I use cedar heights red art clay in Reynolds Gold and my glaze comes out almost black with a gold sheen. My bag of red art is 25 years old, the clay may be dug from a different pit now and the chemistry of the clay has slightly change. I had that happen with a red terracotta from Laguna several years ago, horrible impurities, they ended up putting a warning lable on the box. Denice
