I would like a specific look for a rabbit on a tile.

I'm looking for a white, or off white, cone 5-6 glaze that will have a Raku look with some lines or crackles. Anyone have any suggestions for a premade commercial glaze to be brushed on?

Thanks.
Gwen

Amaco also makes crackle glazes in several colors ... they have an online catalogue.

Frit 3134 2100 grams

Ball Clay 378

Zircon Flour 378



Fire to 1000c - 1080c

When you rech temp spray with find water, then reduce with paper or sawduse for 30min

When cooled re-heat to say 100-150 to open the cracks then use strong tea, coffee or anything dark to empasise the cracks.

I have used this recipe many times.
