Hi Everyone, So like every beginner I am going through my "Shino" discovery phase I've mixed up my own Malcolm Davis Carbon Trap Shino of course based on all the gorgeous images I found on the internet... That's the look I want! Even all the wacky variations. Except, of course, for the one I got which is basically just brick red. (see attached) The clay body was a white stoneware and it was fired in a Gas reduction environment to cone 10 at the studio I being to. I have no control over firing schedule and from what I've read MD CT Shino requires Reduction early on for the Carbon Trap. But still, I'm wondering if I can do better than this (brick red) The recipe I used was this: Malcolm Davis Shino Soda Ash: 16.3 OM-4: 13 EPK: 17 Minspar: 9.3 Neph Sy: 38.6 Red Art: 5.7 I am wondering if I cut the redArt in half, or even leave it out entirely, if that would help. Anyone else have experience with this? The markings you see are where I painted on Wax Resist. I then let the piece sit for a few weeks. I am mixing up a new batch tomorrow.
