Glaze color way off!

Recommended Posts

I recently spent three days creating a large tile and two more applying glaze and wound up with a disaster. For a large portion of it I used Coyote Cone 6 Leopard Shino which should produce a nice golden rust color. It was fired at cone 5 (which the instructions say is permissable) and came out an ugly muddy brown. I have no oidea what happened. Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Gary

Did you test the glaze before you fired your tiles?

I am inclined towards thinking the glaze application was too thin. Have used some of the Coyote shinos before and a thick application (applied by brush, two to three coats, allowing a coat to dry in-between) tended to provide better results.
