Thanks so much, that is exactly the info I needed. I will start testing.
To get iron to show through in cone 6 oxidation, it takes a lot more iron than in reduction. I used to use a 10% iron slip in reduction, but use 20% iron in oxidation. Whether you're using a slip or straight iron oxide, it will show through most matte glazes if the iron/slip is thick enough. Glazes that are matte due due crystal growth rather than due to under-firing will tend to show it more because it will get into the melt more. Test, test, test....
