    I was on the fence about it but, while it doesn't show very well in the photo, there is a green tint to a lot of the black which makes it truly look like something alive and slimy, kind of creepy. I like it

    Is there such a thing as too much Carbon Trap? It looks as though someone dragged it up from the bottom of the ocean! LOL.

    Is the Frit 3110 in place of Neph Sy? or in addition to. And if it is in place of, is there any benefit to using it over Neph Sy?

    Thanks for the warning, I haven't used it on anything because of this issue so no worries at all.
  7. Hi, I mixed the Recipe "Old Gold Albany" I found somewhere probably on the web... don't remember where. It is: Albany Slip: 78% Lith Carb.: 10% Zircopax: 12% I love the way it looks on my Hazelnut Stoneware but it flakes off on the top edge (See images - top of tile) . Any ideas why it does this and how I might fix it? Thanks! -Mary

    Glaze Suggestions

    Maye I need to thin down my waterfall (or apply thicker), it does not break nicely at all. Here's a photo:

    Glaze Suggestions

    I had a thought to try doing the Barnard wash, sponging it off so it stays only in the texture and then glazing with a Jun glaze I mixed up which is a beautiful opalescent blue and I think it's got transparency so it may be an interesting combo. ... or a total flop Then I could also add waterfall brown around the neck and let it drip down a bit to find it's way around the texture. I really should do tests first, but I don't have the patience.

    Glaze Suggestions

    Thanks Pres, Yes, I do have waterfall mixed I don't think it's got any transparency but still, might break nicely over the texture.
  14. Hi all, So I was wondering if I could get some suggestions for a good satin mat, semi transparent, perhaps breaking over texture, glaze for this vase. Most of my glazes that I have mixed so far are opaque... none break over texture very well and I have some transparent greens, but they are boring... I thought I would paint on a Barnard wash then sponge it off leaving it in the textured areas, then I need a glaze that will be interesting and work with the texture. The clay is cone 6 white stoneware. I will be firing in my electric kiln. Thanks! -Mary :)
