This is deep firebrick with 2 thick coats of ancient jasper over it.

I love these glazes. At Potters Council, Amaco gave out sheets showing samples of combos, similar to their ads but at lot more of them. I don't know where else you can get them, but they are great to have in the studio for reference.
It would be very handy to have that!

I am really new to this forum (since 15 min. ago) and just happened onto this subject. I am a fan of Potters Choice glazes and have had good luck with all except Ancient Jasper by applying 3 good coats and firing to a cone 5 in my digitally-controlled kiln and holding for 1 hour. The only good results that I have had in layering PC glazes is by putting on a good base layer and using a split fan brush with strokes in different directions leaving gaps or open spaces for the base color to "peep" through (3 layers for the covering layer). I have really enjoyed your comments and do feel connected.

Has anyone found that you need a hold built in for glaze firing Potter's Choice glazes? I'm planning on slow firing to ^6 but unsure whether or not to include a hold. As with anything, it'll come down to testing, but since this was my first go with PC glazes I figured I'd ask around to see if there was any common starting point.

I've used them with success. They dog go one like a dream. I love the Albany slip brown over texture. Tenmoku works well. Seaweed needs a thick coat and can look awesome. I've pretty much stopped using Ancient Jasper. It just doesn't work for me no matter how thick.
I fire them all to cone 5 with a 15 minute hold.
