My sponges are falling apart so it's time for the next trek to Georgie's, and assembling a shopping list. I'm going to try mixing some simple (-?) first glazes and as yet know nothing about it. I've had a look at digitalfire and glazy and couldn't figure out wtf they are talking about, same with my ancient Bernard Leach books. (White lead?......) Yes I could use a few new books, maybe I'll buy one at the store when I get there. So far the only glaze I've made was red iron oxide and water, which my kiln won't mature adequately or I didn't do it right. Question: I'd like some simple recommendations with the thought in mind, if you were recommending mixing first glazes to a 12 year old and wanted them to pick up say, 4-5 commercial dry ingredients for this purpose, what would you get? No uranium or plutonium pls. I have some small packets of mason stain, red and black iron oxides, all colors of clay, a little ash, that's about it.
