Low-fire beaded glaze

Recommended Posts

Chad Jerzak    6

Hello- I'm looking for a low fire beaded/crawling type of glaze. This glaze will be raku fired and pretty much a base that can accept any variety of colorants. Anyone care to share something on this order?

 

Thanks for any help!

Here is one posted on Clayart a while back that was taken from lana Wilson's book.

David: I've been using the recipe credited to Lana

Wilson. It turns out white. I subbed OM4 for the

Kentucky ball clay.

 

60 nepheline syenite

22 magnesium carbonate

18 Kentucky ball clay

I recommend her book. It is glazing on the Right Side of the brain. Also you could try googling a bead glaze yourself.

If you want to purchase these specialty glazes, for the 'crawl glaze' go to http://www.amaco.com...-lead-free.html and for 'Lead Free White Pebble Specialty Glaze SP-400' go to http://www.amaco.com...-lead-free.html . They are both low fire glazes. I am not sure if they can be rakued. You can always ask Amaco if they can be rakued.

Here, also is an article on reticulated glazes by R. Hopper.

I do know there are commercial products out there that do a similar thing... ?? Not sure how they would work at Raku temps.
