Ok having only used commercial glaze, I would love to try mixing one on my own. Does anyone have a recipe for a pretty light peach / melon color? Cone 5-6 As simple as possible?

Alas, you have run into a range of color that is a little more difficult without the use of a stain. Most orange and red colors as your melon is between the two are more difficult at ^6. So I would start with a base opaque, and add a Mason stain. Others might have a recipe that depends on the interaction of chromium and tin, but I don't have one for that color.

I can't wait to try your ripe cantaloupe glaze but a little confused with the Frit. Is that 20 grams of Frit 3249? My eye sight isn't great and I can't quite make it out.
Sorry if that's a dumb question.

Thanks

Gary, looks like 20 grams is what Darrel was saying. Looks like an interesting glaze. if you like the look of the finish, which looks like it should be a gloss, you could use this as a base glaze and use other stains to get a wider pallet of glaze colors.

The clear base glaze that Darrel posted, G1215U, is a wonderful clear for low expansion clays. It's expansion is 5.71 so it's probably going to shiver on a lot of clays. Min

Thank you for the clarification of the frit and weight.
