Hi there, I'm pretty new to glazing and looking for help. I've always been in love with Lucie ries work and have been trying to create a beautiful black glaze of hers made up of equal parts manganese dioxide and red clay. I'm not even sure you can call that a glaze which maybe why I'm having problems with running. The glaze looks beautiful but it runs! Is there anything I can do to stabilise the glaze while keeping the beautiful finish. I am firing it over earthstone original clay in an electric kiln to 1230. Up to 600 at 60/hr then at 100/hr up to 1230. Does anyone have any suggestions to help? I also wondered if anyone might know of a way of making this food safe? Can you layer a clear glaze over it? Appreciate your advice.
