Due to the inherent nature of ceramic arts, Clay Planet is not responsible for glaze firing defects of dry glazes (bloating, pinholing, running, blistering) or misuse from over/under firing, application or mixing errors. Any claims against defective glaze must include unused glaze portion for testing before it may be accepted for return. We strongly suggest you test fire all glazes/underglazes in small amounts before making large glaze purchases. What may work in one persons kiln, or as shown in a photo on this or other websites is not a guarantee of exact color or results! Thus is the nature of ceramic arts. Please test all glazes and clays in your kilns to see your own results.
