About us


LEARN ABOUT OUR COMPANY

Porcelain Art presents Κ-81 a 100%  natural product, a composition based on polysaccharides, amino acids, sericin, silk proteins and other natural substances. Our goal is the creation of a product that responds, supports and resolves, in the best possible way, potencial ceramic issues. In addition, the new product Κ-81 enhances ceramic art by making even the hardest recipes easy, stable and applicable, while respecting both the user, as well as, the enviroment.

LEARN ABOUT K-81 TOOL

  • Κ-81 is a tool in the hands of both the professional and the amateur. By adding Κ-81, we can achieve a uniform dispersing of our ingredients, making the final product finer-grained, uniform, stable and easy to use.
  • Our material drys quickly without forming a film on the surface and forms breathing pores, which make it ideal for multiple applications of layers without erosion.
  • It has immediate absorption – sticks on bisque, raw, moist even on glazed surfaces.
  • In case we select our next layer to be a different material, of different color / composition, we will observe that our brush does not stain, because by adding Κ-81, our material does not degrade, is not “influenced” by the bottom layer.
  • As it is a natural ingredient, it burns at approximately 250 degrees, before shutting the pores of the glaze or clay, so that it does not create any problems during firing.

Dosage


HOW TO USE THE PRODUCT CORRECTLY

Even a very small percentage, in the order of 5% is enough to make the difference. The percentage could reach even higher without creating any issues, 10% or 15%, depending on the outcome we wish to achieve.
We mix our ingredients with the amount of water we apply so far. If our ingredients need soaking-feeding for some hours, follow the same. After making the recipe in the specific gravity you want, add the Κ-81 and stir until the mixture is homogenized.

A typical recipe is:

  • 100gr Glaze powder-stain
  • 130gr Water
  • 8-13gr K-81 (3,5% to 6% approximetaly)

Fields of Use


WHERE YOU CAN USE K-81

Over the ages, there have been innumerous article, lessons, advice, seminars, and experiments with one and only single goal. How to apply the glazes with the best possible way, especialy while using a brush. Brush, which is the main mean of expression for an artist is often impossible to be used with most of glazes and the materials available in the market. Often, glazes that are spectacular, of exceptional aesthetics, are technical beyond our capacity. The times has come to change the way we have been working up to now. With Κ-81 we are entering a new era! We are tunning into a new page and expand our horizons. We can now express our work and ispiration. With the help of Κ-81 we will be able to use all sorts of different materials, recipes and glazes in all possibles ways, without worrying about technical issues. Our recipes will remain steady and homogenized at all the stages of our work and no sediment will ever be created.

Κ-81 functions perfectly with any possible technique we wish to apply, from acidic to alkaline environment, which makes it ideal to work with all sorts of glazes.
