Looking for a stain recipe, that doesn't settle out, to paint consistently opaque outlines of shapes on pieces already glazed with a semi-transparent glaze, then fired in oxidation at cone 5--for both black and cobalt blue stains. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks.
I have had great success heavily applied on a buff glaze, with a 30 min. hold and firing to cone 5. Cone 6 always has been too high to get any true colors from the Potters Choice glazes. In addition to Ancient Jasper I've fired Rutile Blue, Chun Plum, and the Chun Plum over Rutile Blue. Again, all succeses were glazed heavily. Newmarket Potter
