Suggestions For A Lime Green Glaze?

Recommended Posts

Hey all! My first volley of research didn't garner much, so I figured I'd see what the forum has to offer...

 

A friend of mine would like me to make something for her in a bright lime green (see attached photos for examples of the color). Any suggestions for a commercially-available glaze? PLEASE note that I don't mix my own for various reasons, so unless you're going to mix it for me and mail it (an option I'm not averse to if someone is willing), I have to go the commercial route. Any brand is fine, but it needs to be either ^05 or ^6. Suggestions?

 

Thank you all in advance!

...not my personal preference in colors, but it's not going in MY house. ;)

there is a commercial low fire  cone 06 , called neon green.  i have it but forget which company makes it.   i use it in raku and it looks about like what you want.   i will check the brand when i am at my studio but its a common one.    rakuku

Link to an item I've sold: https://www.etsy.com/transaction/200353319  (Ignore the lavender, sorry, I just want to show the green) It's a Duncan Concepts underglaze, Light Kiwi, can be fired to Cone 05 or Cone 5, works well and pretty much the same color at either temp. It's a very lime-y green, quite nice and behaves well.

 

This is probably not the right color but I really like it: Laguna Spring Green MS-74, Cone 5, very nice, not prone to bubbling. A little more of a cool green than you shared, but more vibrant than it appears to be in this photo. A very nice glaze and very pleasant to work with. Doesn't give any trouble.

Thanks, everyone! I had thought about underglaze as an alternative option. Question about the Spectrum Lime - is it transparent or opaque? I'm using a darker clay right now, but will likely switch back to a white or buff when this box is gone.
