I am trying to make a matte wash with oxide for low firing. I tried a GB wash but it became glossy when firing. Any ideas or recipes ? Just oxide with water ? Gum ?

How much GB did you use? What temperature is low fire?

 

Pure oxide and water might work.

Gerstley or frit in too high a concentration is going to go glossy. But you need some to bind the oxide to the clay.

Make a slip from the clay body the consistency of milk, add the oxide to the slip,
add a pinch of borax if too dry.
