Dear All,

I have used peach colored mason stain but I always mix it with slip. I use Robin Hoppers slip recipe. I was told that the color of slip is always enhanced if you first put a white colored plain slip down and then the colored one. It has worked for me on Plainsmen's darkest red cone 6 clay.

Consider adding more stain to the glaze; 10% might not be enough.

According to the Mason Reference chart: 9. Glaze must contain 6.7 to 8.4% CaO (12-15% CaCO3). Your glaze is at 12.8%, so a bit high. I would try a different base, or try fiddling with that recipe. It's a tough one to alter without messing it up, though.

Here is the Clear ^6 I use with stains. It works really well with crimson Mason Stains. Please forgive the formatting. This is a nice smooth satin to shiny clear.
It is high in Calcium Carb, but it is the same code for crimson and it works well there.
Sue Hintz Clear 6^ reworked by Ron Roy back in late 90s.
