I am looking for a golden-colored glaze for a Cone 6 red-clay (Laguna #90) sculpture. I'd like something that has variations in color and doesn't look like metallic gold, but more like something alive. I'm open to commercial glazes, as well as recipes. The glaze will be brushed on, not dipped. If anyone has had any experience with something along these lines, I'd love to hear about it. Thanks!

I'm not sure how gold you want (or expect) it to be, this was on a white ^6 stoneware clay, fired in oxidation.

I've also added a link to a pic of the same glaze fired by someone far more experienced than I'll ever be - recipe is also shown on the linked pic below, I altered the recipe as Cornish Stone is not readily available.

Check out Coyote Clay ... http://coyoteclay.co...dbyfamilies.htm . They have several different shino glazes that might do what you want. Roll over the glaze tiles and/or click on them to see the effect of various pottery pieces.

I am ready to test some glazes on the red clay. I just realized that the recipe referenced above is the same one I already mixed up and tried on white stoneware! The photo in the link is gorgeous. I hope it looks nice on the red clay, too. I'm going to try a couple of others, as well. Fingers crossed.
