Kiwi ceramic stains come in powder form and can be used to colour glazes, underglazes, overglazes, engobes, slips and clay bodies. In general, they have greater temperature stability than many other commercially available stains. They are suitable for use from the lowest temperature at 1000 deg C (cone 06) to the highest at 1300 deg C (cone 10).

Underglaze Pencils $19.00
Hobbyceram underglaze pencils come in a range of bright colours:
Maximum firing temperature 1300 deg C
Kiwi Underglaze underglazes are suitable for applying directly onto greenware (leatherhard or bone dry) or onto bisqueware. They perform well at both earthenware and stoneware temperatures.
Colour should be applied as thinly as possible, in layers, to achieve the desired effect. If water has been lost a little more may be added but be careful not to dilute colour power. Application gives a translucent effect with 1 coat, semi opaque with 2 coats and opaque with 3 coats. Colour is brightest when clear glazed and fired to 1180 deg C, but full glaze firing range is 1000 to 1250 deg C.
