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!
Raku is an adventure with fire!

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.
