Robin's Egg Blue

Recommended Posts

Looking for a good Robin's egg blue glaze - cone 6 oxidation.

I've thought about taking an existing commercial glaze - Mid South Turquoise and perhaps adding a little copper carbonate and/or cobalt carbonate.

I know it would be an experiment but it's not quite turquoise enough for me.

Any thoughts?

Another way is to add Mason stain to a good ^6 clear . . .

 

So Clear ^6

Frit 3124 32.2%

Soda Feldspar -- Kona F4 (Minspar) 25.8%

Silica 19.4%

Whiting 12.9%

Kaolin -- EPK 9.6%

 

Add 5% Mason Stain #6464 for Robin's Eggshell Blue

 

(recipe from Michael Sherrill workshop)
