Duncan French Dimensions are a low fire raised glaze product used for decorative accents which are nontoxic and dinnerware safe and perfect for use by grade school children, though care should be used to avoid placing raised accents directly on eating surfaces. French Dimensions are similar to the many raised slip based products on the market, but, since the product is glaze based, the color intensity of French Dimensions is much greater than any of the slip based products and Duncan French Dimensions may be used over or under a glaze and most importantly can be applied to either greenware or bisque.
Duncan French Dimensions are packed in a 1.25 ounce bottle designed for ease of application. The bottle has a fine-writer tip built into the bottle for product application. Dogwood Ceramic Supply stocks all available colors.
The plate has been decorated with French Dimensions as
raised dots. The fish, and all other decorations are painted with underglaze.

Additional Information About Duncan's French Dimensions
Duncan's French Dimensions are a raised glaze product.
This means the formula of the French Dimensions includes glaze (frit) materials
and will self gloss just like a conventional glaze. The self glossing
ability of the French Dimensions increases the usage of the product as the
French Dimensions may be readily used in the place of a glaze on a project.
That said, the French Dimension is not ideal for dinnerware as the raised
surface of the product may harbor bacteria or interfere with eating.
The French Dimension products are not appropriate for high fire (Cone 4-6) application because the glaze content of the product will flatten out and run in the firing. In addition for some projects the gloss glaze appearance of the French Dimension may not be ideal. Spectrum's Raised Accent Colors are the ideal solution for either instance as the RAC is not a glaze product and will easily high fire with minimal movement.
