Anyone know of a good one? I have tried several tests of recipes I've found online mostly, but they are still a bit too glossy for me. Would love to find a good, reliable soft matte white recipe..

from george and nancy wettlaufer's book "getting into pots" page 127 CLEAR MATTE


C6W.....(w for wollastonite) Cone 6


Kona soda spar.......................33

ball clay (C&C is very white).....25

zinc oxide...............................12

wollastonite............................30

the recipe does not call for bentonite but i bet one of our glaze gurus will know if it would help. i think i used 2% when i made this glaze last year. it really is a clear, smooth, matte glaze.

because of the zinc oxide i do not use it over green slips or underglazes. they will turn grey.

this one is also a great CLEAR glaze but you may have trouble getting Cornwall stone. it also changes green to grey.

SATIN MATTE Cone 6

dolomite...............20

cornwall stone......60

EPK....................20

for those of you not in the usa, EPK is Edgar Plastic Kaolin. see posts re this stuff...

there is a recipe for varigated slate blue in the book Mastering cone 6 glazes. it is a very nice WHITE matte glaze with the Zircopax and rutile. leaving out the additives may make a good clear.

VARIGATED BASE GLAZE Cone 6

wollastonite........................29

nepheline syenite.................4

frit 3195..............................20

EPK...................................30

silica...................................17
..........................................100

add

rutile................................5%

zircopax...........................8%

kathy triplett's book contains this recipe. i have made it and like it a lot.

Kathy's Stony Matte Cone 6 clear

dolomite............................3

wollastonite......................22

nepheline syenite..............43

Kaolin...............................22

I do not own this book and only copied out this much so i do not have any description of what kaolin to use. i used EPK.

have fun with these.

DARN! i just re read the original question and see that it is not for a clear but a white..........
