Hi all. Took a pottery hiatus for a long while. Now I am back and pulling together an approach that might actually work for me. Instead of pursuing gas firing co-ops that are across town or even out of town, I plan to use Standard 257 porcelain and stains in my electric kiln. So that gets me to 2 questions. I tried mason stains ..... 40 in all last week. All were great except the reds. They were pink. Beautiful pinks but certainly not red. (zinc and calcium were not an issue here) Can anyone suggest an actual red underglaze cone 9-10? Fire engine red? What about inclusion stains? Anyone tried this and found success? Coyote has one they say is smashing at cone 10. Anyone tried it? Next question is interesting as I do not have a strong glaze formulation background. I want a cone 9 transparent clear satin mat or satin glaze. I have found many low fire and cone 6 but not in a 9 or a 10. I tried Glazy and then digital fire. I suddenly had a pounding headache and needed some Pete's coffee. Followed by a cookie. This does not bode well. I actually have one in an old book by Emmanuel Cooper. But realizing it might not work at all I am looking for one someone has used and found successful. Please do holler at me if you have any ideas or suggestions Thanks so much
