Looking for a cone 5/6 matte white glaze recipe

Recommended Posts

Natania    6

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.

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

 

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

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

..........................................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..........
