and mix in the Stroke & Coat® color(s) of you choice.  You can use a brush to apply your custom color or you can fill a spare detailer bottle to dispense.




Label Directions

Shake well. Apply even pressure to flow onto bisque or glaze. Allow longer drying time if applying clear glaze.  Fire to shelf cone 06 (999° C). Do not spray apply without proper personal protective equipment.
