Glossy white glaze wanted
Posted 03 April 2013 - 08:52 AM
Help, please: I need a recipe for a (creamy) white glossy glaze. All I seem to come accross in the books I have is, at best, satin, or dry, and not glossy.
I work in stoneware and porcelain (oxidation, anything between 1240ºC - 1300ºC, or 2264ºF - 2372ºF, (not that familiar with cones - cone 6, minimum?).
I am based in Europe, so I can't have certain ingredients (US Ferro frits, for instance).
I can buy locally the usual culprits: kaolin, feldspars, dolomite, ball clay, nepheline syenite, whiting, silica, quartz, oxides, that sort of thing.
Anyone care to share?(:-)
It would be very much appreciated.

Take any glossy glaze recipe, remove the colorants (oxides), and add 10-12% zircopax/superpax/zircon opacifier or 5% tin oxide.
This. I prefer Zircopax, but that is preference.

For white color you can add zircon oxide 10-15%.

Back to testing, and I´ll see what comes out.
