Thompson Enamel reference # GC-16 Ground Coat for Steel labeled COBALT BLUE, but actually a medium gray- 8 OZ. DRY ground coat for steel and iron.
Used as a ground coat for low carbon steel prior to enameling.
ALSO RECOMMENDED – RM 27 – FERROUS GROUND COAT FOR STEEL – This one is a very dark gray color when fired. Used by John Killmaster and Alisa Looney.
Thompson’s formula for the GC-16 Cobalt Blue*** has changed – it is not blue, but more of a gray. I brought this to their attention after a customer mentioned it to me; Thompson tested it & found the color was indeed gray and not blue.

Liquid Form Brushable Enamels:
Excellent for use as a counter enamel. For optimum coverage sift 80 mesh dry enamel into freshly painted brushable enamel. Tamp down with fingers & dry. Cover front side of piece, dry and fire both sides at the same time. This minimizes warpage and eliminates a pickling step. These enamels can also be used as painting colors to achieve water color effects. Water soluble.
Liquid form enamel colors, for spraying, brushing, or dipping. Add water to mix with powder. Can be combined to create many other colors. Ceramic pigments can be added to additionally create other colors. Will produce crackle effects when fired over low expansion enamels such as the crackle bases , 1006 white, 1020 white, 2008 clear, and 1997 black.
