Glaze Policies

Stack of Laguna Glazes in pints and a gallon
Stock Glazes
Most Laguna Clay stock glazes are available in liquid and dry form. Stock liquid glazes are formulated for brushing and dry glazes are formulated for spraying and dipping. Brushing medium is available for adding to dry formulations.

Special Order Glazes
  • Custom Formula Glazes
    We keep a record of your proprietary glaze formula and a fired test tile for future reference. Your formula is kept in strict confidence and is not made accessible to anyone else without your permission.

  • Color Matching Service
    Send an existing glaze sample or a paper or fabric color sample, and we will match the color in a glaze or underglaze. The cost of this service depends on the color being matched. Inquire for more information about this service. All formulas developed by Laguna remain the property of Laguna Clay Company.

  • Order Time
    Please allow 7 to 10 business days for production of your custom glaze prior to shipping.

  • Minimum Order - Custom Glazes
    Dry glaze, fifty pounds. Liquid glaze, five gallons. Underglaze, one gallon.

  • Consistency
    Glaze is mixed to the consistency specified for application: dipping, spraying or brushing.

  • Packaging
    Dry blended glazes are packed in fifty pound sacks. Special order liquid glazes are packed in five gallon, plastic buckets. Other packaging requests must accompany order and may be subject to an additional charge.

  • Pricing
    The price quoted for your custom glaze is based on the cost of raw materials at the time the order is placed. All custom glaze orders must be paid for in advance unless customer has a Laguna account.
Testing & Safety
Firing conditions vary. Although all glazes are tested before shipping, it is essential that you test fire all glazes (stock or custom) in your kiln and your firing environment before using them in production. Laguna’s liability is strictly limited to the replacement of defective material.

Wear proper safety equipment when interacting with dry clays, glazes and other ceramic materials. This should include, but not be limited to, a NIOSH-approved respirator. Always read the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) on the ceramic materials you purchase.

Shelf Life
Due to the inherent organic rheology of liquid glazes, settling or gelling can occur over a period of time. We recommend you rotate stock and use most glazes within 8 to 12 months.
